Basic English Sentence Structure
When learning to speak English it’s important to learn is how to build a complete simple sentence. Everyone wants to be able to speak well; in a clear and concise manner. When communicating (as the speaker) it’s important that one gets the message across to the listener. In my experience I find that most of the time when someone is learning to speak English or any language for that matter; they tend to build fragmented sentences. Fragmented sentences lacks completeness, because the subject or object of the sentence is not described, explained or mentioned at all. A complete English sentence has a subject and a predicate/object. The ‘subject’ is the main idea/focus of the sentence. The ‘predicate’ says something about the subject, so in this case the subject is described here. If you can identify the verb, then you will be able to find the subject. For example: The crowd is angry. Now, that is an example of a basic English sentence and if you can identify the verb then you can locate the subject. The verb in the sentence above is ‘angry’. Now identify the subject by asking yourself , “What/whom is the verb describing?” In this case that would be… ‘the crowd’. As you can see, that was a pretty basic/simple English sentence to work with.
