Parts of Speech

Average: 3.1 (9 votes)

This lesson is designed to test how well you know the different parts of speech. E.g. verb, noun, adjective, adverb etc. In each of the following sentences, one word has been capitalised. Your job is to decide which part of speech this word is.

When you have finished, I strongly recommend that for further practise you have a go at a game called ‘Mad-libs’, where you complete a story by adding in your own words! Try this website
