Review Lesson 4


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 about different types of weather. We first learned some nouns which describe weather patterns, and then we learned adjectives which describe how the weather is, using the verb “to be” in the present tense. We learned the simple question to ask when trying to find out about the weather, which is “How is the weather?” We learned that we may also ask “What is the weather like?” We also learned several ways to answer the question “How is the weather?” using adjectives formed out of a noun which describes the same weather pattern. We learned to simply at a -y to the end of the noun to form an adjective, such as with the noun “rain” and the adjective “rainy”. We also learned to ask if it is a specific type of weather where someone is by asking “Is it” followed by the verb describing the weather, followed by “where you are?” For example, if we want to find out if it is raining where someone is, we ask “Is it raining where you are?”

Then, we learned how to use the expressions “there is” and “there are”, which are used in declarative statements to indicate the existence of something. “There is” indicates that a single occurrence of the item exists, and “there are” indicates that more than one occurrence of the item exists. We learned the difference between using “there is” and “there are” in conjunction with definite articles, and using “there is” and “there are” in conjunction with indefinite articles. We also learned how to make a declarative statement that something does not exist, by adding the word “not” or “no” to the end of the expression. We learned that with the form using “no”, we do not need to use the indefinite article “a” or “an”.

 

Then, we learned how to use the conjunction “and”. Conjunctions are words which join together two words, two verbs, or two phrases and allow us to combine more information into a single sentence. We use the conjunction “and” to combine two sentences into one, such as “I like apples” and “I like bananas”, which may be combined using the conjunction “and” to form a single sentence “I like apples and bananas.” We also learned to use of the conjunction “and”  to join two verbs together in one sentence, such as “he runs” and “he jumps”, which may be combined together to form “He runs and jumps.” We also learned how to use the conjunction “and” to join together two complete sentences which have different subjects and verbs, such as in the following two sentences “Jennifer eats chicken” and “David eats vegetables”. By placing “and” between the two sentences, we form a single sentence “Jennifer eats chicken and David eats vegetables.”


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