tell which person or thing we are speaking about.
The personal pronouns in English are:
2. Verb "to
The verb "be"
means to exist.
It is a linking verb, it links a subject
and a thing connected with that subject.
The present simple forms of "to be"
are as follow:
3. First Sentences
English is a Subject-Verb-Object
(SVO) language - meaning that sentences are
made with the subject first, then the verb,
and finally the object. Using the above grammar
we can now make basic English sentences, for
- I am a teacher.
- She is happy.
- They are students.
Languages like French
and Chinese are also SVO languages, but other
languages are different. For example, Japanese,
Korean and Arabic are Subject-Object-Verb languages,
so you wouldn't say "She is happy",
you'd say "She happy is". If you speak
one of these languages, understanding this difference
can be very useful!
