Question Tags preguntas que decimos al final de una oración (afirmativa o negativa) cuando queremos que nuestro interlocutor muestre acuerdo o desacuerdo, o bien para preguntar lo que no sabemos. Para formar la "question tag" utilizamos los verbos auxiliares (be, have, do, will, would, can could, etc…) y a continuación el pronombre personal sujeto. El auxiliar debe concordar con el verbo de la oración principal, es decir, si el verbo está en pasado, el auxiliar irá también en pasado. En oraciones afirmativas, la question tag va en negativa.
Question Tags exceptions Con Iam, hacemos la question tag,aren´t I? Cuando en la oración principal usamos palabras negativas como “nothing”, “no one”, “nobody”, “no” “never” “hardly” “scarcely” and “little” la question tag deberá ser afirmativa. Con “somebody” “anybody”, “nobody” “someone” “anyone”, “no-one”“everbody” “anyone”, la question tag llevará el auxiliar en plural y el pronombre sujeto "they", aunque en la oración el verbo esté en singular. Con el imperativo En negativo ponemos la question tag "will you"? Y la orden se convierte en una petición cortés: - Don't be late, will you? No llegues tarde, ¿vale? En afirmativo ponemos la question tag "won't you?", y la orden se convierte en invitación: -Have another piece of cake, won't you? Tómate otro trozo de pastel, ¿no?

Do and Make "Do" y "make" son dos verbos que se confunden frecuentemente en inglés. Ambos se pueden traducir como "hacer", pero hay algunas diferencias en su significado. En general, "do" considera más la acción, mientras que con "make" nos referimos más al resultado de la acción.
Do Se usa "do" para acciones, actividades, y trabajos. Se utiliza en un sentido amplio, como de "realizar". En general, estas acciones y actividades no producen un objeto físico. Ejemplos: do homework do a job do the dishes do housework do exercise Se utiliza "do" cuando hablamos de cosas en general, cuando no decimos exactamente qué actividad. En este sentido, se utiliza mucho con los pronombres indefinidos como "something", "anything", "nothing", etc. Ejemplos: What are you doing today? I'm not doing anything. (¿Qué haces hoy? No hago nada.) He's always doing nice things for his girlfriend. (Siempre hace cosas buenas para su novia.) Are you doing anything important right now? (¿Haces algo importante ahora mismo?)
Make Se utiliza "make" en el sentido de "fabricar", "elaborar" o "crear". Se usa para actividades en que se crea algo que se puede tocar, un objeto físico. Ejemplos: make breakfast/lunch/dinner make a dress make furniture

Zero Conditional When we talk about things that are generally or always true. We use: If/When/Unless + present form + present simple or imperative. Note that we are not talking about a specific event but something which is generally true. In the condition clause, we can use a variety of present forms. In the result clause, there can only be the present simple or imperative. Notice that 'unless' means the same as 'if not'.
Zero Conditional Examples: Unless he asks you politely, refuse to do any more work on the project. Unless prices are rising, it's not a good investment. Unless you've been there yourself, you don't really understand how fantastic it is. If you visit London, go on the London Eye. If unemployment is rising, people tend to stay in their present jobs. If you've done that, go and have a coffee. When you go on holiday, take plenty of sun cream. It'll be very hot. When I'm concentrating, please don't make so much noise. When I've finished an article, I always ask Kate to read it through.
Zero Conditional People (get) fat, if they (eat) junk food. If a person (practise) sports, he or she always (feel) good. If the sun (rise) high, it (become) very hot. Plants (die), if it (do) not rain. If children (not/get) enough sleep at night, they (get) tired all day.
Zero Conditional (I / wake up late / I / be late for work) ____________________________________ (my husband / cook / he / burn the food) ____________________________________ (Julie / not wear a hat / she / get sunstroke) ____________________________________ (children / not eat well / they / not be healthy) ____________________________________ (you / mix water and electricity / you / get a shock) ____________________________________ (I / feel good the next day / I / go to bed early) ____________________________________ (lots of people / come / Jenny / have a party) ____________________________________ (she / buy expensive clothes / she / go shopping) ____________________________________ (my daughter / pass her exams / she / work hard) ____________________________________ (David / be sick / he / drink milk) ____________________________________
First Conditional The first conditional has the present simple after 'if', then the future simple in the other clause:present simplefuture simple if + present simple,... will + infinitive It's used to talk about things which might happen in the future. Of course, we can't know what will happen in the future, but this describes possible things, which could easily come true. If it rains, I won't go to the park. If I study today, I'll go to the party tonight. If I have enough money, I'll buy some new shoes. She'll be late if the train is delayed. She'll miss the bus if she doesn't leave soon. If I see her, I'll tell her. Sometimes, we use shall, can, or may instead of will, for example: If you are good today, you can watch TV tonight.
First Conditional We will (pass) the examination if we study hard. If you (go) to see this film, you will have a good time. If he (play) sport, he will live longer. She (not be) an architect if she doesn’t go to university. They (ring) us if we give them our phone number. If we (not solve) the problem, we won’t get the prize. If we (not go) now, we (miss) the bus. _______________________________________ You (be) tired if you (not sleep). ________________________________________ If the Spanish team (get) to the final match, they (be) the World Champions. ___________________________________________________ If you (help) me, I (give) you a lot of money. _____________________________________________________ If we (sing) some carols, they (be) happy. ______________________________________________________

Second Conditional The second conditional uses the past simple after if, then 'would' and the infinitive:past simple if + past simple,...would + infinitive We can use 'were' instead of 'was' with 'I' and 'he/she/it'. An imaginary result in a situation that does not exist First, we can use it to talk about things in the future that are probably not going to be true. Maybe I'm imagining some dream for example. If I won the lottery, I would buy a big house.(I probably won't win the lottery) If I met the Queen of England, I would say hello. She would travel all over the world if she were rich. She would pass the exam if she ever studied.(She never studies, so this won't happen) Second, we can use it to talk about something in the present which is impossible, because it's not true. Is that clear? Have a look at the examples: If I had his number, I would call him. (I don't have his number now, so it's impossible for me to call him). If I were you, I wouldn't go out with that man. If I were president, I would put you in Jail

Second Conditional 1. If I won the lottery, 2. If I were a superhero, 3. If my parents were more understanding, 4. If I could travel anywhere in the world, 5. If I had time, Exchange information with a partner. What would you do if…..? What could you do if…?
Third Conditional Past perfect Past perfect after 'if' and then 'would have' and the Past participle in the second part of the sentence: if + past perfect,...would + have + past participle It talks about the past. It's used to describe a situation that didn't happen, and to imagine the result of this situation. If she had studied, she would have passed the exam (but, really we know she didn't study and so she didn't pass) If I hadn't eaten so much, I wouldn't have felt sick (but I did eat a lot, and so I did feel sick). If we had taken a taxi, we wouldn't have missed the plane She wouldn't have been tired if she had gone to bed earlier She would have become a teacher if she had gone to university He would have been on time for the interview if he had left the house at nine

Mixed conditionals Are those unreal conditional sentences whose time in the if-clause is different than the time in the main-clause. Let's first have a look at unreal conditional sentences: If she were shorter, she would be more attractive. I am busy next week. If I had time, I would come to your party. If they hadn't trained hard, they wouldn't have won. As you can see, they refer to the same time: the present, the future or the past. If we mix the sentences, we get mixed conditionals.
Mixed conditionals Past and Present If my father hadn't lost his keys, we wouldn't have to wait until he finds them. But my father lost his keys and therefore we have to wait until he finds them. If I had installed an anti-virus, my computer wouldn't be so slow now. But I didn't install an anti-virus and therefore my computer is so slow now. If our house had been broken into, we would be very sad. But our house wasn't broken into and we aren't sad. Past and Future If our house had been broken into, we would call the police. But our house wasn't broken into and we are not going to call police. If we had won the lottery last week, we would buy a new sofa today. But we didn't win the lottery and we are not going to buy a new sofa today.
Mixed Conditionals Present and Past If I were smarter, I would have graduated from Stanford. But I am not smarter and therefore I didn't graduate from Stanford. If Mary weren't a snob, she wouldn't have had so many parties this year. But Mary is a snob and therefore she had so many parties this year. Present and Future If you were more eloquent, you would become a politician. But I am not more eloquent and I won't become a politician. If you had more time, I would go to the cinema with you. But you don't have more time and I won't go to the cinema with you.

wish and If only There are three distinct types of I wish / if only sentences: Expressing a wish: Form: If only / I wish + simple past If only I knew how to use a computer. (I don’t know how to use a computer and I would like to learn how to use it) Use: To express a wish in the present or in the future. The simple past here is an unreal past. When you use the verb to be the form is “were”. Example: I wish I were a millionaire!
wish and If only Expressing regret: Form: If only / I wish + past perfect Example: If only I had woken up early. (I didn't wake up early and I missed my bus.) Use: To express a regret. The action is past.
wish and If only Complaining: Form: I wish / if only + would + verb Example: I wish you wouldn't arrive so late all the time (I'm annoyed because you always come late and I want you to arrive on time) Use: To complain about a behavior that you disapprove. Expressing impatience, annoyance or dissatisfaction with a present action. IF ONLY is used to make emphatic wishes: I can't restart the computer. If only I knew how to fix it! We are completely lost. If only you had brought your GPS!

Suffixes Suffix is a group of letters placed at the end of a word to make a new word. A suffix can make a new word in one of two ways: inflectional (grammatical): for example, changing singular to plural (dog > dogs), or changing present tense to past tense (walk > walked). In this case, the basic meaning of the word does not change. derivational (the new word has a new meaning, "derived" from the original word): for example, teach > teacher or care > careful
Inflectional suffixes Inflectional suffixes do not change the meaning of the original word. So in "Every day I walk to school" and "Yesterday I walked to school", the words walk and walked have the same basic meaning. In "I have one car" and "I have two cars", the basic meaning of the words car and cars is exactly the same. In these cases, the suffix is added simply for grammatical "correctness". Look at these examples: suffixgrammatical changeexample original word example suffixed word -sPluralDogDogs -enPlural (irregular)OxOxen -s3 rd person singular presentLikeHe likes -edPast tense Past participle WorkHe worked He has worked -enPast participle (irregular)EatHe has eaten -ingContinuous/progressiveSleepHe is sleeping -erComparativeBigBigger -estSuperlativeBigThe biggest
Derivational suffixes With derivational suffixes, the new word has a new meaning, and is usually a different part of speech. But the new meaning is related to the old meaning - it is "derived" from the old meaning. We can add more than one suffix, as in this example: derive (verb) + tion = derivation (noun) + al = derivational (adjective)

Suffixes Suffixes Spelling Rules RULE: 1 - When a word ends with a consonant and the suffix begins with a consonant, simply add the consonant with no spelling changes. enjoyment = enjoy + ment commitment = commit + ment doubtful = doubt + ful RULE: 2 - For most one syllable words ending in a single consonant you need to double the last letter when you add a suffix. run + ing = running sun + y = sunny fun + y = funny *** When the word ends with more than one consonant, the last letter is NOT doubled. jump + ing = jumping sing + ing = singing
Suffixes RULE: 3 - For words with more than one syllable and end with the letter"L" you must double the "L" when adding suffixes. travel + ing = travelling cancel + ed = cancelled RULE: 4 - For words stressed on the last syllable and ending with a singleconsonant, you need to double the last letter. prefer + ing = preferring begin + er = beginner *** For words where the stress isn't on the last syllable, then you do NOT need to double the last letter. benefit + ed = benefited offer + ing = offering
Suffixes ***OTHER SPELLING RULES- "Y" to "I" and the silent "E" When a word ends in a consonant plus "Y" then the "Y" is changed to "I" when you add the suffix. When adding the suffix 'ing' to a word ending in "Y" -- you keep the "Y." lonely + ness = loneliness happy + ness = happiness copy + ing = copying Silent "E" words end with a consonant and an "E." Words like love, like, and hope...you drop the "E" when you add the suffix. noise + y = noisy simple + y = simply
Prefixes A prefix is placed at the beginning of a word to modify or change its meaning.
