Create the perfect sentence

english tipsStudents often feel the need to 'learn grammar' so that they can construct accurate sentences and use them in their speech and writing. There are many ways of doing this. Below is one way you can practise writing sentences that are accurate and meaningful. Look at the front page of a newspaper like the Times or the Guardian. Read the headlines. Set a task for yourself by changing headlines into grammatically complete sentences. By doing this you will practise grammar, improve vocabulary and learn more about the country you are visiting! Here is an example: Victoria station crime: 19 boys quizzed If you converted the above into two complete sentences, you would say: There was a crime at Victoria Station. (You need a verb / perhaps an article / and a preposition for a complete sentence) Nineteen boys were quizzed... (Good practice in the passive!) Vocabulary point: quizzed = questioned
