Some of the more complicated elements of English grammar include modals, passive voice, relative clauses, and phrasal verb.
Modals are auxiliary verbs that express ideas like obligation, prohibition, needs, possibilities, predictions, abilities, probabilities, permission, or advic.
These include words and phrases like \"can,\" \"might,\" \"ought to,\" and \"should no.
\" They also include partial modals like \"need t.
\" They have crossovers in usage, as wel.
For example, both \"can\" and \"could\" express ability or can be used for request.

Passive voice can only be used with transitive verb.
Perfect continuous forms are almost never used in passive voic.

Phrasal verbs are best taught as vocabulary items, because they use particles like prepositions in combinations which may bear little logic to a learne.
\"Bring up\" and \"bring down\" not only have different meanings, but are als used in different context.
It is good to introduce students to these gradually and in a non-structured setting, and to rely strongly on context when practicing them in a formal wa.
