    Re: where is the mistake in this sentence

    Do you mean apart from the fact that none of the punctuation marks are correctly placed/spaced, and that 'French' should be capitalised?

    How can it be correct with incorrect capitalisation and punctuation?

    I have marked all your punctuation and spacing errors above in red. Do you know how to punctuate properly in written English?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: where is the mistake in this sentence

    selwan, your clicking on the 'Thank' button has already obviated the need for a new post saying 'Thank you', such is one of the many unwritten rules on this forum.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello, Selwan:

    In my opinion, your English is very good for someone who has studied it for only three months. Keep up the good work!

    I believe that there is a difference between "in case" and "in case of."

    One book says that "in case" = If ("I'll be there in case you need me"); "in case of" = When there is ("In case of fire, break [the] glass").

    That information comes from The Columbia Guide to Standard American English (1993) by Kenneth G. Wilson.


    *****

    Maybe your sentence should read something like:

    "In case studying French does not interest you, you can always switch to English."
