1 Welcome to English 2 When Actions Happen Names of Words Grammar is the system of a language. People sometimes describe grammar as the "rules" of a language; but in fact no language has rules*. If we use the word "rules", we suggest that somebody created the rules first and then spoke the language, like a new game. But languages did not start like that. Languages started by people making sounds which evolved into words, phrases and sentences. No commonly-spoken language is fixed. All languages change over time. What we call "grammar" is simply a reflection of a language at a particular time.Making QuestionsHow English Works

18 Sorry, this is wrong. This is not the correct rule for this sentence. Please go back and try again.
19 Excellent Work!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!Click on the button. Let’s go on to the next grammar lesson.
20 Correct: Tim has no time to work on his assignment. Language and CirclesWhen 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 hasn’t no time to do her homework.Learning through analogy and by exampleCorrect: Tim has no time to work on his assignment.
21 Remember you can make U-Turns in English, but you cannot make two in the same sentence. Quiz

25 Translation problemsWhen we learn a new language, we want to directly translate from our first language. Sometimes this works and other times it does not.Let’s study some examples.
26 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. Let’s see if you can correct the next set of examples.
