Review Lesson 2


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

Firstly, we learned how to use adjectives. Adjectives are words which modify and give more information about nouns or pronouns. We also learned how to create declarative statements using the noun-conjugated form of the verb “to be”-adjective form, which we saw when we learned about the verb “to be”. We also learned that adjectives may be used in questions as well as declarative statements, allowing us to find out more information about people or things. For example, in the simple question “Are you happy?”, the adjective is “happy”.

Then, we learned about the English cardinal numbers from zero to ten. We learned that any of the numbers can be used as adjectives in place of an article. For example, instead of saying “I have a car”, we could say “I have one car”. It means the same thing, but rather than using an article, we are describing the amount of cars we have.

Then, we learned about the articles “the”, “a” and “an”. Articles are words that combine with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun, and may also specify the volume or numerical scope of that noun. The word “the” is a definite article and is used before nouns to refer to a particular instance of that noun. For example, in the sentence “the cat is black”, “the cat” is used to refer to a particular cat. We learned that the word “a” is an indefinite article that is used before singular nouns that refer to any member of a group. For example, in the sentence “a mouse likes cheese”, “a mouse” refers to mice in general and not to any particular mouse. We also learned that the indefinite article “an” is used before singular nouns that refer to any member of a group in exactly the same manner as the article “a”. “An” is used whenever the noun following the indefinite article begins with any of the letters “a”, “e”, “i”, “o”, “u”, and sometimes “h”. For example, in the sentence “an orange is delicious.” , “an orange” refers to any orange and not a particular individual orange.

Finally, we learned how to conjugate regular verbs in the present tense. Verbs are words that usually denote an action, but may occasionally denote an occurrence or a state of being. We learned that the infinitive form of a verb is the unconjugated form of a verb in the present tense with the word “to” in front of it, such as the infinitive verb “to talk”. We learned that all regular verbs conjugate with personal pronouns in exactly the same form, except for “he” and “she” which each have an “s” on the end of the verb, for example, “he talks” and “she talks”.

 

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