learn English online free intermediate lesson imperative and articles

Hello English learners!

In today’s intermediate lesson, we will practice using “a/an” and “the”. We will also use the imperative of a verb.

Articles A/An and The

A/An: For unspecified things. (We don’t know which one). Use “An” for words beginning with vowel sounds (a, e, i, o, u sounds). Use “A” for words beginning with other sounds.
For example:
1. Can I have a sandwich please?

 

 

 

 

2. I saw an ostrich.

 

 

 

 

3. There’s a TV show about Africa.

 

 

 

 

The: For specified things. (We know which one). Or there is only one of something.
For example:
1. Isn’t the moon beautiful tonight?

 

 

 

 

2. The dog is on the sofa.

 

 

 

 

3. Prince William’s grandmother is the Queen.

 

 

 

 

Imperative Verbs

Imperative verbs are used to tell someone to do something.
The imperative form is the same as the infinitive, without “to“.
For example:
infinitive: to eat; imperative: eat
infinitive: to watch; imperative: watch
infinitive: to study; imperative: study

Example sentences:
1. Give me that book please.

 

 

 

 

2. Put the groceries away!

 

 

 

 

3. Paint the fence tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

4. Tell me your name.

 

 

 

 

5. Be quiet!

 

 

 

 

6. Stop shouting!
