Grammar Tip of the Week

Subject verb agreement.

Subject verb agreement is very important in English. When speaking in the present tenses, the subject and verb MUST agree on number.

For example, if the subject is singular the verb MUST also be singular.

Comics are a great way to improve vocabulary.

Notice the subject is plural so the verb (ARE) is also plural.

The comic is very interesting.

Notice the subject is singular so the verb  (BE) is also singular.

EASY RIGHT! Make sure you always correct yourself and practise as much as possible.
