Adjectives III, Pronunciation, Asking and Answering Questions in Present Past and Future Tense. 

Hi there!

Welcome to class. In this class, you will be learning how to correctly use adjectives in sentences and also learn new words.

Happy Learning.

GRAMMATICAL ACCURACY

Correct Use of Adjectives in Short Sentences.

When you want to describe something around you, what you taste, smell or feel, you use words. And those words are adjectives.

Examples of those words are; brilliant, tall, pretty, short, plenty, black, blue, big, round, and so on.

How can you correctly use adjectives in sentences?

Many times, we use more than one adjective in a sentence before a noun.

To use more than one adjective correctly in a sentence, there are patterns to follow.

  1. In using more than one adjective, we use the adjective of size or quantity first, then colour.

For example; the big black bag

Big black are adjectives and, in this case, we have two adjectives describing the noun ‘bag’.

Bassey lives in a tall green house

She has a short white dog.

  1. Use of “and” and “comma” correctly in adjectives.

You should have noticed that we did not use a comma or and in the previous examples.

For example:

The big and black bag

The big, black bag

She has a short and white dog

She has a short, white dog.

We only use “and” when adjectives are from the same group.

Examples:

  1. Eva has a brown and blue skirt.
  2. She lives in a blue and red building
  3. My white and black dress is torn

We also use ‘and’ and commas when we have more than one adjective describing a noun. For instance;

  1. I have a red, yellow and green skirt.
  2. She is brave, brilliant and beautiful.
  3. Her skin is soft, shiny and oily.

 LISTENING AND SPEAKING

TOPIC: Asking and Answering Questions on Present, Past, and Future Actions.

Actions words are known as verbs.

Like:

                        

Singing                                                                                  Writing

                                  

 

Jumping                                                                               Sleeping

Present Tense Verbs are verbs that show the actions happening in the present.

E.g. Run, Swim, Go, Jump etc.

Past tense verbs are verbs of actions performed in the past. For example;

I was at the zoo yesterday.

Future tense verbs are verbs of actions that will happen or yet to be performed.

E.g. I will be in school tomorrow.

Let us learn how to ask and answer questions in present, past and future tense.
