Verbs! What is a verb?
Verbs! A verb is an action word (in English, begins with to) Examples: – To write – To look – To jump – To sing – To bat your eyes at….
Subjects! What is a subject, you may ask?
The subject of a verb is the person or thing which performs the action of that verb: Gordon travaille. Gordon is working. Mes parents habitent en Espagne. My parents live in Spain. La voiture ne veut pas démarrer. The car won't start.
Subject pronouns replace this person or thing: Il travaille. He is working. Ils habitent en Espagne. They live in Spain. Elle ne veut pas démarrer. It won't start.
