2. Verb "to be"
"be" means to exist.
It is a linking verb, it links a subject and a thing connected with that subject.

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 Persian are Subject-Object-Verb languages, so you wouldn't say "She is happy", you'd say "She happy is"!
