Worksheets focusing on the topic of complex sentences. Students are required to expand on a sentence by using the word in the brackets. This is to add more detail and depth to their writing.
Previous knowledge of conjunctions are required to complete these sentences, however they can be taught it given a detailed example and explained what is required of them.
Importance of Grammar
Each sentence is more than a pile of words that is jumbled up! The most important element of English language studies is grammar.
Grammar is the key to speaking English fluently and confidently when spoken correctly. Knowing the grammar concepts will help speakers avoid errors that can make their English sound strange to native speakers. Grammar shows diligence and an eye for detail.
Well spoken grammar doesn’t come naturally for second language speakers. For native speakers like myself, we have the benefits of learning the structures from a young age from listening. Learning grammar takes time and requires the student to practice it proactively to use it effectively. For young learners who are new to English, it is important that the teacher does the following;
- Be patient with the student. It won’t come naturally
- Explain the concept clearly and remind the student of how to use it effectively
- Always use the concept in an example, full sentences are best
- Be thorough with correction. Consistency is key
