Why do I need to know how to use semi-colons and colons?

In this Do-English blog post we will explain when to use a semi-colon and when to use a colon.
In English many people including a lot of native speakers have no idea how to use a semi-colon or a colon.
But if you want to write like a professional, especially in business English you should keep this guide handy at all times.

Semi-Colons.

Semi-Colons have four uses.

Semi-colon use one.

The simplest way to think of the semi-colon is something that is stronger than a comma, but not as strong as a full stop.
You can use it in long sentences, so you don’t over use commas, and still have a final full stop at the end.
Example:

“Their honour precarious, their liberty provisional, lasting only until the discovery of their crime; their position unstable, like that of the poet who one day was feasted at every table…”

This sentence is actually 958 words long, the longest in English literature and was written by Marcel Proust.

Semi-Colon use two.

When a list has a number of related items that are separated by a comma, we use semi-colons to separate the items.
semi-colons (;) and colons (:) use oneExample:

At Do-English we have clients from: Valencia, Spain; Lima, Peru; Lisbon, Portugal; Mexico City, Mexico; and Miami, USA.

In this sentence the city and country is one item and are separated by commas.

Semi-Colon use three.

When two sentences are related, and you want to emphasise their relationship, you can use a semi-colon to join the sentences.
We would do this instead of using words such like: and, or, for, so, which do not have the same power as using a semi-colon.
Example:

Here are two related sentences.
The new contract was signed last week. I think it is a bad deal for us.

We can use ‘and’ instead of the full stop to make one sentence.
The new contract was singed last week, and I think it is a bad deal for us.

However when we use semi-colon we can make a very strong statement.
The new contract was signed last week; it is a bad deal for us.

Semi-Colon Use Four.

When we use the words, otherwise, however, nevertheless, and therefore, as connectors put the semi-colon before the connector and put a comma after the connector.
Example:

We did not finish the contract negotiations; however, we agreed to continue next week.

Colons.

Colons are a pause that you use to introduce related information from a previous statement and have two main uses.

Colons Use one.

Colons are used to introduce a list of items.
Example:

When you take an online English lesson with Do-English you will need: A computer, headset with microphone, your book, a pen and some paper.

Colons use two.

semi-colons (;) and colons (:) use twoColons are used to introduce an example, explanation, conclusion or to emphasize an earlier statement.
Example (to introduce an example):

In every Do-English blog we always give examples, the word example is followed by a colon and the example.

Example (to introduce an explanation):

I am sorry I was late for the meeting: the traffic was really bad, my satnav broke and I got a flat tyre.

Example (to introduce a conclusion):

I have read the contract carefully and talked to our lawyers: this is a good deal and I am happy to sign it.

Cuando usar punto y coma (;) y coma(:)
En este blog post de Do-English explicaremos cuándo usar punto y coma y cuándo usar coma.
¿Por qué es necesario saber la diferencia?
En inglés, muchas personas, incluidos muchos angloparlantes nativos no saben cuando usar un punto y coma o la coma.
Pero si quieres escribir como un profesional, especialmente en inglés comercial, debes tener esta guía a mano en todo momento.

Punto y coma.
El punto y coma tiene cuatro usos.

Primer uso del punto y coma.
La forma más simple de pensar en el punto y coma es en un uso algo más fuerte que una coma, pero no tanto como un punto.
Se puede usar en oraciones largas, para no usar comas en exceso, y utilizar un punto al finalizar la oración.

Ejemplo:
“Su honor es precario, su libertad provisional, que dura solo hasta el descubrimiento de su crimen; su posición inestable, como la del poeta que un día se festejó en cada mesa … ”
Esta oración tiene en realidad 958 palabras, la más larga en la literatura inglesa y fue escrita por Marcel Proust.
Click aquí para leer todo.

Segundo uso del punto y coma.</>
Cuando una lista tiene una serie de elementos relacionados (un grupo) que están separados por una coma, usamos punto y coma para separar esos grupos.

Ejemplo:
En Do-English tenemos clientes de: Valencia, España; Lima, Perú; Lisboa, Portugal; Ciudad de México, México; y Miami, EE. UU.
En esta oración, la ciudad y el país son un elemento (un grupo) y están separados por comas.

Uso tercero del punto y coma.
Cuando dos oraciones están relacionadas, y desea enfatizar su relación, se puede usar un punto y coma para unir las oraciones.
Esto se puede hacer en lugar de utilizar palabras como: y, o, para, así, que no enfatizan tanto como un punto y coma.

Ejemplo:
Aquí hay dos oraciones relacionadas.
El nuevo contrato se firmó la semana pasada. Creo que es un mal negocio para nosotros.

Podemos usar ‘y’ en lugar del punto para hacer una oración.
El nuevo contrato se firmó la semana pasada, y creo que es un mal negocio para nosotros.

Sin embargo, cuando utilizamos el punto y coma podemos hacer una declaración muy fuerte.
El nuevo contrato se firmó la semana pasada; es un mal negocio para nosotros.

Cuarto uso del punto y coma.
Cuando usamos las palabras, de lo contrario, sin embargo, y por lo tanto, Se pone el punto y coma antes del conector y una coma después del conector.

Ejemplo
No terminamos las negociaciones del contrato; sin embargo, acordamos continuar la próxima semana.

Coma

La coma es una pequeña pausa para introducir información relacionada de una declaración anterior y tiene dos usos principales.

Primer uso de la coma.
La coma se utilizan para presentar una lista de elementos.

Ejemplo:
Cuando tomes una clase de inglés online con Do-English, necesitarás: un ordenador, un audífono con micrófono, un libro, un bolígrafo y papel.

Segundo uso de la coma.
La coma se usa para introducir un ejemplo, explicación, conclusión o para enfatizar una declaración anterior.

Ejemplo (para introducir un ejemplo):
En cada blog de Do-English siempre damos ejemplos, la palabra ejemplo es seguida por una coma y el ejemplo.

Ejemplo (para introducir una explicación):</>
Lamento haber llegado tarde a la reunión: el tráfico fue realmente malo, se rompió mi navegador y se me pinchó un neumático.

Ejemplo (para introducir una conclusión):
He leído el contrato cuidadosamente y hablé con nuestros abogados: este es un buen negocio y me complace firmarlo.

Ejemplo (enfatizar una declaración anterior):
Monté mi bicicleta a través de la ciudad hasta la reunión de negocios: ¡olía a sudor y olor corporal cuando llegué!

Aprende las palabras correctas para aquellos que amamos o no.

¿Cuáles son las palabras correctas para los miembros de una familia?
En este blog post explicaremos qué palabras se deben utilizar para nombrar los miembros familiares.

¿Cuáles son los nombres en inglés de los familiares más cercanos?
En inglés, la familia inmediata son aquellos con quienes se está casado o se tienen relaciones consanguíneas.

Cuando dos personas se casan, son marido y mujer
El marido (husband) es el hombre y la esposa (wife) es la mujer.
En los matrimonios del mismo sexo, son los dos maridos o las dos esposas.

Example:
Speaker One “Hello, I would like to introduce you to my wife, Mary”
Speaker Two “Hello Mary, this is my husband, John”</P

Tu madre y tu padre son las dos personas que te dieron a luz.
Si tus padres dieron a luz a otro bebé y ese bebé es un varón, entonces él es tu hermano.
Si tus padres dieron a luz a otro bebé y ese bebé es una mujer, entonces ella es tu hermana.

Example:
Speaker one: “My name is Joanne, my father’s name is Mike, and my mother’s name is Isabel. I have one brother, Phil and two sisters, Pat and Patricia”

Si no tienes hermanos o hermanas, entonces eres hijo único.
Example:
Speaker one “My name is Titus, and I am an only child, it’s great I get lot’s of presents at Christmas”

Madrastra, padrastro, hermanastro, hermanastra
Si tu madre se casa con un hombre que no es tu padre, el nuevo marido de tu madre es tu padrastro.
Si tu padre se casa con una mujer que no es tu madre, la nueva esposa de tu padre es tu madrastra.
Si tu padrastro o madrastra tienen hijos, entonces estos son tu(s) hermanastro(s), para chico(s) o hermanastra(s) para chica(s).
Example:
Speaker one “My step fathers name is Matt. My mother married him after my father died”

Si una persona, con hijos adultos se casa, es normal que los hijos adultos simplemente llamen al nuevo esposo o esposa por su primer nombre sin (step)
Example:
Speaker one “My father died when I was 30, my mother remarried a when she was sixty, her new husband is Bill and he is a nice man”

Si dos personas no se casan, pero viven juntas, esto se llama ‘partnership’.
Ambas personas en una asociación, se llaman ‘partners’.
En una pareja del mismo sexo, ambas personas son llamadas ‘partners’.
Example:
Speaker one “This is Bill, he is my partner, we have lived together for 10 years”

Si el estado reconoce esta unión como legal, ésta se le llama ‘civil partnership’

Cuando dos personas se casan, se puede usar la palabra ‘spouse’ en lugar de ‘husband’ o ‘wife’.
‘Spouse’ se usa sólo en matrimonios, no con parejas que no se han casado.
Es normal usar la palabra ‘spouse’ en una comunicación habitual. Se usa mayormente en situaciones oficiales y en documentos.
Example:
Speaker one; “I need some information, are you married?”
Speaker two “Yes I am”
Speaker one “What is your spouse’s name?”
Speaker two “Bill”

Suegra, suegro, cuñado y cuñada.
When people are married, the family of their spouse are called their in-laws.
En un matrimonio, la familia de cada contrayente se llaman ‘in-laws’
Example:
Speaker one “John’s mother, my mother in-law, has been very good to us since we got married, she helps out with the children and is nice to talk too”.

Cuando dos personas no viven juntos pero tienen una relación, son novios ‘boyfriend’ y novia ‘girlfriend’.
Cuando dos personas tienen una relación de este tipo, están comprometidos ‘dating’
Example:
Speaker one “I have been dating my girlfriend Joanne for six months, I really love her, I hope we will get married next year”

Otros miembros familiares
Tía, tío, primo, sobrina y sobrino
Aunt and Uncle
Tía y tío

La hermana de tu madre o de tu padre es tu tía.
Normalmente los niños pequeños usan la palabra tía antes del nombre de pila de su tía

Example:
Speaker one “I am spending the summer in my Auntie Mary’s house”

El hermano de tu madre o de tu padre es tu tío
Normalmente los niños pequeños usan la palabra tío antes del nombre de pila de su tío

Example:
Speaker one “I love my birthday; Uncle George always brings me a big present”

Primos
Los hijos de tu tío o tía son tus primos
‘Cousins’ se usa tanto en masculino como en femenino
Example:
Speaker one “This summer my cousin John, and my cousin Mary are coming to stay”

Sobrina y sobrino
Si tu hermano o hermana tienen hijos, son tus sobrinos o sobrinas.
‘Niece’ es para chicas y ‘nephew’ para chicos
Example
Speaker one “My sister has two children, my nice Mary is nice, but my nephew Brain is horrible”

Muerte y divorcio
Viuda, Viudo y Ex

Cuando el marido o la esposa muere, la persona que se queda viva es una viuda o un viudo.
‘Widow’ es en femenino y ‘widower’ para masculino.

Example
Speaker one “My mother died two years ago, and my father is happy to be a widower”

Cuando una relación acaba, se usa la palabra ‘Ex’
Se pone la palabra ‘Ex’ antes del sustantivo (no del nombre personal) de la persona que se tenía la relación.

Example:
Speaker one, “I really don’t like it, my girlfriend is still very friendly with her ex-husband”

Hola, Cómo estás?
14 saludos en Inglés que tienes que saber

¿Cuando se dice ‘hello’ y cuando deberíamos decir ‘Howdy’?
Saludar a la gente es fácil, ¿cómo hacerlo correctamente?
De hecho, hay muchas maneras de saludar en inglés.

Algunos saludos son obvios y conocidos, como ‘hello’, y algunos son muy locales, como ‘story’.

En esta publicación de blog, te ayudaremos a aprender 14 saludos en inglés que puedes usar en situaciones sociales y en negocios.

El nivel de este blog post es A2 – Pre-Intermediate
El tiempo de lectura es de 6 minutos

Hello

‘Hello’, es el saludo más común en inglés.
Es un poco aburrido, pero no te equivocas al usarlo, la mejor respuesta para ‘Hello’es,

‘Hello’. Sin embargo, la mayoría de los hablantes nativos de inglés agregarán un saludo extra a hello.

¿Cómo?

En inglés, siempre es educado agregar algunas palabras más después de hello, la mayoría de esas palabras comienzan con la palabra how.

Hello, how are you?
Hello, how are you doing?

Independientemente de cómo se sienta uno, feliz o deprimido, es normal responder a preguntas con respuestas positivas, y preguntarle a la otra persona lo mismo.

I am well, how are you? Or I am well, and you?
I am good, and how are you doing? Or I am good, and you?

How – y algo más

Otras cuestiones sobre qué se usa con hello o por solas son:

How is everything?
How are things?
How is life?
How is your day?
How is your day going?

Estos saludos son informales y no deben usarse en reuniones de negocios, o cuando se encuentra con alguien por primera vez.

La respuesta correcta es generalmente positiva, seguida de una pregunta sobre el otro interlocutor usando la coletille “y tú?” y “usted?”:

Saludos con ‘what’
Los saludos con ‘what’ son informales y se deberían usar con familiares y amigos.
No hace falta decir ‘hello’ antes de los saludos con ‘what’

What is up?
What is new?
What is going on?

Las respuestas standard a los saludos con ‘what’ son normalmente frases negativas seguidas por la coletilla “and you”:

Nothing, and you?
Not much, and you?

Good or Nice’?
‘Good and Nice’ se pueden combinar con ” see you ” o ” meet you ” para hacer saludos.

En situaciones informales combinamos ‘good’ con ” see you “, normalmente ponemos ‘hello’ antes de Good o Nice.

Hello, nice to see you.
Hello, good to see you.

La correcta respuesta es repetir el saludo y añadir ‘too’

Nice to see you too.
Good to see you too.

Cuando good y nice se combinan con ” meet you”, la situación es normalmente un negocio, consulta la sección de saludos en negocios.

Long

Si no se ha visto a una persona en mucho tiempo, se puede usar uno de los siguientes saludos:

Long time, no see, how are you?
Long time, how are you?
It has been a while, how are you?

Estos saludos se pueden utilizar en situaciones familiares y formales, la respuesta normal es en positivo, seguido por: ‘and you’.

I am great, and you?
Very well, and you, how are you?

Saludos en situaciones de negocios
Es importante no cometer errores en los entornos de negocios, si los saludos son incorrectos, se podría generar una imagen negativa.

El saludo básico en estas situaciones suele ser con la palabra good.

Good Morning.
Good Afternoon.
Good Evening.

Cuando se usa el saludo con ‘good’ en negocios, no se debería utilizar la palabra ‘hello’
La respuesta más simple y apropiada es repetir el saludo:

Good Morning
Good Afternoon
Good Evening

¿Es correcto en negocios usar ‘good’ o ‘nice’?
Como ya hemos dicho, se puede usar “good” y “nice” con ” to meet you ” en inglés comercial. Sólo se debe usar cuando quedemos con una persona por primera vez.
Se puede usar solo o con Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening

Good Morning, nice to meet you.
Good Morning, good to meet you.

La respuesta standard es repetir el saludo y añadir ‘too’.

Good morning, nice to meet you, too.
Good Morning, good to meet you, too,

How do you?
El saludo más formalin inglés es “How do you do”.
La respuesta correcta es, “How do you do?”

Si citamos todos los saludos en argot de inglés, estarías leyendo este blog durante meses, aquí nombraremos unos cuantos.

En Inglaterra, se puede utilizar el saludo:
