In this week’s lesson we are going to review the use of the relative pronouns, focusing on “whose” and “whom”. We will also learn about some of the so-called “relative adverbs”, which are used to join clauses or sentences.
1) Let's start by watching a couple of videos.
Writing - Relative Clauses overview
Sentence Diagramming: The Relative Clause
2) Time to read some theory in English. Pay attention to the examples.
3) Now, let’s try this set of exercises.
4) Where is your language exchange? Use these examples from the exercises above as topics for a conversation. If you don’t have a language exchange yet, try www.verbling.com.
5) Don’t forget to learn new vocabulary. Extract all the words you don't know from this article from Newsweek Magazine titled “Clinton’s Cause”. Look the new words up in an English-English dictionary like this one.
6) Listen and read this story. You should learn all the vocabulary and practice pronunciation. And, for the most daring, read this article from Forbes.
7) Finally, write a story of about 200/250 words using as many sentences like those you have learnt in this unit. You can use examples from the exercises above.
If you have done all these exercises, then you've scored a 10! Well done!
