Spelling and Punctuation

Should I spell organisation with an ‘s’ or a ‘z’? Does it even matter? What is a semi-colon and is it used differently in English than in my own language? These issues and more will be dealt with in this brief video.


Spelling Errors?

"I can write a piece of a text quite easily, actually. It’s the spelling, however, that causes the most problems, especially the words that sound the same, such as ‘affect’ and ‘effect’. Now, before I start writing, I always open an online dictionary , such as this one, to help me. This site also has a thesaurus which offers me perhaps more academic alternatives".
