    The aim in writing is always to write in complete sentences which are correctly punctuated. Sentences always begin with a capital letter and end in either a full stop, exclamation or question mark. A complete sentence always contains a verb, expresses a complete idea and makes sense standing alone. But to SPEAK in a complete sentence means to say what you mean. Don't leave out key elements of your sentence. This means not speaking too briefly on a subject. For example if you're at the dinner table and your mom asks if you want more green beans and you say "yes" this is NOT a complete sentence because you lack what you're saying yes to. If an outsider were to walk in at the exact moment you said "yes" they would have no idea what the conversation was about. So to make this a complete sentence you would say "Yes, I would like more green beans". Obviously people dont generally speak like this because it's much easier to reply with a quick yes or no.

    It means not skipping parts of a sentence.

    'Want beans?' 'Yeah.'

    Those are two incomplete sentences. To speak 'complete' sentences you would say 'Do you want some beans?' and the other person would say 'Oh yes please, I'd love some'.

    Being able to articulate, clearly and concisely, while others understand what you've said.

    to use whole words and all the words in a sentence not just some. (eg: how are you instead of how you)
