** Today's Tip **

Confused about when to use capital letters? Read on to learn about the difference between proper nouns and common nouns, and find out when we use capital letters.

In English, we capitalise proper nouns no matter where they appear in a sentence.

Proper nouns are names for specific places, things or people.

On the other hand, common nouns are general names for places, things or people.

Take a look at the following examples:

'Australia' is a proper noun. The word 'country' is a common noun as it can refer to any country.

"Australia is a country with a population of over 24 million people."

"There are lots of countries that I want to visit in the future and Australia is one of them."

The 'Sydney Harbour Bridge', 'Tower Bridge' and 'Golden Gate Bridge' are examples of proper nouns. The word 'bridge' is a common noun as it can refer to any bridge in the world.

"The Sydney Harbour Bridge was opened in 1932. The bridge is made of steel."

"There are a number of famous bridges in the world. These include Tower Bridge in London and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco."

'Aunt Mary' and 'Uncle Joe' are proper nouns. 'Aunts' and 'uncles' are examples of common nouns.

"I'm having dinner with Aunt Mary on Thursday. Would you like to join us?"

"My mother has three sisters and one brother, so I have three aunts and one uncle. They live in Adelaide."

** Today's Tip **

Here are some useful phrases for asking for someone on the phone:
"Is Mr Wilson available please?"
"Could I please speak to Mr Wilson if he's available?"
"Could you please put me through to Mr Wilson?"
"I'd like to speak to Mr Wilson if possible please."

If someone is unavailable, you might hear the following responses:
"I'm sorry, he's in a meeting at the moment."
"I'm sorry, he's not available at present."
"I'm sorry, he's out of the office at the moment."

If you're asked to leave a message, you can say:
"Could you get him to return my call please?"
"If he could call me back, that would be great."
