Do you need an easy way to remember when you should use i.e. and e.g.?
Use i.e. when you are referring to the topic in the sentence in a different way. An easy way to remember this is, “in other words.”
- I love learning, i.e., I attended all Organizational Development and Learning’s offerings last year.
Use e.g. when you list out examples. An easy way to remember this is, “example given.”
- I love learning, e.g., development classes, webinars and leadership development series.
