English As A Second Language

One of the basic strategies to significantly increase your language skills is to listen as much as possible. What could you listen to? As the old saying goes, variety is the spice of life. It is all about listening as many subjects, topics, and sources as possible.

ESL. Writing

Learning to write correctly will help you for the rest of your life. It is quite complex and challenging. Spelling and grammar proofreading tools are very useful in writing English articles, essays, books, etc.

Present Simple

The present simple tense follows this structure/formula: Subject + Verb (the root of the verb), e.g., I get up at seven o'clock every day, we play tennis or I speak French.

Possessive forms

Showing possession in English looks easy, but it is challenging. Let's dive right into it.

Transitive and Intransitive Verbs.

Transitive verbs are action verbs that require or demand direct objects. The verb's action is transferred directly to the object.

Using articles I: a/an

Articles show whether we are talking about things that are known both to the speaker and to the listener (definitive), or that are not known to them both ("indefinite").

Using articles II: the.

The definite article ("the") is used before singular and plural nouns when the noun is specific or particular. It signals that the noun is definite, that is known to both the speaker and the listener, such as let's go to the cinema and he is the best dad in the world.

English plurals

The plurals of most nouns are formed by adding -s (kings, pianos, photos) or -es (churches, foxes, dishes) to the singular form. However, English is more complicated than that. It is full of exceptions and odd rules.

Position of Adverbs

An adverb is a word that modifies a verb (he writes terribly), adjective (he is quite right), another adverb (she sang very smoothly), or a whole sentence (Fortunately, I was ready for it). Different kinds of adverbs go in different positions in a sentence.

Abbreviations and apostrophes

Abbreviations are shortened forms of words or lengthy phrases. They are very useful because they save us time and space in our written communication. They are used in texting, tweeting, social media, email, and verbal communication in everyday life.
