Review Lesson 5


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 about the neuter pronoun “it” which refers to a wide range of places, things, and ideas. The neuter pronoun “it” may be used in place of any noun where the identity of the noun is already known by way of the context of the conversation , except for people. The neuter pronoun “it” may be used in place of any noun where the identity of the noun is already known by way of the context of the conversation. The use of “it” in English is extremely widespread and you will encounter its usage in every conversation you have.

Then, we learned about the use of nouns in English. Nouns are words which usually refer to a person, place, or thing. All of the objects which make up our universe are nouns. We looked at the use of nouns together with the conjugated form of the verb “to be” and an adjective which gives us more information about the noun to which it refers. For example, in the sentence “The park is big”, “park” is a noun because it denotes a place.

Then, we expanded on our knowledge of nouns by learning about the use of plural nouns. A singular noun refers to an individual noun while a plural noun refers to a noun representing more than one item. Most nouns in English are regular, so forming the plural form from the singular form is a simple matter of adding the letter “s” to the end of the noun.

Finally, we learned about the demonstratives “this”, “that”, “these”, and “those”. Demonstratives are words which distinguish nouns which are near the speaker from other nouns which are further away from the speaker. The demonstrative "this" is used to refer to one thing which is near the speaker. The demonstrative "that" is used to refer to one thing which is further away from the speaker. The demonstrative "these" is used to refer to more than one similar things which are near the speaker. The demonstrative "those" is used to refer to more than one similar things which are further away from the speaker. The locations of things in relation to the speaker are relative locations, and the determination of proximity can vary according to the circumstance.

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