Lesson One

Simple Sentences

write by hand

A simple sentence has a subject and a verb and completes a thought.

For example:

She went to the store. (subject = she / verb = went)

However, some people choose not to use a subject, as in this example:

Question: Where did she go?

Answer: Went to the store.

"Went to the store," is not good English. If you want your English to improve, avoid making this kind of mistake. Always try to use a subject and a verb when making a sentence. In this exercise you can practice identifying subjects and verbs in sentences.

Starting with simple sentences in this level, we will study sentence structure and if you go through all of the lessons in order, hopefully, your writing and speaking will get better.


Here are some examples:

She's afraid of spiders.


She loves her baby.

baby and mother

He's sitting on the ground.


The bridge fell down.


The vacuum cleaner

is working.

He eats rice with chopsticks.


To improve your writing, try to keep your sentences short like the ones shown above. Until you become a better writer, this is a good approach because you'll have more control over what you want to say.


In the next lesson, we'll learn about clauses and phrases.
