English Grammar: How to use Commas

English Grammar: How to use Comma

7 Tips on How to Use Commas in English

1. The seven coordinating conjunctions: and, but, for, or, nor, so, yet demand a comma to separate an independent clause. Example:

“He climbed to the top of the mountain, but he still couldn’t see the sea.”

2. When we put an introductory phrase before a main clause, we use a comma. Example:

The Passive Voice

English Grammar Lesson: The Passive Voice

English Grammar: The Passive Voice

In English, the most important information always comes at the beginning of the sentence. The passive voice allows us to draw attention to the object of the verb rather than the agent (the “do-er” of the action). It is also a tool for when the agent is unknown, unimportant or obvious.

 

To construct the passive use the verb TO BE in the necessary tense and then add the PAST PARTICIPLE of the verb required.

Do you know how to kiss in English?

Strange Sounds in Different Languages

Sometimes when you’re are teaching English or learning English you discover strange things about different languages. This week in class Anne-Marie discovered that dogs make different noises in Arabic, Spanish, French and Italian! We then discovered other strange things… For example, in English the sound “smack” is what we hear when you hit someone in the face, but in French “smack” is the the sound of a kiss. Another strange one was that in English a pig says “oink” whereas in Hungarian a pig says “hunk”. A

Why should you learn a language?
