Start with "Tense" There are mainly three types of tense - past, present and future. Usually, verbs indicate the correct form of each tense. Besides learning tense, you should memorize some verbs too. Do not worry. It is interesting and easy to learn the necessary verbs. We use subject pronouns such as I, we, he she, they when the subject is doing an action. Usually, we use subject pronouns at the beginning of a sentence.
Example: I cannot remember the story. But we do not start a sentence with object pronouns such as me, us, him, her, them. Example: Call him. Active voice and passive voice Many English learning students get confused here. In active voice, the subject performs an action.
In passive voice, the subject and the object of a sentence swap to form the correct sentence. Incorrect: The cinema was gone to by me. Correct: The cinema was enjoyed by me. Prepositions A preposition defines the relationship between an object and its surroundings. Without the proper use of prepositions, your English will sound weird.
