    Wink The difference

    Hello dear teachers.

    I've been thinking recently what is the difference (or what is correct) between:

    "On Saturday none goes to the school."

    "On Saturday noone goes to the school."

    Thank you for your answer!

    The first is wrong, because "none" means "not any", whereas you want to mean "not anybody - you want to refer to people not things.

    The second would be correct (in British English) if you expressed it as "no one" - with a space inserted.
