Come on, another 101 on Grammar? We’ve already painfully done all the underlining and bolding to show how correct grammar can be important. What else could there possibly be to learn?

As some of you may recall from our previous Grammar 101, proper grammar can make or break not only your school work, but also contests on HEX. From activities like Quidditch to the RP Factor, excessive grammar errors can tremendously impact your contest entry. To reiterate the importance of proper grammar, this month you’ll not only get to decide on what grammar sentences would work well in a paragraph, but also have more opportunity to practice checking your own entries for grammar mistakes.


Task
This month’s 101 comes in two parts. For the first part of this month’s task, you are to decide which sample sentence in each set is grammatically correct. Be sure to also look out for proper spelling in each set, as that will be taken into consideration with which would be correct. Please use the following form when submitting entries for each set:

Set number:
Correct sentence (either a or b):


SET ONE
a. The dog is ran fast.
b. The dog is running fast.


SET TWO
a. Would you like to dance with me.
b. Would you like to dance with me?


SET THREE
a. The carival was fun!
b. The carnival was fun!


SET FOUR
a. Where is the dog?
b. Were is the dog?


SET FIVE
a. The man is blewing bubbles.
b. The man is blowing bubbles.


PART TWO
For the second part of the task, please submit your own sample RP Post. To be considered for prizes, your sample may only include up to five grammar mistakes. You must make an original post to submit. However, the post can be based on any prompt of your choosing.

The sample post must be between 150 and 500 words in length. You may use canon characters or original characters for the task.



Rules
1. All HEX and RPC Teaching Center rules apply.
2. All entries should be posted in this hidden replies thread. Only your first submission will be counted, so please be sure to submit both parts at one time.
3. You must include both parts of the task to be considered for prizes, as well as meet the requirements for each part.
4. All work must be your own work. The RP sample post you submit MUST be original for this contest. Therefore, you cannot submit a previous post used in another roleplay. However, you are welcome to choose whatever type of prompt you would like for this contest.
5. Winners will be randomized among all eligible entries.
6. All entries are due by October 31st at 11:59 p.m. HEX time
7. Please post any questions in this thread or send an owl to KatieNumbers.


Prizes
1st: 750 HP
2nd: 500 HP
3rd: 300 HP

does this mean that you want us to deliberately put in 5 grammar mistakes?
or, can we submit something that we think has no mistakes?

It means you are only allowed to have up to five grammar mistakes in it. So, the fewer the mistakes would be ideal

I'll reword that a bit to make that more clear

Thank you for clarifying. I was going to ask the same thing!
I'm actually not the best with grammar, so this will be interesting.

question about the sample post....does it have to be in the Hidden replies Thread with the first part and does it have to do HP related?

Hey there

Yes, it needs to be included with the first part in your submission. It doesn't have to be HP related and can be about any prompt you would like

In regard to spelling mistakes will the British version of words be accepted as correct or should I try and convert them to American English?

Is it proof that I'm really old if I recognise the three guys on the left, but not the ones on the right??
