English Grammar Notes: Your vs You’re

A common mistake not only for students learning English but also for native speakers is the difference between Yourand You’re in written English.

This happens because both words sound the same when they are spoken.

What is the difference between Your and You’re?

The most simple explanation is that:

Your = a possessive adjective. It shows possession, that something belongs to the person you are talking to. e.g. This is not my pen, it is your pen.

You’re = You are. It is a contraction (or short way of writing). e.g. You’re crazy = You are crazy

Here is a chart we have created to show you more about the difference how to know when you are using the correct one:
