English Grammar Overview - Parts of Speech - Worksheet


Here are some tips on completing your parts of speech worksheet. When providing examples for each part of speech, five one-word answers will suffice for almost all of them. However, we'll need to clarify this for the gerunds. This is basically due to the fact that what you've written can either be used as the main verb in a sentence, that would be the present participle, or can be used as the gerund. For example the word "playing" wouldn't be enough, as it can be used both as the verb or the gerund. So, an example sentence such as "I like playing poker." would suffice rather than simply the word "playing".

Unit 16 covered conditionals and reported speech. I learned about zero conditional, first conditional, second conditional, mixed conditional, and the usages for each. It was a great review for me about the tenses in present and past form. I learned teaching ideas about how to present each, which will be of great use in the classroom, as it seems to me like it would be hard to teach concepts like these to speakers of a different language. I also learned about direct speech and reported speech and how to transition from one to the other.
