The basic rules for remembering modal auxiliary verbs is to remember that they are used before other verbs to add meaning to the main verb. Modals can be used to express a number of different ideas such as: Obligation- I must go now, my family is expecting me. Possibility/Probability- I might go to a movie tomorrow. Permission- You may leave now. Ability- I can scuba dive. Advice- You should ask your tutor. Modal auxiliary verbs control not only the meaning of a sentence but they also control the power of that sentence. There are two voices used in English, the Active and the Passive. For both the active and the passive , the tense of the sentence always remains the same. In the passive voice the tense is indicated by the auxiliary verb 'be', for example: A crocodile will eat Henry- ( Henry will be eaten by a crocodile.) There are relative clauses as well. A relative clause is introduced by a relative pronoun: Who, which, that, whose, whom etc. There are two types of relative clauses, defining and non-defining. A defining relative clause makes clear which person or thing we are talking about and no commas are used. A non-defining relative clause is not essential to the meaning of the sentence, but using commas is important, for example- 'This shirt, Jessica gave me, is perfect'. There are three types of phrasal verbs: 1) Intransitive- He didn`t turn up (meaning that he didn`t arrive.) 2) Transitive separable- Frank took her on (meaning that Frank opposed her.) 3) Transitive inseparable- The client backed out of the deal ( meaning failing to keep a commitment.) Teachers should keep track of the phrasal verbs that have been taught and try to use them during uncontrolled practice/conversation. Choosing a particular subject can also make the process of learning phrasal verbs easier.
