You are given a block of text which explains the theory of this concept.
Once you have read the theory, do the exercises given below to test how well you have understood the ideas.
How to do the Exercises:
You are given a set of words.
You are also given some sentences with input boxes, and you are required to use the words to complete the sentences correctly.
You can put your chosen word into the input box by first clicking on the word and then in the input box.
The word will appear in the input box.
If it is correct, it will go green, and if not, it will go red.
INCORRECT TIME ELEMENT POSITIONING
In English, the best place to put the time element is at the end of a sentence:
- I will see you TOMORROW.(correct)
- I will TOMORROW see you. (incorrect)
I TOMORROW will see you. (incorrect)
The safest structure a learner could use is:
SUBJECT + VERB + OBJECT + THE REST.
I + bought + (a hat for my sister) + (in London yesterday.)
Note 1: The OBJECT here has 2 parts:
- Direct object - (a hat)
- Indirect object - (for my sister)
Note 2: THE REST function as adverbs:
- In London - adverb of place.
- Yesterday - adverb of time.
