Hello,

English is not my first language and I am just wondering if the wording for these 2 sentences is correct?

Should I say:
advertised on Government of Canada’s website or
advertised on the Government of Canada’s website

Also, should I say:

I also have a great interest in geography, since I have a degree in it.
I also have a great interest in geography, since I own a degree in it.

@Marie1541,
Golly Marie, after some 80 years in the Journ Estab, I must congratulate you for your internet in the single most difficult language

advertised on Government of Canada’s website or
advertised on the Government of Canada’s website

Wow Marie! The first might imply that 'Government of Canada’s website" is unique whereas the second suggests that 'the Government of Canada’s website' is only a variation recently introduced but nor officially renamed.. I will get arguments.

Also, should I say:

I also have a great interest in geography-- since I have a degree therein.
(But Don't like #2 but can't tell ya why.]
