Subject: English as a Second Language
Assuming the student has already learned nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. What are tenses and articles when learning English as a second language? Please provide an example using whole sentences together.
Tenses explain when something has happened or occurred. Past tense - describes a past event or state of being. For example: I jumped in the pool. (past event) I was excited. (past state of being) Present tense- describes a current event or state of being. For example: I jump in the pool every Sunday (present event) I am excited. (present state of being) Future tense- expresses a future event or state of being. For example: I will jump in the pool. (future event) I will become exited. (future state of being) Articles are adjectives that provide extra information about a noun. For example: "a", "an", "the" Articles define if something is specific or unspecific
What are coordinating conjunctions? How do you know which is the correct coordinating conjunction to use when creating a sentence?
Coordinating Conjunctions are a grammar tool necessary to use when trying to connect words, phrases, and clauses. There are seven different types of coordinating conjunctions. Any easy way to remember them all is by using an acronym known as, "FANBOY". F- For, A- And, N- Nor, B- But, O- Or, Y- Yet, Usually, you use these when connecting two independent clauses. Independent clauses can be classified as two complete sentences containing a subject and a verb. Here is an example of two independent clauses: "Alex washed his dog." (Subject: Alex, Verb: washed) "Alex went grocery shopping." (Subject: Alex, Verb: went) Now, here is an example of combining these sentences with a "FANBOY" conjunction: "Alex washed his dog, and he went grocery shopping." Now, when writing one of these sentences make sure both parts before and after the ", and" have a subject and a verb. The Alex in the second sentence after the conjunction will be replaced with "he". Some incorrect versions of this sentence would be: Alex washed his dog, and went grocery shopping. Or Alex washed his dog and he went grocery shopping.
