When talking to a native English speaker, you will encounter the Zero Conditional. It’s used to speak of rules of games or science. But don’t panic, it’s easy to spot, Zero Conditionals always have the words “if” or “when” in them. For example, “If it gets below zero, water freezes”. In this sentence, and in all conditional sentences, “if” means in the event that A happens, B will follow. By saying this, the speaker is expressing that “below zero” = “freeze”続きを読む
A phrasal verb, such as “get away”, contains two or more words, a verb along with other elements of language. While listening to a native English speaker, you will encounter one of these three Phrasal Verb linguistic structures (word orders):
Verb + Adverb (eg break down)
Verb + Preposition (eg see to)
Verb + Adverb + Preposition (eg look down on)
The Adverbs related to these structures (syntaxes) are referred to as Adverbs of Manner. They are always placed after the Verb.
A few common examples of the Adverb + Verb structure are speaking softly, did well, and get away (the subject of today’s lesson).続きを読む
