Review Lesson 21


Hello! We have learned a lot in these last few lessons. Let us take a moment to review what we have learned.

First, we learned how to use the imperative, which is a grammatical mood or use of a verb in a certain way to achieve a result. The imperative is a mood in which we ask, tell, or beg someone to do something.

We form the imperative by stripping the "to" from the infinitive. The imperative form of "to be", then, is "be". If guests leave your house on an icy day, you might want to use the imperative form of "be" by saying, for example, "Be careful."

We learned that we can generally use the imperative with children, but using it with adults can seem impolite, so we generally soften it by at least adding the entreaty "please" or other polite words. But, when we are angry or afraid, we learned we often use the bare imperative.

We use the imperative tense when giving directions, as it is somewhat impersonal. When we include ourselves in a group command, we can say "Let's” plus the imperative tense, for example “Let’s go”.

Finally, we learned about the modal verbs “would” and “could”. We learned that the word "would" is a form of "will", and the word "could" is a form of "can".

We learned how to use the conditional tense of these verbs, and that these verbs to do not change conjugations. We can change real statements to unreal statements by using a modal verb in the conditional form, and we learned the difference between a hypothetical statement and a prediction.

We learned that we can change real statements to unreal statements by using a modal verb in the conditional form. For example, here is a real statement: "If I have money, I will go to the museum." This statement is a prediction of real events. Here is an unreal statement in which we change "will" to "would": "If I had money, I would go to the museum." This statement is a hypothetical statement. The speaker does not have money and is speaking only in a hypothetical way.  


Great! Now that you have reviewed each of these concepts, you have reinforced the knowledge you have learned thus far.
