Welcome to English 2 Names of Words How English Works When Actions Happen Making Questions
In English we need to ask many questions. It is simple to write the question. Follow the example. What is your name? My name is Sally. Where are you from? I am from Chicago. How old are you? I am 12 years old.
Listen and Write You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to do the following quiz. I will say four sentences and you write four questions. Are you ready? Click on the quiz and listen to the sentence. Quiz Answers
These are the questions that should have on your paper. 1. What do Frank and Mary do every day? 2. Who is their teacher? 3. What does Mary read? 4. What do the students do? Story
When actions happen We will learn what to call an action that happens today, happened yesterday or will happen tomorrow. These actions are called tenses: present, past and future. There will be a short quiz. Lets look at the examples.
When actions happen… Is the action happening NOW? = Present Today Mary goes to school. Did the action already happen? = Past Yesterday Mary went to school. Will the action happen tomorrow? = Future Tomorrow Mary will go to school.

The Story Frank and Mary have a nice school. Every day they do something new. Today they study animals. Mrs. Smith is their teacher. She is very nice. Mrs. Smith reads many stories to the students. The students like the stories, but today it is the students turn to read. Mary reads a funny story about cats. The class likes the cat story. The students clap. Frank and Mary are happy and they go home.
Please read the following examples. I like to study in the computer lab. You like to study in the cafeteria. He likes to study in the library. These sentences are all correct. Please go the next slide.
Which sentence is not correct? Please choose one from the list. A. I walk to the school. B. You walk to the class. C. She walk to the cafeteria
Fabulous, you have chosen the sentence with a mistake. This one is the incorrect sentence, but what grammar rule does the sentence follow? Subject/Verb agreement? Double negatives? Direct translation verb problems?
Sorry, that is wrong. Try and look at examples to see if you can understand the rules of grammar.
Sorry, this is wrong. This is not the correct rule for this sentence. Please go back and try again.
Excellent Work! Click on the button. Lets go on to the next grammar lesson. The third person singular in the present tense needs an s. So the problem was that the subject and verb did not agree. Good work!
Language and Circles When we make one U-turn, we go in the opposite direction. If we make two U-turns, then we go in the direction that we started. If we say two negatives in English, we are turning completely around. So, we should only have one negative word in each sentence. Lets look at some examples. Incorrect: Mary hasnt no time to do her homework. Correct: Tim has no time to work on his assignment.
Remember you can make U-Turns in English, but you cannot make two in the same sentence. Quiz
Wonderful! Are you ready for the quiz? Now use what you learned! 1.I dont have no time to do my homework. 2. I dont have any time to do my homework. Which sentence is the correct?
Excellent Work! Lets go on to more to learn about translation problems.
This is NOT correct! Please go back and try again! Remember to count the negative words. There can only be ONE negative word in each sentence. Why dont you look at it again?
Translation problems When we learn a new language, we want to directly translate from our first language. Sometimes this works and other times it does not. Lets study some examples.
Direct Translation Here are the examples. Mark has ten years old. (age) Correction: Mark is ten years old. Bill takes coffee at noon. (to take food) Correction: Bill drinks coffee at noon. In these examples, the problem is that the verb is not used correctly. Lets see if you can correct the next set of examples.
