EXETER

As you already know I received a Comenius grant to participate in a European Union-funded programme in a course on English Literature in Exeter. This is the link to the website one of my colleagues created about our stay in the west of England. We weren’t  in the same course  so I didn’t do all the activities he explains.

What did you like most?

RELATIVE SENTENCES

[slideshare id=1064705&doc=RELATIVECLAUSES-090224114459-phpapp02]

Follow these steps to join sentences easily:

  1. THE WOMAN is my teacher’s wife. Tim is talking to HER
  2. Which element of the first sentence appears in the second sentence?  THE WOMAN, HER
  3.  Choose the correspondant relative pronoun ( who/that, which/that, where, when, whose).
  4. Is it a defining or non-defining relative clause?  It’s a defining because THE WOMAN is not enough to identify the person we are talking about.
  5. Add the relative pronoun and the relative sentence. THE WOMAN who/ that Tim is talking to
  6. Write the rest of the sentence The woman (who) Tim is talking to is my teacher´s wife
  7. REMEMBER: we can omit the relative pronoun because it´s not the subject!!

STUDY HARD!!
