‘But you’re too advanced to play Minecraft,’ shouted Sparky to the

🚦These homophones mainly trip people up when they are trying to say you are but use your instead of you’re, as they’ve forgotten about the apostrophe and the shortening of two words, so they just put your instead. Some people get confused because they think an apostrophe always means belonging, so they would write you’re bags instead of your bags. Here are some more sentences that use both in the right way:

You’re going to be late for your lesson.
Your grades need to be good if you’re going to go to college.
You’re wrong if you think your trainers are worth that much!
