All sentences begin with a capital letter and so do proper nouns. When we are reading, capital letters help us to see where new sentences begin. Proper nouns include the names of people, places and organizations: i.e. Charles Dickens, London and the United Nations. Proper nouns are capitalized even when they are in the middle of a sentence.

Unless starting a sentence, the majority of words don’t need a capital letter. However, it’s important when writing English to know when to use them, otherwise your writing will be wrong. It’s especially important in tests and exams!
