    A good news -

    Dear teachers,

    I think "a good news" is grammatically wrong. Just want to double-confirm with you.



    Regards

    Re: A good news -

    You're right. It's wrong. It should be either "Hongkong Post has good news for ..." or "Hongkong Post has some good news for ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'Hongkong Post has a piece of good news for ...'
    The text in red is grammatical but unnecessary. Am I right or wrong?
    Not a teacher.
