Punctuation - Lesson #5

We will study how to use exclamation marks (!) in this lesson. Let's look at the different ways that we use exclamation marks when we write in English.

1. End of a sentence to show strong emotion or feeling
  • Stop it!
  • I love it!
  • You are the best!
  • I hate it!
  • Go away!
  • Come here!
2. With direct speech
  • "I hate it!" she yelled.
  • "Run!" the boy screamed to his friend.
  • "We won!" they shouted after the game.
Punctuation is essential for writing in English. Punctuation helps you express your thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a way that is easy for the reader to understand.
