Please, I have a question:
I believe we write the school subjects in lower case. E.g.:
I study geography and math on Mondays and Fridays.
I study history and science on Wednesdays.
E.g. She finds Portuguese difficult. So she prefers to study English, math or chemistry.
I believe only the words Portuguese and English were written in capital letter because they can also refer to nationalities/languages. Is that the reason?
Does the word flower and floor have the same pronunciation? I have already listened to them in a dictionary on-line and both seemed to have the same pronunciation. But I'm in doubt because their phonetic transcription are different.
Many thanks for helping me,

AnonymousHi, there!Right. The exception would be "I will take World Geography 201 and "Physical Chemstisy 302" where you are listing a specific name of a college class. For plain old "geography, math, history, and science" use the lower case.

AnonymousDoes the word flower and floor have the same pronunciation?No. In my (British) accent they are quite different. Which dictionary did you listen to?
