Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hello, everyone. And welcome to English grammar success. I'm Matthew. This class will teach you the essential parts The keys to English grammar to help you understand and speak English more confidently. Each lesson is focused on an important grammar topic that you can see in the title of each video. So choose on Lee the grammar you need or start from the beginning. Remember, Success in grammar equals success in English. Okay, let's get started. 2. The most important word in English - 'to be': Hello, everyone. And welcome to English grammar success Lesson one. The most important verb to be to be or not to be to be is important because number one we use it in many ways in English. We used to be to say names. I am Matthew to be him. We used to be to say origins. He is from China. We used to be to say nationalities. She is British and we used to be to say jobs. They are programmers. I am Matthew. He is from China. She is British. They are programmers to be is important number two because it changes Ah lot in English today we will only talk about the present ends. To be changes to is our and am. These aren't am they are the verb to be is we use with he she it and names for example. He is my friend. She is in the United Kingdom. It is my dog. Matthew is a teacher. Are we use with you? We and a you are listening to me. We are talking about to be they artwork and am we use with I. I am Matthew to be is important because number three it hides in contractions. This is very important because contractions are the most common way. The most normal way We talk in English. I'm He's she's They are. We are You are There are many contractions in English. These are the most common ones and the ones with to be I am is I and am together My Matthew , he's is he and is together. He's tall, She's she and is she is at work. They are is they? And are they're funny. We are we and our we're bored. You are is you and our You are talking clearly. Really thank you To be in the negative form You only need to add one word when we're talking in the negative form in English. The word is not I am not you with the contraction. I'm not you. You were not in my room. You aren't in my room. They're not teachers. They aren't teachers Here. We have two new contractions. We have one new contraction. Two times aren't This is our and not together. You aren't in my room. They aren't teachers. The phone is not on my bed. The phone isn't on my bed When we're using to be in the negative. We add the word Not I'm not you. You aren't Are and not You aren't in my room. They aren't teachers. The phone isn't on my bed. Yes, and no questions with to be the verb to be is at the start of the sentence. This is very different than languages like Spanish. For example. When we ask questions and we want a simple yes or no answer, we put to be at the start with our Are you from India? Are we from India? Are they from India? Remember these words Go with our Are you are we are they for the answers? We put our noun or pronoun you we and day right here. Are you from India? Maybe. Yes, you are. Maybe not. No, you are not. Yes, we are. No, we are not. Yes, they are. No, they're not. Four contractions. We don't use the contraction with the Yes, here in the answer. So are you from India? Yes, you are. No, we don't say that. You would say yes, you are. Are you from India? No, you aren't. No, you are not. Both of these are okay. They're good with is we use is with he She it in names for yes and no questions. Is he at the party? Yes, he is. Is she at the party? No, she is not. Is it at the party? Yes, it is. Is a name Is John at the party? No, he is not here is the same as before. We don't use the contraction in the simple Yes. Answer. We don't say yes, he's No. We could say yes. He's at the party. But we can't say in English. Yes, he's No. But for the no, we could say no, he isn't or no, he he's not. No, she's not know. It's not with the S. No Matthews not remember He she it The name goes with is you we and they go with our and finally am is with I in my on the Internet. Yes, I am. No. I am not the same rule as before. We can't used the contraction. I am at the end. We can say yes I am or No, I'm not. Here's some example. Questions. Am I talking fast? Is he at work? Is she hungry? Is the food good? Is the dog with you. Are you at home? Are they tired? Are we finished? You can see the verb to be AM is our We use it in many ways in English to talk about so many things. So it's a very, very important verb toe. Understand? Our next lesson. Next time we're going to talk about information questions with to be we're going to use the words who, what, where and when toe ask more information, questions. And also we're gonna talk about Possesses. I'll see you next time. 3. I vs. me - Subject and Object Pronouns: Hello, everyone, and welcome back to English grammar success. I'm Matthew. Lesson two Subject pronouns and object pronouns. Before we talk about the pronouns, let's review what a subject and an object is. A subject. Subjects do a thing. They act. For example, I saw a movie. I is the subject. I did a thing. I acted. John ate a pizza. John is the subject. John acted. John ate a pizza. Next, the object So objects are done to they receive in action in our sentences below. I saw a movie movie is the object Movie received the action. In the second sentence, John ate a pizza. Pizza was done to pizza. Received the action. I the subject. I saw a movie. I The subject movie is the object in John Ate a pizza. John acted John ate a pizza. Pizza would be the object. Okay, now let's talk about the topic today. Subjects pronouns and object pronouns. So remember, subject pronouns do a thing. They act the subject pronounce in English. Are I you? He she it we and they Some examples. I go to the store. We love summer. It is my phone. I we and it's would be our pronouns. Remember objects Pronouns are objects. They're done too. And they receive in action The object pronouns army you, him, her, it us and them Examples. This is me. Don't look at us. I want it. Another important thing is that object pronouns go after the verb. This is me. Don't look at house. I want its object pronouns Go after the verb subject Pronouns go before the verb I go We love it is one more thing The word you is the same in the subject pronoun and in the object pronoun Also it the subject pronoun It is the same as the object pronoun it It is my phone I want it So let's look at a few more examples So subject pronoun I go home at seven o'clock I is before the verb I go home at seven o'clock I acted We love summer We is before the verb love We love summer We did a thing we love summer for object pronounce This is me Remember object pronouns come after the verb. This is me. Don't look at us. They were done to us Received the action Don't look at us now Let's look at Ah Few sentences toe have both a subject pronoun and an object pronoun. I see you. I am the subject. I do a thing. I see you. You received the action. We can also flip the sentence and say you saw me now you would be our subject. You do in action. You saw me and I received the action. I the subject pronoun changes to the object pronoun me and you remember you is the same with the subject pregnant and the optic program. I see you. You saw me. Okay. Let's talk about a fume or important rules of how we use subject pronounce and object pronounce first he she they him, her and them. So he and him we use for men only. He is my brother. Do you know him? Remember thesis Object pronoun goes before the verb he is And the object pronoun him comes after the verb. Do you know him? She and her We used for women. She is my mother. Have you met her? They in them are used for both. Usually when we don't know if it's a man or a woman go to the police. They can help you if you talk to them, they comes before the verb. They can help you If you talk to them. You, they you and them you will use for general people. You can't smoke here. You would be for all people. You individually and also all people. You can't smoke here. Smoking is not allowed day and them are for organizations or for companies. They have great food. They would be the company, the restaurants, another example Ask them for a discount. Them would be the company. Finally we have it. Remember it as the subject pronoun is the same as the object pronoun it we can use for ourself. Hi, it's Matthew If I make a phone call Oh, hello. It's Matthew. It is me. But it can also be other people. Who is that? Oh, it's my friend Maria. It's would be the friend or Hello? Who is it again? If we're on the phone and I answered the phone. Hello? Who is it? Okay, so these were our general rules for how we use subject and object pronouns. And I will see you next time on English grammar success 4. my vs. mine - Possessive Pronouns: Hello, everyone, and welcome to English grammar success. I'm Matthew. Lesson three Possessive Pronouns. Today we will talk about what our possessive and the two groups of possessive pronouns, the ones that acts like adjectives and the possessive pronouns that act like noun. So first we need to review What is it now? And what's an adjective now? Does a person a place or a thing? Doctors work hard. Doctor is a person, so it's a noun. Doctor is also a subject. If you remember last class doctors do they act? Doctors work hard. Announce can also be the object she likes. Tea T is an object. It receives the action. She likes tea. He is a thing in is a noun. Adjectives. They describe a noun. They modify or change it. It's a blue cup. The man that man is tall Blue describes the cup Blue is the color of the cup. It's a blue cup. Tall describes the man. That man is tall. Okay, now what are possessive, possessive are the things you have. They show ownership example. This is my picture. This is my picture. My is the possessive. I have it. I own it. This is my beautiful picture in a question. Is this your picture? Your is the possessive. Do you have it? Do you own this picture? No. No, it isn't. Okay. So, possessive pronoun types there are two types number one possessive pronouns that act like adjectives. My your his her It there are and possessive pronouns that acts like mountains. Mine, yours, His hers It's theirs. Ours. One important thing. His does not change my changes to mine Your to yours, Her toe hers it to its there to theirs are toe ours. We usually at s to make it a noun type, but his is the same. Okay, now let's talk about how to use them and how they're different First, Possessive like addict ibs. Remember, This is our group sentence one. Tim is my friend. My describes the friend. He's my friend. Is this your phone? Your describes the phone. It's an adjective. Is this Do you have the phone? Do you own the phone? Are these his keys? His acts like an adjective it describes are now keys. Are these his keys? Our house is whites. Do you own? Do you have the house? Okay. Now let's change the sentence from my to mine from a possessive like an adjective My to the possessive like a noun. Here's our group the same sentence but changed with the possessive looking down Tim is a friend of mine. Is this your phone? We can change. Teoh, Is this yours? Yours is now a noun. It's not describing another now it is the now Is this yours? Are these his keys? We can change to our these hiss And finally ours is the White House. Our possessive our possessive is here Are acting like noun is in the sentence. They don't describe other now owns They are the noun. One more important thing. We do not use apostrophes with possessive pronouns. We do not use these apostrophes this It's a little line here Your apostrophe s No do not do this in English. We say yours. Is this yours? We don't put the little apostrophe here. Hers? No apostrophe there No apostrophe. With our possesses year, we only put the s at the end. Okay, so our last two classes We talked about our two different kinds of pronouns are subject and object pronounce. And today we talked about our two different possessive pronouns are adjective, possessive pronouns and our noun, possessive pronouns. Next class we're going to use all of these together and the verb to be to talk about a lot of different things, and I will see you next time. 5. Ask about anything! - Information Questions: Hello, everyone. And welcome to English grammar success. I'm Matthew. Lesson four Information, questions, questions that used wh words These questions We used to talk about anything in English. What? Our information Questions. They aren't. They are not? Yes, and no questions. They ask for different types of information. Not simple, yes and no answers. And they're questions that used W h words. Ok, but what are wh words? These? These are the wh words words with wh who we use for people. What for things. Where? For places. When? For time. Why? For reasons how for conditions or methods and twos for ownership examples. Who is he? What is his name? Where are our phones? This pronunciation is a little hard. Are are the same pronunciation in English Where our phones When is the party? Why is she at the meeting? How is the weather today? How our computers made. And whose drink is it? Let's compare how we make yes and no questions to information questions. So first the review from lesson one with yes and no questions. The verb is at the start of the sentence. Our this is our to be verb. Are you at work? are we at work? Are they at work? Is he is she is it is a name. And am I remember our isn't am These are the to be verbs, but for all yes and no questions in English. We put the verb at the start off the sentence for information questions. We put our w h word at the start before the verb right here. So remember, here are the wh words. And then to make the question we put the verb after. Who are you? Where are we? Or for is remember is goes with he she it name always these groups with to be How is he? Where is it like where's the phone or how am I? Oh, I'm very good. Thank you. So the only difference here between yes and no questions at information questions is the wh Word goes before our verb. Okay, let's look at some more examples with the question and the answer. So here are the wh words. Question. Who was he? Oh, beautiful. Well, that is me. What is this? This is my picture. This is my crazy picture. Where were you in that picture? I was at my old company. When is this picture from? This picture is from two years ago. Why are you talking fast? Because it's important for your listening comprehension. How is your family? They're good. Thanks for asking. How do you make these slides? Well, I make them on Google slides. And whose classes? This? It's our class. You see, with information. Questions are wh Word is the first word of the sentences and we use them to ask about a lot of information. Okay, here are some more tips. A few more important things to remember. Usually it's wh word plus our verb Plus are now for the question. Now this could be any verb. Not only to be not only is aren't am but where do you work or when can they come? So all of the verbs have the same rule wh word and the verb. But how and adjectives we use for measurements. Example How then an adjective. Usually it's wh word than a verb, but with how we can put an adjective here. When we talk about a measurement examples How tall is he? Oh, he is very tall. He is two meters tall. Or how long? How long is the meeting adjective long hair. Oh, the meeting is one hour or how far away is the beach? Oh, the beaches 40 kilometers away. One more Who's in whose have the same pronunciation but different meaning. This could be important here. So remember who's we use for ownership with our pronouns. It's mine or it's my phone. But who's would be? Who is like Who? She Okay, everyone. So that was our lesson on wh words and I will see you next time on English grammar success . 6. Talk about anything! - Demonstratives: Hello, everyone. And welcome back to English grammar success. I'm Matthew Lesson five Demonstrative. These are four words that will help you to talk about anything in English. This in that These and those. Okay, what are demonstrative? Their words that show or point to something else this we use for close things that for far things and this and that is for one, a singular thing. These are many and they're close and those are many or plural and are far away. These are the four demonstrative this and that for singular or one thing these and those for plural or many things This end these for close and that in those for far away things. Okay, demonstrative pronouns, thes air pronouns that points to a thing and they are alone. So an example This taste delicious. This is our demonstrative and it's a pronoun. We're saying this taste delicious and this is close. This taste delicious or look at that. Here's our noun or pronoun were saying, Look it that in that would be far away. And it's singular. One thing. Look at that. Let's do some more. Are these yours? These would be plural and close. These are these yours? Have you seen those in these examples? You see they are alone. There is no other noun. The noun is our demonstrative. This taste delicious. This is the now look at that. Are these yours? Have you seen those? And all of these are talking about distance. Things that are close or far this taste delicious. Close. Are these yours? Close? Look at that far. Have you seen those far away? But we can also use demonstrative to talk about something else. That was a good day. That was a good day. Or these are bad times in these sentences were describing tying. We're talking about something in time. In the past, that was a good day or in the present time. These are bad times. But we can also have demonstrated adjectives. They could be adjectives that describe a noun. The important is that they're not alone here. They're not alone. For example, this food taste delicious. It's not alone. We have the noun food here. This food, it tastes delicious or that rock It looks cool that in this are acting like adjectives there describing the noun, this food that rockets are these apples, apples are these Apple's yours. Have you seen those paintings? In all of these examples, the the noun comes after our demonstrative this food, that rocket thes apples, those paintings. And remember, these are all talking about distance things that are close, like food and apples or things that are far like the rocket and the paintings. When we're talking about time, we can say that day that day was good or these times are bad. Okay, a few more tips on demonstrators before we finish. Remember demonstrative pronouns Stand alone. The verb comes after this is interesting. This and then the verb after this is interesting. They are alone. No other now. But demonstrative adjectives don't stand alone. The noun is after This lesson is interesting. But one more thing One more really important thing we use all the time in English. They can be used for people to and we do talk about people often using this in vat. Who is that? Oh, that's my friend Victor. Another example. Hello? Who is this? Oh, this is Matthew speaking. So that was some important information on demonstrative and how we use them from demonstrative pronouns and demonstrative adjectives. And I will see you next time 7. Now is the time - Present Simple Tense: Hello, everyone. And welcome to English grammar success. I'm Matthew Lesson six the present Simple tense. This is the tens we used to talk about. What is happening now in this moment? But what are tenses? Tenses are changing verbs to talk about time in the past, the present and in the future, for example, we change the verb to be In the past I was at work to be changes toe waas in the present I am at work and in the future I will be at work. But today we're only going to talk about the present simple tents. Okay, we use This tends to talk about four things Number one permanent situations these air situations that don't change their permanent. For example, I am from the U. S. Or he is tall. These are things that don't change their permanent number two to talk about truths, things that are true. London is the capital of the United Kingdom. One plus one is two. These are true number three to talk about habits what we do. For example, I always wake up at seven. AM They see their family every weekend and number four these air short actions that happen now? For example, I take a deep breath. Horror. Um he shoots and scores talking about basketball. OK, but how do we change the verbs? How do we congregate in the president? Simple tents. So in the positive form we have first are to be verbs. Right eye goes with am you we and they with our he she it and names with hiss, for example. I am Matthew. I am on the phone. You are on a bike or she is happy or it is a happy face. OK, but for other regular verbs these air the groupings I you we And they go with the infinitive. The basic verb. For example. I work early or we want food. We want food now, but for he she it in name. We used the infinitive, the base verb plus the letter s at the end. So, for example, she lives in a house or James likes to take pictures. So with he she it to name. We use the verb with the letter s. But I you we and they Onley the infinitive, the base verb. But what about in the negative form? Well, it's one word. Remember It's the word not with our to be. I am not. We are not. He is not The not goes after the verb. I am not sad. We are not at work. It is not a boat. Now this is the same for the verb do now. Ah you we And they go with the verb do and the not again is after the verb. For example, I do not live in a house or we don't want to kowtow work on the weekend. No one wants to go to work in the weekend But he she it in name goes with does does. For example He does not live on a boat or James doesn't want coffee. So I you we and they with do or don't And he she it a name with does not or it doesn't now toe ask yes and no questions. The verb is the first word of the question. For example, do you like cats? The verb do is the first word of the question and our answer. We can say yes you do or no, they don't. We put our pronoun right here before the verb Now with he she it a name, remember they go with Does so for yes or no question. The verb does is at the start. Does he like tea? Yes, he does. Or does she like tea? No, she doesn't. And with our to be verb are groups are the same Argos with you? We and they is with he she it in a name and am with I. Now here are some important tips about the present Simple number one. Some verbs have different endings. These are irregular verbs. Now there are many irregular verbs, but some of the most useful or common would be go having study. So I you we and they are with the infinitive, the base verb. I go to work or we have fun. They study a lot, but he she it names go with, Goes with it. Yes, or have changes to have in study changes to studies. The why changes to an eye when it's at the end. Okay. Another tip for information. Questions like we talked about before. In less than five. We use wh words. Who What? Where, when, Why, how and whose. Now we put the information word at the start of the question for example, Who do you know at the party or where do they want to go? I you we and they are with the verb do. And then we put our second verb or the Maurin Formacion at the end. When do we go home now? With does remember goes with he she it in names like How does it work? Or why does she want to go to work on a Sunday? Because she is a little crazy and works very hard. Okay, so this was the present simple and some important tips for you. And I will see you next time on English grammar success. 8. Back then... - Past Simple Tense: Hello, everyone. And welcome again to English grammar success. I'm Matthew Lesson seven The past simple tents. Not now. But then in the past, we use This tends to talk about three situations. The first are past actions That happened one time I went to Europe last year. I met my girlfriend in July one time also past actions that happened many times. We use the past simple tents. I walked a lot in Europe many times or we had many dates at that time in July. And finally we use the past simple to talk about past actions that air different now. I lived in Europe in 2010. Now I don't It's different now. But in the past I lived in Europe in 2010 or I was single. Now let's compare the present simple versus the past. Simple with the verb to be. Let's look at the congregation how the verb changes. Remember in the present to be changes I with am you and they are he she it and names with is in the past there are not three changes on Lee to changes was and were I he she it in name Go with Waas I was at work, she was in the office. You were at the party. Now let's look at the negative form. Remember in the negative, we only add one word. It's the same here, but we add the word Not I am not you. You are not me. They are not us. In the past, it's the same here with the word Not I was not with you yesterday. We were not at the party. Let's look at other verbs. Let's compare, Present simple and past simple with regular verdes in the congregation. So remember in the present Ah, you. We and day go with the infinitive, the base verb. I work at a school we want to eat. But he she it a name. We have to add the letter s. It's the infinitive plus s. She lives in the city. Jessica likes chocolate now. In the past, it is easier. We put all of the pronouns together and it's the infinitive plus e d. I lived in a city last year. She wanted to go to the park. All of the pronouns with the infinitive plus e t for the regular birds. Some more examples. I worked in a restaurant. I lived in a house in the US I wanted a pet when I was a kid. So sad. I wanted a pet a dog or I like that light. Okay, let's look a ah past simple congregation in the negative form. So in the present, remember, I you we And they go with the verb. Do I Do not work or we can put do and not together in the contraction. Don't. They don't like that music in the present tense He she had a name goes with does, does not or together the contraction doesn't she doesn't live close to me. The phone doesn't work or Jessica doesn't want to go to the park today. Now it is easier in the past. In the past again, all the pronouns are together. I did not work yesterday or we can put Did not together in the contraction. Didn't he? Didn't want to go out last night or they didn't like that. That that basketball game. A few more examples. I did not work with you. They did not live in that house. She didn't want that car. Jessica didn't like that picture. Okay, let's talk about yes, and no questions how to ask them. So this is the same as the present tense verbs. The first word of the question we just use the past simple conjugation. Did you Did you have lunch? Did he have lunch? Did the dog did it have lunch? And remember, we put the pronoun in the middle here in the answer and the verb goes at the end in the answer. So did you have lunch? Yes, you did. Or No, you didn't.
