    Re: My name mooyong from thailand.

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com, mooyong.

    Does your username mean "dried pork"? Is it your favorite food?

    We're looking forward to your first short sentence.

    Re: My name mooyong from thailand.

    How do you type capital letters on the smart phone or the computer keyboard? Don't you used the "shift" key to do that?
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    I think "use" is correct here.

    I was trying to get at the missing word. See above.
    Yes, we change from lower case to upper case by using the Shift key, but I've never heard that referred to as "shifting letters to capitals".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Texters tend to put everything in lower case.

    Not a professional teacher

    I agree- Twitter is the place for all-caps.
