English grammar in use

Thanks for showing your overwhelming response in my earlier posts as I am writing the forth post where I will be telling more ways to help you out in sharpening your English skills.

Let’s take a look at the ways by which we can polish our English further.

In English, we would have often use the word “Come” and “return” and all of us know their meaning as well. However, when it comes to their proper usage of words, we often make the most prominent mistake.

For example,

We often say that

We have come from office or school.  (Wrong)

The correct form should be

We have returned from office or school (right)

The basic different which lies between “come” and return”:-

We use the word “return” where we had already gone to a place and that we are returning from there.

While on the other hand, the word “come” is used when none such an action takes place.
For example, we can say

My friend will come to house on my birthday (correct)

Here, if we use the word “return” for them, then it is going to be wrong

Like

My friend will return to my house on birthday. (Wrong)

Hope, you have got the basic difference from the two words “come” and “return”

 One of the books namely Oxford Learner’s Pocket – Verbs and Tenses is quite useful for those who are desirous of knowing their mistakes and loopholes in English grammar. It is indeed a must have for people eyeing towards knowing their mistakes.

Let’s take a look at the other mistakes which we often tend to do.

We often compliment something or the other if we felt good. However, rarely do we use the most importance word during such times,

For example, we shouldn’t say that

The food is good (wrong)

The food is tasty, sumptuous, mouthwatering or delicious (You can use any one amongst these four for food)

 

We shouldn’t say

The match was good (wrong)

The correct form is

The match was interesting, electrifying etc.

Similarly, if we want to compliment any girl, we use “beautiful” while for boys we use “handsome”.

These are some of small things which matters a lot in the long run.

Apart from these, one of the other things which you need to start preparing yourself is about Active and Passive Voice

In the world of blogging, there are so many cases when we do not know the proper way to say a thing. In such cases we can make the use of Passive voice.

 

For example

The lion killed the dear (Active Voice)

The dear is killed by the lion (Passive Voice)

As a blogger cum writer, if you are told to re-write a certain paragraph, then you can easily make the best use of this knowledge.

 

My experience

One of my other experiences which I am sharing in the post relates to the time when I was in class 3rd.  I still remember that the teacher asked me about my hobbies and I said “Computer”. She corrected me by saying that it should be

“I love playing on computer”

or

“I love working on computer”

Similarly, those who love music, when being asked about their hobbies, they should say that they “love listening music”.

Same goes with other hobbies as well.

I am going to further furnish more knowledgeable posts, which will make your journey of writing as well as speaking English easy like never before.

I would like to begin the post by saying a “Big Thank You” . Since this is my third post and it necessitates me to write this one in order to further help bloggers to have a greater control over their writing skills.

I grew in an English medium background and I always had tremendous interest towards learning as well as polishing skills. Studying in an English medium background has its fair share of challenges as well since every one in the school expected me to have great hold of English and to be at par with their acceptations was something which I have to do any how. Hence, being my third post I knew that all of you would equally be engaging as well as reading my post with greater interest.

Have  a look at my experiences

In order to help you further, I need to share my experience, along with an English grammar book namely Intermediate English – Highly recommended book for polishing your English.
After all they matter a lot towards helping you to overcome them

The problem which I faced while sharpening my English skills.

I wasn’t getting a proper environment where I can talk with my friends of family members. Although, I tried talking to them, yet most of them were not supportive. Honestly speaking,  I couldn’t blame them as well, since they neither had much grasp about the language, nor they had any interest in the same as well.  In return, I had to face lots of sarcasm from them as they said that I am trying to become an English man and similar such sorts of comments.

There was a phase when I used to feel that all my hard-work is going down the drain. I made full use of my holidays as well as free time by writing letters as well as essays on daily basis, years back.  Apart from that, I also used to watch English news.

So, my main motive to write the post is that if you feel that you are not getting due share of your hard work, don’t worry, you will eventually get provided that you stick doing to what I have told you in my earlier posts.

  1. The thing which I will suggest you is to be habitual of watching English news channels on daily basis. If you are in the learning phase, it is important for you to come across with new words so that you can memorize them. Hence, there is a very little chance that they (words) will slip from your mind (owing to the fact that you will be in full practice).
  2. However, I devised another innovative trick (which I couldn’t mention in my first and third post) and that was to do the cricket commentary by muting the television. After all, every one of us love cricket to the core and why not to comment by muting it off. This will further make your journey of sharpening your skills a lot easy like never before. Since, the more you speak yourself, the better it is going to be for you towards enhancing the powers.

English has seen few changes in the process as well. For example,

  1. In my earlier days, I have been grown up learning that, with pronouns such as “I” and “We”, we are supposed to use the helping word “Shall” and for other pronouns in the form of “He”, “She”, “It”, “We” and They”, we will use “Will”. However, that hasn’t been the case now. Since, with any pronouns we only use “Will”. For example,

I will go there.

He will return from there.

  1. English is regarded to be a funny language and if the learning phase is devoid of fun and frolic, then you possibly won’t enjoy much. On the same lines, there is a word namely “Gay” which was primarily used for “Happiness”. I still remember that I have used this word so many times primarily to express my state of mind by saying, that I am gay. However, with the passage of time, it’s another meaning possibly held a far greater significance and if today, I will use this word again, then in all probability, others will be confused and surprised regarding my gender as well. Isn’t it?

 

Thanks bloggers for bestowing so much love and affection. Stay tuned for more, thanks
