    Red face Punctuation

    Is it 'Technology course' or 'Technology Course' with a capital c?
    Thanks very much.

    Re: Punctuation

    It could be either "Technology Course" or "technology course", depending on the context.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Re: Punctuation

    Note this is an issue capitalization, not punctuation, and neither is a very descriptive thread title.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    But what about 'Technology course' with only the T capitalised.
    Thanks

    Re: Punctuation

    That is not a good choice.
    Lower-case for both is probably your better choice.
    Full sentences are always better.
