Lesson 1

LI: To use parentheses to add information.


Parentheses are used to add additional information about what you are writing about. Around the parentheses you should use:

  • Brackets
  • Dashes
  • or commas

Here is an example of how they are used:

Boris Johnson (the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom) was exhausted after his long day at work.


Boris Johnson - the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom - was exhausted after his long day at work.


Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, was exhausted after his long day at work.


The parentheses in this example is in bold.
