Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/Losangelesenglishschool ________________________________________ The indefinite articles "a" and "an" are used with singular countable nouns when we mention something or someone for the first time. "A" is used before consonants and "an" - before vowels. We use "the" if it's clear for a listener what thing or person we talk about. We don't use an article with the names of cities or countries. But we say the USA. (We use "the" with the names of countries which have the words like states, republic, kingdom, or union) New York is a city. (a + noun) New York is big.(adjective) New York is a big city. (a + adjective + noun) He has an umbrella. (an + noun which starts with the vowel "u") The umbrella is blue. (the + noun cause we know what umbrella we mean) He has a blue umbrella. (a + adjective which begins with the consonant "b" + noun) #NOUNS#ARTICLES#ADJECTIVES#englishlesson#learnenglishonline#English#learnenglish#studyenglish#businessenglish#englishonskype#englishonline#englishvocabulary#pronunciation English courses for adults and young adult learners "Los Angeles English School".

Grammar: Using THE with common and abstract nouns
 
10:08
An abstract noun is a word that means a general concept or idea, like "life" or "friendship". We can use "the" with common nouns, as in "the sky is blue". But can we use "the" with abstract nouns? For example, would you say "happiness is important" or "the happiness is important"? If you are not sure, watch this lesson to learn when to use "the" with general and abstract nouns. Don't forget to take the quiz afterwards to test your understanding! http://www.engvid.com/grammar-the-common-abstract-nouns/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. Many English learners have trouble deciding when to use "the" or no "the", so I understand that problem, I know it can be a little bit confusing, but I believe that by the end of this lesson, you're going to find it much easier. Okay? So let's start with a little quiz first to see where you stand regarding that word "the". So, let's look at this first example. Should you say: "Life is beautiful." or "The life is beautiful."? Okay. Think about it. Decide. Another one: "Friendship is precious." or "The friendship is precious."? Which one is right? Think for yourself. We'll do one more, and then I'll give you the answers. "Happiness is important." or "The happiness is important."? Which one is correct? Do you know? How do you know? How do you decide which one is right? I'll tell you. When we're talking about something which is a general concept or idea, then we do not use "the". Okay? For example, let's take the first one. "Life is beautiful." Now, life is a general concept, so we do not need "the". So, this is the correct answer. All right? Not this. "Life is beautiful." Because life is a general idea, a general concept. Okay? We're not talking about anything specific. If we say: "The life of wise people is beautiful." that is something specific, and then we would be correct to say: "The life". Okay? But if we're just talking in general, then no "the". Let's look at the next example. "Friendship is precious." Again, friendship is a general idea or a general concept, so this is correct. Okay? In this example, this one was wrong. But if I said, for example: "The friendship between those two children is precious." then that would be fine, because now I'm specifying which friendship. Right? The friendship between those two children, so then it becomes specific, and then we would use "the". But in this example, this is correct. Okay? Just like this was, and this is wrong, because this is a general idea. Okay? Next one: "Happiness is important." By now you know, again, happiness is a general idea, a general concept, so this is correct. In this example, it would be wrong to say: "The happiness", because: The happiness of what? So, if we say: "The happiness of my family is important." that's fine. That's very good. That would be a perfect sentence. But in this case, we cannot say: "The happiness is important." because we didn't specify which happiness. Okay? So, in this case, that's wrong, and this is correct. Okay? Now, the same principle applies to these. See if you can figure it out. Okay? "I want to make money." or "I want to make the money."? Which one do you think is right? Are we speaking in general, or are we speaking specifically? Well, we are speaking in general right now, so this is correct, because we're just talking about money; we didn't say which money. I want to make money. Right? General idea. If I said, for example: "I want to make the money I need to pay my rent." that's specific, so then I could say: "the money", because I'm explaining after that which money. Okay? But in this example, no. Next one: "She wants to lose weight." or "She wants to lose the weight."? Is it general or is it specific? What do you think? It's still general. Good. By now you're getting really smart. "She wants to lose weight." is a general term. Right? We're just talking about weight in general; not any specific weight. But if I say: "She wants to lose the weight she put on during the holidays." that's specific, and then I need "the". Okay? But not in this example. So, last one here: "He needs to earn respect." or do we say: "He needs to earn the respect."? Is it general or is it specific? By now you know, you'll really know. It's general. Very good. Okay? Because we didn't talk about any specific respect; we're talking about respect in general. So: "He needs to earn respect." But if this was being used, it would be something like: "He needs to earn the respect of his peers." Peers are people your age. Okay? Or: "He needs to earn the respect of his employees." for example, or "of his parents". Then it becomes specific. Which respect? The respect of his parents, the respect of his employees. All right? So, if it was specific, then we could say "the", but when we're just talking in general, we don't need "the". "Life is beautiful.", "Friendship is precious.", "Happiness is important.", "I want to make money.", "She wants to lose weight.", "He needs to earn respect."
Learn ARTICLES are ADJECTIVES - Easy English Language
 
01:37
www.EnglishGrammarHelp.com The ADJECTIVES - A, AN, THE - are also called ARTICLES and NOUN MARKERS because they indicate the coming of a NOUN. They are the most common adjectives used in English and have their own special name - ARTICLES. They also signal the coming of a noun so they are often called NOUN MARKERS. A noun is sure to follow one of the articles A, AN, THE because a noun will follow to complete the thought A what? - a CAT; The what? - the CAT; An ? - An animal is going to eat the bird. The articles are also classified as definite and indefinite – the definite article THE indicates that one specific person, place, or thing (noun) is being referred to - The bird is being stalked by the cat. The indefinite articles A, AN can refer to any person, place, or thing within the larger group (a shoe, an orange). Use AN when the noun following begins with a vowel - an animal, an attack, an albatross. Want to be the smartest one in your class? Want people to listen when you speak and to be able to speak and write with confidence? Want to improve your understanding of foreign languages? Learn these skills the easy way.

How to use articles 'a', 'an', and 'the' in English?  - Basic English Grammar lesson
 
09:31
How to use articles 'a', 'an', and 'the' in English? - Basic English Grammar lesson English articles ("a", "an", and "the") come before nouns. They help to communicate which thing you're talking about, similar to words like "this", "my", and "all". And they're confusing to a lot of English learners. Articles are really, really hard! If your native language doesn't use articles, they can be really confusing. The truth is, you might never completely master articles. Most non-native English speakers don't, even know if they're quite fluent and have spoken English for a very long time. That's mostly OK. Mistakes with articles don't usually get in the way of communication. Your listeners or readers will usually be able to figure out what you mean by guessing whether you meant "a thing" or "the thing". So while you should try to improve your skill with articles, you shouldn't worry much about them. This video lesson by Niharika will clear your basic doubts for using articles correctly.

Articles (a, an, the) - Lesson 1 - 7 Rules For Using Articles Correctly - English Grammar
 
16:59
In this lesson, learn the 7 rules for using articles in English correctly. Also see - MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN ENGLISH & HOW TO AVOID THEM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dax90QyXgI&list=PLmwr9polMHwsR35rD9spEhjFUFa7QblF9 For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I will teach you the seven rules that you need to know for using articles in English correctly. Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’, and ‘the’. There is a final quiz at the end of the lesson for you to test your understanding. OK, the first rule is about where to use ‘a’ and where to use ‘an’. So rule number one is use ‘a’ before a consonant sound, and ‘an’ before a vowel sound. So in all of these words – you see that they start with a consonant sound. Cat starts with /k/, dog starts with /d/, boy with /b/, girl with /g/, house with /h/ and tree with /t/. So we say ‘a cat’, ‘a dog’, ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’, ‘a house’, ‘a tree’ etc. Notice that in natural speech, we don’t say ‘a’, we say ‘uh’ – like ‘a cat’. In this next set of words, you see that, they all start with a vowel sound – apple starts with /ae/, engineer starts with /e/, ice-cream with /ai/, old with /o/, umbrella with /uh/. So we say ‘an apple’, ‘an engineer’, ‘an ice-cream cone’, ‘an old womman’, ‘an umbrella’ and so on. In speech, we don’t say ‘an’, we say /ən/. Let’s do a small exercise. You see ten items on the screen. For each one, I want you to say if you would use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before it. Stop the video, think about it, then play the video again and check. OK here are the answers. Did you get them all right? I want to focus on items number seven to ten because these are a little tricky. Number seven is ‘a university’ because even though ‘university’ starts with the letter ‘u’ the first sound of the word is not a vowel sound. We don’t say /ooniversity/. We say /yoo-nə- vər-si-ty/ so that first sound is a /y/ sound, which a consonant sound, so we say ‘a university.’ Number eight is similar. The word ‘European’ starts with a /y/ sound, so ‘a European tour.’ In number nine, the spelling has an ‘h’ at the start but that ‘h’ is silent. We don’t say /hau-ər/, we say /au-ər/. The first sound is an /au/ sound which is a vowel sound, so this is ‘an hour’. In the same way, in number ten, we say MA. ‘M’ starts with an /e/ sound which is again a vowel sound, so ‘an MA in English’. OK let’s move on to rule number two: Use ‘a’ and ‘an’ ONLY with singular, countable nouns. We say that a noun is countable if we can count it – one, two, three, four etc. All of these words on the screen are countable. We can say one elephant, three cars, ten teachers, five hundred onions and so on. Now if you talk about one person or thing, like one elephant or one car, then that’s called a singular noun and if you say ten teachers or five hundred onions, those are called plural nouns. Uncountable nouns cannot be counted in this way. Nouns like water, sugar, milk, love, anger, knowledge are some examples. If you think about it, you cannot say “I drank four waters” or “I want eight milks”. To a person, you can say “I love you” but you can’t say “I have five loves for you” – that doesn’t make any sense. So these are all uncountable. Alright, so the rule is - you can only use ‘a’ and ‘an’ if you’re talking about one person or one thing. Let’s do another quick exercise. Here are ten items again. This time, you see ‘a’ or ‘an’ before the nouns, but some of these are wrong. They should NOT have ‘a’ or ‘an’ before them. Stop the video, identify the mistakes, then play the video again and check. OK, here are the answers. Number three is wrong because ‘shirts’ is a plural and you cannot use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before a plural noun. Number five is wrong because ‘happiness’ is uncountable, so again, ‘a’ or ‘an’ cannot be used there. The same goes for number six – water is uncountable. Number nine is wrong because ‘doctors’ is a plural – you can say ‘a doctor’ but not ‘a doctors’. And finally, in number ten, advice is an uncountable noun – so you cannot ask for ‘an advice’. Now a quick note here: the article ‘the’ can be used with all kinds of nouns – singular or plural countable nouns, and uncountable nouns. OK, so let’s now talk about how to choose between ‘a’ or ‘an’ and ‘the’. Here’s rule number three: Use ‘a’ or ‘an’ to talk about a person or thing unknown to your listener. And use ‘the’ to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, “My sister has two computers: a PC and a laptop. The PC is quite old but the laptop is brand new.” I say ‘a PC’ and ‘a laptop’ because that’s the first time I’m mentioning the two computers. That is, until this point, they are unknown to you, the listener.

Indefinite article in English - "a" and "an"
 
26:49
In this English lesson, you will learn how to use the indefinite article (a, an) Dans ce cours, vous allez apprendre l'article indéfini en anglais. “a”, “an” and “the” are articles. They are types of determiners and they modify nouns. “a” and “an” are indefinite articles. This means "not specific" so they refer to non-specific instances of a noun. The most common use is when it is the first time we refer to an instance of a noun. In this video lesson, I explain the grammar rules and all of the other situations of when to use indefinite articles. There are some grammar exercises at the end of the lesson.

They are the most common adjectives used in English and have their own special name - ARTICLES. They also signal the coming of a noun so they are often called NOUN MARKERS. A noun is sure to follow one of the articles because they are always adjectives and therefore a noun will follow to complete the thought. The articles are definite and indefinite – the definite article THE indicates that one specific person, place, or thing (one noun, the alligator) is being referred to. The indefinite articles A, AN can refer to any person, place, or thing within the larger group (a boat, an alligator).

Turn NOUNS & VERBS into ADJECTIVES!
 
06:39
http://www.engvid.com/ Want to expand your vocabulary using words you already know? Today I'll teach you to make nouns and verbs into adjectives! You will learn to form adjectives using past participles. By using this trick, you will improve your vocabulary and sound more fluent. Practice your skills with the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/turn-nouns-verbs-into-adjectives/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. My name's Ronnie. I'm going to teach you a little secret. It's not really a secret, but it's something that's kind of interesting and really helpful when you're studying grammar, and more importantly, speaking English. It's more magic than a secret. It's a crazy little magic that I'd like to teach you. I'm going to do some magic tricks. The magic trick is how to make a noun and/or a verb into an adjective. So, how we make adjectives, or how adjectives are born. Ah, the birth of an adjective. So, I'm going to go through some examples sentences that have a noun. We're going to change the noun-dunh, dunh, dunh, dunh-and going to use the sentence as a verb, and then magically, we're going to change this into an adjective. Are you ready? Are you excited? Not real-... Not real...? Not really? Come on, it's magic. I'm telling you, it'll be... Okay, yeah, let's go. So, if you look at my first sentence, okay? "There is a tear in my paper." So, "shwi", my paper. [Fake cries] "There's a tear in my paper." We're going to know that this word is a noun with some very simple tricks. Because we have the word "a", a's an article, so: "There is a tear in my paper." We know that this is a noun. The next one: "There is a stain on my pants." What were you doing? And the se-... Or the next one: "There are holes in my jeans." Now, we have to change this, because "holes" are plural, we have to use "are". We can't say: "There is a holes." because "a" is only for singular. But when we have plural, for example, "holes" or "pieces", we have to use "are" because "are" is plural. Let's just write that down here. So: "There are holes in my jeans." And, uh oh: "There are pieces"-again, this is plural-"missing from my teeth". True story. I have pieces missing from my teeth. It's a long story. I'm not going to get into it when we're doing the magic. So, what we're going to do is we're going to take our sentence, we're going to take our noun-do, do, do, do-and we're going to change it into a verb. The way that we do this is we're going to change the noun into actually the past tense of the verb. For example: "There is a tear in my paper." The verb is "tear" or "tore". So: "I tore my paper." Next one: "There is a stain on my pants." What we're going to do is we're going to take the word "stain" and make it past tense. We're going to say: "I stained my pants." Just curious as to how you stained your pants, but that's fine. "There are holes in my jeans." Now, we can't say: "I holeded my jeans", because "holes" we cannot change into a verb. We're going to use the verb "ripped", so you can say: "I ripped my jeans." Rip. And: "There are pieces missing from my teeth." We can't say: "There are pieceded", but we can say: "I chipped my teeth." So, "chipped" means there's a piece missing. So what we've done, very simply, is we've taken our noun, and we've used it as a verb. This is where the magic happens. This is where the adjective happens. To make a verb into an adjective, we're going to use what's called the past participle, or as I like to say, the PP of the verb. So, we have the infinitive or the base form, we have the past form, and then the third form or the past participle (the PP) of the verb. So all we're going to do is we're going to change the verb "tore" to "torn". So we're going to say: "My paper is torn." We know that this is an adjective because we used the verb "to be". Next one: "I stained my pants." The adjective of "stained", because it's an "ed" verb is going to stay the same. We're going to say: "My pants are stained." Next one, uh oh: "I ripped my jeans." We're going to say: "My jeans are ripped." And last one, uh oh: "I chipped my teeth." You're going to say instead: "My teeth are chipped." The magic happens when we take the verb, and we change it into the past participle. This is how we make a lot of adjectives in English. You take a verb, you change it to the past participle. It's difficult to remember all of the past participles, but there are ones that we normally use more than others, and especially when describing things. Another example would be: "I broke my arm." Oh no! So "broke" is the past tense of "break". "I broke my arm." To make it an adjective, do you know the past participle of "break"? Break, bro... Broken! Broken. So, you're going to say: "My arm is broken." And all we've done, here, is we've changed the verb into-dunh, dunh, dunh-dunh-an adjective. And that's the end of the magic show. Enjoy your grammar.

Articles -  a, an & the  -  English Grammar lesson
 
11:07
Articles - a, an & the - English Grammar lesson Take the quiz - http://www.learnex.in/articles-a-an-the/ The 3 articles in English are a, an and the. The learner has to decide noun-by-noun which one of the articles to use. In fact, there are 4 choices to make, because sometimes no article is necessary. Native-speakers, of course, use the articles correctly without thinking. English learners, on the other hand, need to have some guidelines for making the right choice - particularly those learners whose own language does not have articles. The guidelines that follow in this lesson should help ESL students to a basic understanding of English article use. The words a, an and the are known as articles. • We use an before words that begin with vowels (a,e,i,o,u). E.g. I found an orange boat. However there are few exceptions like the words honest and hour. In the words honest and hour the alphabet h is silent and therefore the letter o becomes the first alphabet of the word and hence we use the article an. E.g. Mr. Smith is an honest man. I will be with you in an hour. We use a before words that begin with consonants (all the letters of the alphabet except the vowels). E.g. Bumble is a baby elephant. • We use the before words that we have already spoken about. E.g. I bought an apple. The apple is very sweet.

Articles (a, an, the) | Learn English | Canguro English
 
17:16
Join Sandra and I as we study articles. Don't forget to read the notes below. See you in class! ***** In English there are two types of articles; definite and indefinite. Articles precede and describe nouns. THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE First, let's look at the indefinite article. There are two; a and an. Indefinite articles are used when when the subject of the noun is not specific, or to introduce something that is not known to the listener. We do not put a/an in front of plural nouns, they can only be used in front of singular nouns. For example; He always goes to a small place. (We don't know the place) We know an old woman. (We don't know the woman) I love red shoes! (Plural noun) A or an? A is used in front of consonant sounds, and an is used in front of vowel sounds. Usually, this is easy; if the word starts with a consonant, use a, if it starts with a vowel, use an, but remember that we are talking about pronunciation, and not spelling. This is important because sometimes we pronounce consonants as vowels and vice versa. For example; A dog An ambulance A UN decision (UN is pronounced "you-en", which starts with a consonant) An SOS message (SOS is pronounced "es-oh-es" which starts with a vowel) FIXED EXPRESSIONS WITH A/AN We also use a/an in expressions such as: Half an hour Twice a year a few €2 a litre A or one? You can use a/an or one in front of singular countable nouns to mean the same thing, for example: We are going to Canada for a year We are going to Canado for one year But it's important to remember that one is a number, and that a/an are articles. So we only use one when we want to emphasise the quantity, for example; I want one orange juice (not two!!) Are you staying only one night? (not more than one!!) THE DEFINITE ARTICLE Definite articles are used when the subject of the noun has been mentioned before. For example; The woman takes a small child. I sometimes see the child. I know a place. It is the big place. Definite articles are also used when the subject of the noun is already known to the listener. For example; I never see the small part. (We already know the part) The right eyes are always different. (We already know the eyes) As you can see, definite articles can be used in front of singular and plural nouns, and before consonants and vowels. THE ZERO ARTICLE In certain specific situations in English we don't use any article (called the zero article). Usually this is when we talk about concepts, rather than specific things, for example; I love to play sport (not the sport) They are afraid of heights (not the heights) Climate can affect your mood (not the climate) There are lots of other rules about the zero article, but they will be covered in other classes.

This, that, these, those - Demonstratives | English grammar
 
17:06
Learn how to use the words this, that, these and those with this English grammar lesson. These words are used as demonstrative adjectives and sometimes simply as demonstrative pronouns. We use "this" to refer to nouns (objects or people) in the singular which are close to the speaker and "these" for the plural. For nouns far from the speaker, "that" is used for the singular and those in the plural. For actions in the present or the near future, we use "this", for example, "This meal is nice" (during the meal). But for actions which have finished and in the past, we use "that". Example talking about a football match: "That match was great yesterday." We always use "this is" when introducing ourselves and other people. At the end of the English grammar lesson about the demonstratives, I give you an exercise to test your understanding.

Transcript: Hello and welcome back to our parts of speech series My name is Ganesh and in this lesson we're going to learn all about adjectives. In this lesson I will tell you what is an adjective and what are the two main types of adjectives and then we will focus on using adjectives correctly and how to avoid common mistakes that students make with them. We will look at three areas: ed and ing adjectives, comparatives and superlatives and the order of adjectives - that is when you have more than one adjective in a sentence, which should you put first second etc. So we'll talk about avoiding errors in these three areas. Before we start just remember if you have any questions at all you can ask me in the comments section below and I will talk to you there. OK so first of all what is an adjective? Well that's easy - an adjective is a word that gives information about a noun or pronoun. In grammar we say that an adjective modifies a noun or pronoun modify here means to change the noun or pronoun by giving more information about it. For example take a look at this sentence There are three small black wooden chairs in this room. Focus on the noun chairs and can you tell me which adjectives modify - that is give more information - about chairs? The adjectives are three, small, black and wooden. These adjectives answer questions like How many? What size? What color? What material? etc. Now in this example the adjectives occur before the noun but they can also appear after the noun or pronoun like in this example - The food was hot and delicious. Here the adjectives hot and delicious appear after the noun food and notice that we use the linking verb be - past tense was - to connect the noun and the adjectives. OK now that you know what an adjective is let's talk about the two types of adjectives in English There are two main types of adjectives in English - these are called determiners and descriptive adjectives. Or as I like to say less interesting and more interesting adjectives. I say that descriptive adjectives are more interesting because these are what we commonly think of as adjectives - words like beautiful, big, small, tall, short, blue, red etc. So what are determiners then? Well determiners are a small group of grammar words that act as adjectives. Words like my, our, your, his, her etc. are determiners When I say - That's my car, for example, the word my shows that I'm not talking about any car - I'm talking about one particular car - my car - so the word my acts as an adjective by giving information about the noun car. In the same way the words this, that, these and those also act as adjectives. Also the question words what, which and whose can be determiners. If I asked - Which team do you think will win the next match? - the word which asks for information about team. Team is a noun so which is an adjective. Quantity words like numbers and quantity expressions such as a few, some and many are determiners as well. And finally articles that is the words a, an and the are also considered adjectives because if I said - A window is broken - it could be any window but if I said - The window is broken - we both know which window I'm talking about so articles give us information about nouns and so they're also adjectives. Now all determiners are adjectives but we will discuss these in other lessons because each one of them is a big topic. In this lesson we're going to focus on the really interesting adjectives that is descriptive adjectives and we will look at how to avoid common errors with them. Now in English there are lots and lots of descriptive adjectives - some of them are formed from nouns, verbs and even other adjectives.

Parts of speech || Adjectives|| Articles || Degrees of comparison
 
19:08
Hi, welcome to khajasacademy. In this video, we are going to learn about adjectives of parts of speech. Adjectives are quality or quantity of a noun. Adjective explains or describes a noun in any sentence. However Adjective tells about size, colour, quality, quantity of a person or an animal or any other noun such as place or things. In this video we also discussed about Articles and Degrees of Comparison. A, An and The are called Articles. An is used for singular nouns with vowel sound and A is used for other singular nouns. The is an article used for a particular person or particular thing. Also used for some important words which are discussed in this video. Comparing two or more things or persons or any other nouns is called Degrees of Comparison. There are three degrees of Comparison. They are Positive Degree which explains quality of a noun. Comparative Degree which tells about comparing two nouns, and finally Superlative degree tells about super quality of entire class. Generally we use The before any superlative Degree Visit us at www.khajasacademy.com to download free english material.

Transcript: Hi and welcome to this series of lessons on the parts of speech My name is Ganesh and in this first lesson I'm going to give you a quick Introduction to the eight parts of speech. In the following lessons we'll learn more in detail about each part of speech. Before we start just remember if you have any questions at all you just have to let me know in the comments section below and I will talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a part of speech? Well a part of speech is just the name given to a word based on the job that it does in a sentence. Think of parts of speech as being kind of like job titles Just like a person can be a teacher or a doctor or a lawyer - a word can be a verb, an adjective, a noun etc depending on the job that it does in a sentence And these can be really useful to learn because when you're studying grammar you will come across terms like these, you will come across terms like nouns, verbs and adjectives, and if you know what they mean it can help you to speed up your study of grammar. Alright so how many parts of speech are there? There are eight parts of speech and we start by talking about the verb. We start with the verb because verbs are probably the most important words in the English language, and that is for two reasons: first every sentence in English must have a verb You cannot have sentences without verbs in English, and the second reason is that only verbs have tenses. I'm sure you know about past tense, present tense and future tense That's how we talk about different times and to do that we change the forms of verbs. So verbs are really important. So what does a verb do? Well a verb is a word that shows an action or a state - state means a situation. For example in the sentence Dylan plays tennis three times a week. In the sentence the verb is play because that's the action, and we're saying plays because for he,she and it we say plays - we add the 's' to the verb in the present tense, so "Dylan plays." In this next sentence "I am a teacher" - can you tell me which is the verb? The verb is 'am; - that's basically just the verb to be - but we say I am, you are, he is etc. so "I am a teacher" Now I want you to notice a very important difference between these two sentences. Notice that in the first sentence we are talking about a physical action because playing is something that we do physically. But in the second sentence we are not talking about any physical action - we're just saying "I am a teacher." We call that a state, that means a situation. So verbs can show actions or they can show states or situations. Those are the two types of verbs OK the next part of speech is the noun. A noun is the name given to a person, place, animal, thing, feeling or idea. For example here's a sentence with a lot of nouns - "Rosie went to Malta on vacation with her family last year." Can you identify all the nouns in the sentence? Well the first noun is Rosie - it's the name of a person. The second noun is Malta Malta is the name of a place. It's actually a beautiful small little island country in Europe. Malta is a place. The next noun is vacation. Vacation is the name given to a type of trip the people take, and the noun after that is family What's a family? A family is a group of people who are related - mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters etc. and the last noun in the sentence is year - a year is just 365 days or the time that it takes the earth to go around the Sun. Now of course nouns can also be animals like dogs or cats or a noun could be a thing like watch, pen, t-shirt etc. Or it could be a feeling such as love or anger Those are all nouns. What's a pronoun then? A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun - replaces means it takes the place of a noun. But you might ask - why should a pronoun do that? Well take a look at this sentence -

Learn English Grammar: Superlative Adjectives
 
17:08
Superlatives are the ultimate adjectives. They are used to express the supreme form of an adjective. For example, "the best" and "the most beautiful" are both superlative adjectives. Whether we use "the most" or the ending "-est" depends on the adjective itself. In this English grammar lesson, I will teach you the rules that apply to superlatives. There are, however, some exceptions to the rules that you need to know. Don't make the mistake of saying "the bestest" or "the most beautifulest". Watch this video and do the quiz to understand all the rules and their exceptions. https://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-superlative-adjectives/ TRANSCRIPT Doo-doo-doo-doo. Today I'm going to teach you about something that's super: Superlatives. Are you a bit confused about superlatives? Don't worry, I'm here to teach you. Superlatives. Now, understand I'm teaching you with adjectives, not adverbs, because that's a whole other lesson. So, superlatives as adjectives - they're the best. We don't say: "They're the goodest" for a reason. What we have to understand about superlatives are: There can be only one superlative. If you're looking at another grammar called comparative, there have to be two things to compare. For example, red and blue; purple and yellow. But with superlatives there's only one thing. And what we're telling you is that this one is number one. This one is the best. There's no other competition for this adjective. So, the way that we make superlatives, you're going to have two choices. You can either put: "the" plus your adjective plus "-est", or you can put: "the" plus "most" plus your adjective. So, how do you know which adjective will get "est" and which one will get "the most"? I'll tell you. We get to play a game. We get to do something very fun called counting syllables. First of all, we have to understand what a syllable is. A syllable is a vowel sound, or how long the word is. So, when we count syllables we have to be very careful, and we're only going to count the vowel sounds of the words; not the vowels because this gets confusing. Once we have counted the vowel sounds, we use "est" or "the most". So let's do some simple examples and I'll tell you our game. The first one: How many syllables or how many verb sounds...? Or vowel sounds do we have in the word "beautiful"? If we simply count the vowels, we've got one, two, three, four... Oo, we've got five vowels, but in English, "beautiful" is not five syllables, it's only three because if you have two or three vowels together, they're only going to make one vowel sound. So, in English, the word "beautiful" is only three syllables. "Beau-ti-ful". Okay? If we look at this word: "gentle", we don't say: "gentl-e", but because it's "le" together, this is going to make another syllable sound, so we say: "gentle". This one is two syllables, this one is three. What about this one? First of all, count the vowels. How many vowels are there? One, two. Because the vowels are separated with consonants, the vowels are not together, we can actually count these as two: "na-rrow". Two syllables. We have this word: "busy". Bzz, busy bee. "Busy", again, one syllable... Sorry, one vowel sound, one vowel sound is two. "Hungry", one and one, this is two. This one's easy, there's only one vowel, there's only one vowel sound, so it's going to be one syllable. "Happy", two vowels, two syllables. You understand? Try and do these ones. Now, be careful, in English if we have an "e" at the end of the word, we don't say it. So we don't say: "blu-e", we just say: "blue". So in this, how many syllables are there? How many vowel sounds? Two? One. So we just say: "blue", the "e" is silent. Okay? My favourite colour is two syllables: "pur-ple". Again, I told you if it ends in "le" we're going to actually put another syllable here. This is an exception to our vowel-counting rule. So we say: "purple". "Good", how many syllables? "Good" has two vowels together, but it only makes one sound. "Bad" has one. What about this one? "Lar..." We don't say in English: "larg-e", we say: "large". So, again, because the "e" is silent this only has one syllable. And a lot of people get confused, but there's only one. And this one, easy: "big". So, if you look at our words, the very first thing that we're going to do is we're going to count the syllables, we're going to count the vowel sounds. Three, two, one. Now, this is how we have to figure out: When do we use "est" and when do we use "the most"? This part is easy. If your word is small... So if your word has one syllable, it's always going to be "est". So, we say: "The bluest". "What? That's very strange. Ronnie, how can something be bluest?" Well, colour is an adjective, so you can say: "Wow, that's the bluest sky I've ever seen in my life. It's beautiful." We can use colours with this because colours are adjectives. […]

Learn about ARTICLES - A, AN, THE - ADJECTIVES (AKA - Noun Markers)  - Easy English Language
 
00:25
The ARTICLES - "A, AN, and THE" are ADJECTIVES and also called NOUN MARKERS. ADJECTIVES modify, limit, or define the nouns that follow them. There are only 3 ARTICLES in English - A, AN, and THE (where as there are 9 articles in Spanish!). These 3 little words are the most common words used in English! Because they are so prevalent, they are given their own name - ARTICLES. They also tell a reader or listener that there will be a noun following; therefore, they can be very helpful when someone is looking for the subject or object in a sentence. ARTICLES in English are also classified as definite (THE) and indefinite (A or AN). The definite article THE indicates that one specific person, place, or thing (noun) is being referred to - The man with the green hat is my father. The indefinite articles A or AN can refer to any person, place, or thing within the larger group - A man can wear a green hat. Adjectives answer the following questions: Which one?, What kind of?, How many? Want to be the smartest one in your class? Want people to listen when you speak and to be able to speak and write with confidence? Want to enhance your ability to learn other languages? Learn these skills the easy way. You can excel at writing - school assignments, computer programming and coding, personal and business communications, and more - by learning the basics of grammar the easy way. Master these skills and you will learn to think clearly and become a great communicator! GRAMMAR RULES!

08:53

13 Uses of 'THE' - Articles (a, an, the) - Lesson 2 - English Grammar

In this lesson, you will learn the 13 USES of THE. Also see - MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN ENGLISH & HOW TO AVOID THEM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dax90QyXgI&list=PLmwr9polMHwsR35rD9spEhjFUFa7QblF9 For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Welcome back. This is lesson two of my series on articles. If you haven’t seen the first lesson, you will find the link to the full playlist below. Alright, in this lesson, I will show you 13 uses of the definite article – ‘the’. As always, there’s a quiz at the end to test your understanding. Use number one is something we discussed in the previous lesson. This is also the most important use. Use 'the' to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, "Julie has a nine-year-old son. The boy wants to be an astronaut." Here, I first say 'a nine-year old son' because you don't know him yet. But once I have introduced him in the sentence, I then say 'The boy' because he is now known to you. Here's another example: "Can you answer the phone?" If I say this to you, then there's probably a phone ringing somewhere. So the phone is already known to you, and I say 'the phone'. And finally, "This is the watch that my sister gave me for my birthday." This example is a little different because if I stop with "This is the watch" - you will be confused because you don't know the watch. But then if I give you more information about the watch - it's the watch that my sister gave me for my birthday - so that way it becomes known to you. Let's now move on to use number two: use 'the' with unique things – that is, where there is only one of something. For example, we say ‘the sun’ (because there’s only one sun). Similarly, ‘the moon’, ‘the sky’, ‘the world’, ‘the universe’ and so on. Here are a couple of sentences: "Everyone knows that the sun rises in the east." and "Rahul has traveled all over the world." Some other things we consider unique are ‘the government’, 'the police', 'the Internet' and so on. As in these sentences: “The police are investigating a murder in our neighborhood.” and “Almost everybody uses the Internet today.” OK the next use is with some words referring to nature or the environment in a general way. These are words such as the countryside (which means rural or village areas), the town, the mountains, the weather etc. For example, "My son enjoys spending time in the countryside." It means my son likes to spend time relaxing in rural areas. Here are a couple more sentences: "We're going to take a trip to the mountains." and "I love the weather in Los Angeles." Use number four is talking about objects of common experience like in the expressions that you see on the screen. We say that these are objects of common experience because we all experience these in our lives. Have a look at this example: "I met an interesting man at the park yesterday." You may not know which park but it doesn't matter - the park is common experience. In the same way "Did you read the newspaper this morning?" I don't care which newspaper you read, I just want to know if read one today. Here's another example: "Darren likes to sing in the shower." We also use 'the ' with some types of media (including the word 'media' itself) and also forms of entertainment. For example, "I don't listen to the radio a lot these days." or “Pooja is at the movies with her friends." Note that 'at the movies' means at a movie theatre. But it's important to note that TV doesn't work this way. You can use 'the' with TV if you mean a television set. Like "Will you help me move the TV?" But if you mean television as a medium, then you say 'on TV' - as in "I saw a documentary on TV today." Not 'on the TV'. It's just a crazy rule in English. Let's move on to use number five now. Use 'the' with some time expressions. You see these on the screen - we always use 'the' in these expressions. For example, "Kids hate getting up early in the morning.", "A friend of mine got married the day before yesterday." and "We love to go swimming in the summer." We also say ‘the past’, ‘the present’ and ‘the future’ probably because there's only one past, present and future. Like in this sentence: "We must learn our lessons from the past and work towards the future." 'The' is also found in time expressions like ‘the eighteenth century’, 'the 1960s' (or simply 'the 60s') and so on. For example, "This house was built by my grandfather in the sixties." Now you have to be a little careful with time expressions because there are many that should be used without articles. You see some of these on the screen. We will discuss these more in the next lesson when we talk about where to use no article. The next use is superlative forms. These are expressions like ‘the best’, ‘the worst’, ‘the biggest’, ‘the smallest’ and so on.

Basic English Grammar: Parts of Speech – noun, verb, adjective, pronoun, adverb...
 
20:06
In this video, I will go over the different parts of speech in English. We will be looking at the use of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs. You will also learn how to arrange them in a grammatically correct sentence. Also, I will teach you in what order to place the adjectives if you have more than one. For example, do you have a "big, white, excitable dog" or a "white, excitable, big dog"? Find out by watching this lesson and doing the quiz afterwards at https://www.engvid.com/basic-english-grammar-parts-of-speech/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. James from engVid. I would like to talk about something that will help you understand English, and it's two things. Number one are parts of speech. What are the parts of speech and how do you use them? The second is called syntax, which is a very complicated word for word order. Where do you put the words in a sentence? In some languages they have a different word order, some languages it doesn't really matter, but what my job today is, is to show you where the words go and: What do they basically mean-okay-in the parts of speech? As E said: "Words. Where do they go?" Now, if you're new to English or even if you're an intermediate student, sometimes this causes you problems. Right? You've heard the terms: "preposition", "determiner", "syntax", and you're like: "Oh, it's so complicated." Today's lesson will be simple. You can go over this again and again. It will help you understand and use English better. So I'm going to start off with the most basic part of parts of speech, and I want to start with the things part. Things. Not actions, but things. I am a person. My watch is a thing. Okay? An animal, a cat or a dog, or an apple, these are things. We call these things nouns, because nouns name people - Hi, I'm James; places - Toronto, Ontario; things - my watch; animals - a cat, meow; and food - an apple. Okay? These are nouns. Example: boy, dog, apple. Okay? Nouns name these things. But sometimes you don't want to keep using the same noun again and again. "James ate the apple and James walked his dog as James talked to his friend, Oliver, and then James..." It gets what we call repetitive and boring, and it also makes the sentences go really slow. And sometimes we want to use the noun in a different way. So in this case we introduce what's called pronouns. Pronouns can replace nouns in a sentence. So now you could say something like this: "James ate the apple and he walked his dog." Instead of: "James ate the apple and James walked his dog", we can use a pronoun to replace it and make it simpler. We still know we're talking about James. Now, we talked about word order or syntax. Let me explain this. In order to use a pronoun first you must use the noun. Okay? You introduce the noun and then you can replace it with a pronoun. That's why you see number one then number two. You cannot just start with a pronoun. If I started a sentence at the beginning: "He went to the store." The very first thing you will say to me is: "Who's he?" I go: "Oh, James went to the store and he bought the apples there." And you go: "Oh, now I know who he is." So, pronouns kind of number two because you have to actually introduce first with a noun, then you can replace it with a pronoun. Now, we have several types of pronouns. I'm just going to go over and show you a couple of them so you get an idea. Pronouns include: "I", "we", which are subject pronouns. Object pronouns when we're talking about something that's not us, but something on the other side that receives action, as a subject pronoun I do things. I run. Right? We eat dinner. We're talking to them. Now, when we say "them", you go: "What?" Well, they are receiving it and we call those object pronouns. Okay? So the most basic ones are subject and object pronouns. One is doing something, one is receiving. There are reflexive pronouns, like: "himself" where somebody is talking about themselves. "He built the house himself." So he's talking about him as an object, but reflecting it back to himself. We call it reflexive pronoun. Okay? There are others, but I'm not going to get into them right now because I want to keep this simple just so you know what the parts of speech are, and you can always come to engVid to come and see other lessons in which we go deeply into reflexive pronouns, object and subject pronouns. Okay? Cool. So we talked about how pronouns can replace nouns, and we're good with that. Yeah? So let's go to stage number three, because once you've replaced them, how do you know the difference between them? Apple, apple. I don't know. That's when we have adjectives. Adjectives. The word itself can be broken into two parts: "ject" and "ad". But remember... Do you remember when I said subject and object, and I gave you the example? I said, for instance: "I" is a subject pronoun. Right? Subject, yeah, I'm good at this.

Spanish Adjectives
 
07:17
If you've already gone through The Sexualization of Nouns, Plural Forms of Nouns and Definite & Indefinite Articles, this lesson will be very easy. In Spanish, you have to make the adjectives match the nouns they are describing. So, if the noun is singular masculine, the adjective has to be singular, masculine too. Luckily, the rules for changing the adjective from masculine to feminine and from singular to plural are pretty much the same as for the nouns. That's why this will be quite easy if you already have that down. Now, there are a couple tricky parts with adjectives. In this lesson, not only do I tell you the rules and exceptions to the rules for adjectives, but I go over those tricky parts to. Watch the video. Memorize the words at https://spanishdude.com/quickies/adjectives then do the Adjectives Worksheet--and you'll have this adjective thing down 100%. It's not difficult if you just focus for about 30-60 minutes. Then you'll never have to worry about it again.

Swedish Lesson – Articles [and adjectives] (Artiklar [och adjektiv])
 
00:35
A lesson of articles, and a little about adjectives, in Swedish.
ARTICLES Lecture 1  [ English Grammar ]
 
10:54
For assignments and Full Course (Free) An article is a word used to modify a noun, which is a person, place, object, or idea. Technically, an article is an adjective, which is any word that modifies a noun. Usually adjectives modify nouns through description, but articles are used instead to point out or refer to nouns. There are two different types of articles that we use in writing and conversation to point out or refer to a noun or group of nouns: definite and indefinite articles. Definite Article Let's begin by looking at the definite article. This article is the word 'the,' and it refers directly to a specific noun or groups of nouns. For example: the freckles on my face the alligator in the pond the breakfast burrito on my plate Each noun or group of nouns being referred to - in these cases freckles, alligator, and breakfast burrito - is direct and specific. Indefinite Articles Indefinite articles are the words 'a' and 'an.' Each of these articles is used to refer to a noun, but the noun being referred to is not a specific person, place, object, or idea. It can be any noun from a group of nouns. For example: a Mercedes from the car lot an event in history In each case, the noun is not specific. The Mercedes could be any Mercedes car available for purchase, and the event could be any event in the history of the world.

What is Adjectives | Degrees of Comparison
 
08:20
What are Adjectives Adjectives are words that describes Noun. Adjectives have three degree of comparison Positive, Comparitive and Superlative Now for understanding adjective, we need to revise what are Nouns. So, what exactly is a Noun. Noun is a word that contains : Person, Place, Thing or an Idea. Now what are adjectives, they describe nouns. For example. In case of Sachin. What are things or qualities that you think about sachin. If I say, Sachin is a Good Person, or Sachin is the best cricketer, or Sachin is a clever batsmen. Then, good, best and clever are the things that describes Sachin as a Person. In case of TajMahal, what are the things that you think about it. If I say, TajMahal is a beautiful place, or TajMahal is very old place, or Taj Mahal is built of white marble. Then, beautiful, old and white are things that describes taj mahal as a Place. In case of Ball, what are the quality or things you think about this ball. If I say, This is a colourful ball, or This ball has six colour or This is a big ball Then, colorful, six and big are the things that describes a ball as a Thing In case of Idea. What type of ideas or dreams you get. If I say, I got a great idea or I had a scary dream or I have a funny idea. Then, great, scary, funny are the things that describes an Idea or Dream. So, these are the twelve words that are actually describing nouns or you can say they are giving more information about nouns and so, they are called adjectives. Also, note that Nouns and Pronouns are technicaly same. Pronouns are just replacement for nouns. We have already discussed about them in our previous videos So we can say, adjectives are the words that describes nouns and pronouns both Now lets look into some sentence examples to make things clear. Ram is a tall person. Here, tall is a quality that describes ram. So, its an adjective This is a small ball. Here, with the help of small we get to know about the size of ball. So, its an adjective Shreya has five chocolates. Here, we get to know the quantity of chocolates shreya has using ‘five’. So, its an adjective Adjectives have three degree of comparison Positive, Comparitive and Superlative It is used when we need to compare things Positive degree of adjective is used to describe, not compare Comparative degree is used to comnpare two things and Superlative degree is used to compare more than two things Let me give you an example to make this degrees clear. Ram is a tall boy. Here tall is the adjective, and we are just describing ram, we are not comparing it with anyone. So, it’s a positive degree. Now lets another example, Shyam is taller than Ram. Here, taller is an adjective and we are comparing two person’s height. i.e, Shyam’s height with ram. So, it’s a comparative degree Divyesh is tallest among all. Here, tallest is an adjective and we are comparing three person’s height. So, it’s a superlative degree. Now lets go back to the chart, So, tall is a positive degree, taller is the comparative degree and tallest is the superlative degree.
