Review Lesson 3


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 make negative statement in English. This is done by adding the word “not” after the conjugated verb in any declarative statement. For example, we can change the declarative statement “I am hungry” into a negative statement by adding the word “not”, and the sentence becomes “I am not hungry.” We also learned to use the word “not” to change a simple question from positive to negative. For example, the simple question “Are you hungry?” becomes “Are you not hungry?” We remember that changing the meaning from positive to negative does not necessarily change the meaning of the statement to the exact opposite.

Then, we learned the social titles in English. We learned that there are many social titles in English, and that most are used in formal settings, when addressing people for the first time or addressing a professional in a given field. We learned that social titles act in place of someone's first name, so we omit the use of social titles when using both first and last names. We learned that there are four common social titles: “Mister” is a formal male title for both married and unmarried men.“Ms.” is a formal female title that is used to address any woman in a formal way, especially when you are unsure if she is married or unmarried. “Missus” is a formal title for married females.“Miss” is a formal title for unmarried females and young girls. We also learned that common social titles are dropped if an academic or professional titles is used, and that we often refer to people by their occupation followed by their surname.

 

Then, we learned about the word “what”. We use the question word "what" to ask about places, things, and ideas. We learned that we can also use the word "what" to elicit a definition of a word. We learned that the question word "what" is used to identify grammatical subjects. For example, the subject of the sentence "The museum is big" is "the museum". The question word "what" would be used in a question to find out the answer to “What is big?” The answer would be “The museum”.


Finally, we learned to combine two related sentences with adjectives. We learned that two declarative sentences which give us information about the same subject of a sentence can be combined to create one sentence using two adjectives. When we combine the two sentences, the adjective that appears directly before the noun is used to differentiate the noun from others in its group, while the following adjective is used to provide more information about that noun. For example, in this example the word “beautiful” is used to differentiate “the woman” from all other women and the adjective “hungry” gives us more information about that specific woman. This sentence could also be constructed as “The hungry woman is beautiful.” This sentence has a slightly different meaning than the first sentence. In this example the word “hungry” is used to differentiate “the woman” from all other women and the adjective “beautiful” gives us more information about that specific woman. We also learned to combine two simple questions into one, which is exactly the same as combining two declarative statements into one in the manner that we have learned.

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