Review Lesson 1


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 English alphabet. We learned that there are twenty-six letters in the English alphabet and that it is based around the letters of the Latin alphabet. These letters make different sounds when they are placed together. You must memorize each of these letters because you will use them to create words – they are the building blocks of English conversation.

Next, we learned about English greetings. We learned the most common greetings, “hello”, “hi”, and the less formal “hey”. We learned to ask “how are you?” when greeting someone, and how to politely respond to the question by saying “I am fine, thank you”. We learned how to introduce people to one another. We also learned how to greet people depending on the time of day. In the morning, we say “good morning”, in the afternoon, we say “good afternoon”, and in the evening, we say “good evening”. To end the conversation, we learned to say “good-bye” or the less formal “bye”. We learned to end the conversation depending on the time of day - in the daytime, we could say “good day” in place of “good-bye”, and in the evening we could say “good night” in place of “good-bye”.

Then, we learned about English personal pronouns. Personal pronouns are words which refer to ourselves and the people around us without using names, and also allow us to refer to groups of people without having to name each person individually. The personal pronouns are: “I” which refers to ourselves, “you” which refers to the person or group we are speaking to, “he” which refers to a male individual, “she” which refers to a female individual, “we” which refers to a group of two or more people of which we are a part, and “they” which refers to a group of two or more people of which we are not a part.

Finally, we learned how to conjugate and use the verb “to be” in the present tense. We learned that conjugation means showing all the possible forms that a verb may take in a particular verb tense. The conjugation of the verb in the present to tense is “I am”, “you are”, “he is”, “she is”, “we are” and “they are”. You must memorize each of these conjugations because you will use them in every English conversation that you ever have. We also learned how to create declarative statements using the verb “to be”, such as the statement “I am hungry”. The verb “to be” is often used to make a statement about the current state of whomever the sentence's pronoun refers to. We learned that the basic structure of these declarative statements is always the same: pronoun-verb-description of state.

We also learned how to use the verb “to be” to form simple questions in the present tense by changing the order of the pronoun and the conjugated form of the verb “to be”.



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