  • Vocabulary

    This lesson teaches Vocabulary, Nouns (people, places, things) Regular & Irregular Verbs, Identifiers (this/that/these/those), Prepositions. Nouns: We start with nouns which are a person, a place, or a thing. They are the essential vocabulary when you are talking about something or someone. Identifiers: This, that, these and those are identifiers that tell you which ones you want or which nouns you want. Prepositions: Prepositions give you even more information about the noun. A preposition tells you the direction, the location, or the time of a noun. Verbs regular & irregular: A verb, it gives you the action. It really tells you what is happening, what people are doing, where people are going.

  • Countable and Uncountable Nouns

    This lesson teaches Countable and Uncountable Nouns, Present Continuous Tense, Times, Dates & Numbers, Review of Consonants and Vowels, Review of Articles. A countable noun is anything that is large, you can count how many, or you can separate the items. We are going to look at these countable nouns, because they can have a singular or a plural including countable nouns with an es and s, ending and a consonant with a y at the end. A countable noun is something that is large, meaning you can see or identify the different ones. An uncountable noun is something that is too small to count. For example, water. Can you count water? You cannot. Water is an uncountable noun. We’ll look at the words we use to identify, how much or how many of a noun when the noun is uncountable. An article is a, an, or the. You always have to have an article when you are looking at singular nouns, countable or uncountable. From there we’ll talk about how much or how many and learn about numbers and dates and the days of the week. Finally we’ll make the present continuous tense with the verb “be” and look at “sentences”.

  • Review of Present Simple Tense

    In this lesson, we're going to look very closely at grammar. We'll look at the present simple tense and the present continuous tense and compare them. When specifically do we use each one and why? The present simple tense, we use for habits, routines, everyday, often. We make the present simple tense by adding an S or ES to the he, she or it, singular person. The present continuous tense, we use for something that is right now. We make the present continuous tense with the verb B plus the main verb ending in ING. Next we'll also look at possessive adjectives. This lesson will teach you how to show belonging to you.
