PUNCTUATION
Look at this text. It is hard to read.

Look at the same text below. It is much easier to read.

My name is Pierre. I speak French and English. I am married. My wife is an accountant. Her name is Anna. We have two children. Bobby is 19 and Suzette is 16. I am a teacher.

The text is much easier to read when we use the correct punctuation.
These are some of the rules for punctuation.

FULL STOP / PERIOD    
Always put a full stop at the end of a sentence.
Always leave a space after a full stop.
