The modal auxiliary verbs and the passive voice in detail, as well as a brief overview of phrasal verbs and relative clauses.
The basic rules of modals: they are “can, could, may, might, shall, should, will, would, must, have to, have got to, need to, needn't and ought to.” They are used before other verbs to add meaning to the main verb. Modal auxiliary verbs can also be used to express differing degrees of formality. Modal verbs don't change in form according to person. Modal verbs are followed by a verb in its base form. I’ve got some ideas on teaching modal verbs as well: Establishing rules and regulations for a hotel could provide a good opportunity for usage of modals of obligation, prohibition and permission “You can't have overnight guests,” etc.
Passive voice: “Auxiliary verb 'be' (as per table below) + past participle” is the form. The passive is most frequently used when it is not known, not important, or we don't want to say, exactly who performs an action. Some typical student errors are leaving the verb 'to be' out of the sentence, using the verb 'to be' in the wrong tense and overuse of ‘by'.
Relative Clauses: Independent clause, Dependent clause and Relative clause.
Phrasal Verbs: three basic types of phrasal verbs and some teaching ideas. “Choosing a particular subject can also make the process of learning phrasal verbs easier. For example, the subject could be driving, which could cover drop off, pull over, speed up, slow down, get in, bump into, catch up with, run over, keep up with, pull out, turn off, look out for, pull into, fill up, break down, run out of, pick up, etc.”
