Types of Paragraphs

To practice typing types of paragraphs you must have a knowledge of each paragraph layout. Paragraphs are the putting together of sentences in groups.

After each sentence you must give two spaces to begin another sentence. Some sentences ask a question so they end with a question mark (?). Others end with an exclamation mark (!) if there is need for urgency or emphasis in speech.

There are also short sentences and long ones, which can be broken up by a dash or comma, in order for the reader to connect the two parts quickly, and thus give a clearer understanding of the topic discussed.

Some sentences are direct speech so it consists of quotation marks("  ")to show up or identify the exact words of the speaker.
