This unit started by looking at the grammar of modal auxiliary verbs such as can, could, may and shoul.
These are used before other verbs to add expressions of obligation, possibility, permission/prohibition, ability and advic.
Depending on the choice of verb, they can also express different levels of formality or strength of the sentenc.
The passive voice is used when the focus is being taken off the agent, sometimes the agent is not even mentione.
The passive voice uses only transitive verbs, that can affect objects, not intransitive one.
It uses an auxiliary verb for 'be' and a past participl.
To teach the passive voice students could carry out a matching activity to match active and passive sentences, or students could be asked to prepare a quiz using the passive voice to write the question.
Relative clauses contain a subject and a ver.
There are three type.
Independent clauses are complete sentences while dependent clauses are not and must be connected to an independent clause to be understandabl.
There are also relative clauses which are dependent clauses that modify noun.
They can describe, identify or give further informatio.
They often include relative pronouns such as who, which, that and whos.
There are two types of relative clause - defining and non-definin.
Defining relative clauses add essential information to the sentence, such as identifying which person is being reference.
Non-defining relative clauses provide non-essential, extra information and use commas to distinguish this from defining relative clause.
Phrasal verbs are verbs with more than one word - a verb and one or two particles (either a preposition, adverb or both.
There are three type.
THe first is intransitive - these cannot be followed by an object - he didn't get bette.
The second type are transitive separable phrasal verb.
When using an object pronoun it can only come between the verb and particle, not after, however when using an object noun it can come either between the verb and particle or after the particl.
Finally transitive inseparable phrasal verbs use either an object phrase or object pronoun that comes after the particl.
One example is 'she passed on the disease' as the object phrase 'the disease' comes after the particle 'on.
The particle can either be one word or two (in which case it is an adverb followed by a preposition.
Understanding this concept can be very hard for students as the addition of a particle changes the meaning of the ver.
