Adjectives vs adverbs

grammar.jpg

Idioma: Anglès
Nivell: A2 / B1 (nivell 2 i 3)
Destresa: gramàtica

Objectives:
To learn how to use an adjective or and adverb depending on the sentence.

Task:
Read this explanation about adjectives and adverbs and try to fill in the gaps in the exercise.

Grammar:

We use adjectives and adverbs to qualify or limit the meaning of other words, but we can’t substitute an adverb for an adjective in a sentence. Each one has its own specific job to do.

• Adjectives describe a noun or a pronoun. They usually precede the noun or the pronoun that they modify.

E.g.: It is an interesting film.
Susan is a beautiful girl.

• Adverbs describe a verb, and adjective or other adverb. They tell us how an action was done. Many adverbs are formed by adding –ly to an adjective. Adverbs usually come after the subject or after the object.

E.g.: Mary quickly wrote the letter.
Mary wrote the letter quickly.

definite-vs-indefinite-articles-3.jpg

Idioma: anglès
Nivell: A2 / B1 (nivell 3 i 4)
Destresa: gramàtica

Objectives: the main goal of this activity is to learn the difference between definite and indefinite articles and to apply them correctly.

Task: check the exercise attached, label each noun C for countable or U for uncountable and fill in the blank with the correct definite or indefinite article.

Tips:

The is a definite article and is used to refer to uncountable nouns. => I saw the milk spill. (How many milks? This question doesn’t make sense because milk cannot be counted.)
A/an are indefinite articles and are used to refer to countable nouns. => I drank a glass of milk. (How many glasses? One? Two? Glasses can be counted.)
a + followed by a consonant
an + followed by a vowel
exception: a + followed by a constant sound => a European country (sounds like ‘yer-o-pi-an,’ i.e. begins with consonant ‘y’ sound)
