We use the possessive 's' to show that something belongs to someone or something. For example:
"That is Jennifer's dress" means the dress belongs to Jennifer.
Remember: If the person the thing belongs to ends in s we just add an apostrophe and do not add the s. For example:
"That is Carlos' tie."
Can you match the adjectives to their opposites?:
The superlative is the greatest form of an adjective and is used when you are comparing more than one thing.
The subject performs the action expressed in the verb; the subject acts.
SVO: Subject + Verb + Object
e.g. John opens the door
Write sentences and questions with the present perfect. Write your sentences in the comments box. Use contractions:
Eg. he/ eat/ breakfast (-)
He hasn't eaten breakfast.
Time for a review of ever and never.
Ever means 'at any time'and is used in questions.
Use ever with nothing, nobody for things that haven not happened before. "Nobody has ever seen me dance!"
Ever is also used with 'the first time' for first experiences. "This is the first time I've ever been abroad."
Use never when you have not had an experience: "I have never been to France."
Some adjectives are followed by a preposition. It can be confusing for English learners because there are no rules to help you remember which prepositions are used with which adjectives. The best way to learn is through practice.
The following seven adjectives are all used with the preposition of.
Example: The letter I wrote was full of mistakes.
How much do you remember about forming active and passive sentences?
If you're unsure, have a look at this lesson before you try to answer the questions below:
Remember: Is the action being done by someone or is an action being done to something? If someone is doing the action, use the active voice and if an action is being done to something use the passive! Good luck!

The word get has many different meanings in English, such as 'receive'. However, another very common meaning is also 'become'.
For example: “I’m getting cold” means the same as “I’m becoming cold”
The only real difference is that get is more informal and popular to use.
The structure is: GET + ADJECTIVE.
