There’s been a long time since we did some grammar stuff, don’t you think?
A Sentence for Every Occasion
By Jacqueline Schaalje
Warning: This is a lesson at Expert level. If you’re a beginner, read only the first part in this article about simple sentences, and then wait for the next Newsletter.
We’ll continue on the subject of sentences. In this article you’ll learn how to write and recognize simple sentences, then compound sentences, and finally complex sentences.
As a general tip: Learn simple sentences first, and then try more difficult ones. Perfecting the English grammar takes time, so better start with simple sentences and gradually build complex ones.
First learn to say and write simple sentences with the basic word order.
SUBJECT – VERB – OBJECT(S) – PLACE – TIME
Javier eats an apple on the bus every morning.
Javier = the subject
Eats = verb
An apple = object
On the bus = place
Every morning = time
