Worksheet Overview

We use capital letters at the start of every sentence, but there are some words that always need capital letters, wherever they come in a sentence.


Capital letters are needed for all the names of people, places and dates.

These are called proper nouns.

Book and film titles are also given capital letters. Usually all the words in the title start with a capital letter except little words like 'and' and 'the'. The first word of the title always has a capital even if it is a little word.
