We loved the book we read yesterday simple past tense.- auxiliary verbs.- I was born yesterday She could read in French when she was 9 Were you angry with him? Tom didn´t have to lend his books to her That might be true ** uncountable nouns.- Uncountable nouns are substances, concepts etc that we cannot divide into separate elements. We cannot "count" them. For example, we cannot count "milk". We can count "bottles of milk" or "litres of milk", but we cannot count "milk" itself. Here are some more uncountable nouns: music, art, love, happiness advice, information, news furniture, luggage rice, sugar, butter, water

8. electricity, gas, power money, currency We usually treat uncountable nouns as singular. We use a singular verb. For example: This news is very important. Your luggage looks heavy. We do not usually use the indefinite article a/an with uncountable nouns. We cannot say "an information" or "a music". But we can say a "something" of: a piece of news a bottle of water a grain of rice We can use some and any with uncountable nouns: I've got some money. Have you got any rice? We can use a little and much with uncountable nouns: I've got a little money. I haven't got much rice. GRAMMAR SYLLABUS ESL1.- (viii) some, any, no some, any, no some, any, no we use some and any before countable and uncountable nouns COUNTABLE NOUNS He´s got a book / some books Susan´s nephew hasn´t got any pencils Have your brothers got any mobiles? UNCOUNTABLE NOUNS I´ve got some luggage Tom and Anne haven´t got any luggage Has Martha got any equipment for the basketball match? Some is often used in questions which are requests (peticiones) or offers (ofrecimientos): Can you buy some crisps? Shall I buy some food? No means “not any” Our teacher has got no bags : Our teacher hasn´t got any bags

9. Somebody / anybody / nobody / everybody Somebody (alguien), nobody (nadie), everybody (todo el mundo) Something, not anything / nothing, anything Have I forgotten anything? We haven´t found anything There isn´t anybody here. There is nobody here Everything is okay Nobody is perfect Cf. Louise Hashemi, Grammar for PET (Cambridge) GRAMMAR SYLLABUS ESL 1.- (IX) future tense (going to future vs. will future) Going to or will When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use 'will'. The President will serve for four years. The boss won't be very happy. I'm sure you'll like her. If we are not so certain about the future, we use 'will' with expressions such as 'probably', 'possibly', 'I think', 'I hope'. I hope you'll visit me in my home one day. She'll probably be a great success. I'll possibly come but I may not get back in time. I think we'll get on well. If you are making a future prediction based on evidence in the present situation, use 'going to'. Look at the queue. We're not going to get in for hours. The traffic is terrible. We're going to miss our flight. Be careful! You're going to spill your coffee. At the moment of making a decision, use 'will'. Once you have made the decision, talk about it using 'going to'. *

11. La presentación de un verbo en inglés tiene tres elementos. Estos tres elementos se llaman: infinitivo, pasado y participio de pasado. Es importante recordar que son elementos o formas y no tiempos verbales. Para hacernos una idea de la diferencia entre forma y tiempo verbal, diremos que una forma del enunciado (por ejemplo, infinitivo) equivaldría a la rueda de una bicicleta en una tienda de bicicletas. Es algo inmóvil y estático. Lo mismo sucedería con el sillín o el manillar. Sin embargo, una vez que uno coge esa bicicleta y la pone a rodar entonces la rueda se vuelve útil y funcional. En el caso de la forma del infinitivo, el pasado o el participio ocurre algo similar y pasa a ser un tiempo verbal. To speak (infinitivo) spoke (pasado) spoken (participio de pasado) = hablar Si tomamos el infinitivo y le colocamos un pronombre personal de sujeto delante podremos conjugar un presente (o un futuro en el caso de anteponerle a esa forma WILL, por ejemplo). Estaremos tratando entonces con un tiempo verbal. I speak : yo hablo, you speak: tú hablas, she speaks: ella habla, we speak: nosotros hablamos I will speak: yo hablaré, you will speak: tú hablarás, she will speak: ella hablará En el caso de la forma del pasado SPOKE ocurrirá esto: I spoke: yo hablé /yo hablaba, you spoke: tú hablaste / tú hablabas, she spoke: él habló /él hablaba (aquí estaremos tratando de un tiempo verbal también) Con la forma del participio de pasado podremos conjugar el pretérito perfecto compuesto o Present Perfect tense I have spoken: yo he hablado , you have spoken: tú has hablado, she has spoken: ella ha hablado (y aquí también también estaremos tratando de un tiempo verbal) *

12. How to conjugate verbs in English 1/ class of verb (lexical verb [play, speak, write, understand]or auxiliary verb [do, be, have, can, could, must, will]) 2/ verbal tense (present, past, future) 3/ form (affirmative, negative, interrogative) For example: Conjugate the verb TO SPEAK (hablar) [lexical verb] in the present simple tense [verbal tense] negative [negative form] Translate one form into Spanish.- I do not speak You do not speak She does not speak- ella no habla We do not speak You do not speak They do not speak ** Conjugate the verb TO PLAY (jugar) [lexical verb] in the present simple tense [verbal tense] interrogative [interrogative form] Translate one form into Spanish.- Do I play? Do you play? Does she play? Do we play? Do you play? Do they play?- ¿juegan ellos? ** Affirmative formula for lexical verbs in the present simple tense S + VERB + S / ES + COMPLEMENTS Negative formula for lexical verbs in the present simple tense S + DO NOT / DOES NOT + VERB + COMPLEMENTS Interrogative formula for lexical verbs in the present simple tense DO / DOES + S + VERB + COMPLEMENTS +?
