Correct English Grammar: Interjections

Common English Rules

Correct English Grammar: The Conjunctions

Conjunctions join nouns, phrases and clauses and add transitions to one’s speech and writing. There is a better flow of ideas if conjunctions are used properly.

Common English Rules

1.      Elements in the Parallel statements must be parallel. We must use Present Indefinite Tense after When, If, As soon as and Unless if there is a Future Tense in the next clause. Both refers to two things, not more than two, so As well As must be used with it if there are more than two persons or things.

2.      We use Whether after Doubt, not That. After Although, we must use Yet, not, But. We use Than after No sooner and When after Scarcely. Two Conjunctions in one sentence are not possible. After Lest, we must use Should, not Shall.

Common English Rules

1.      Some words do not take prepositions after them.
2.      Some verbs do take prepositions after them.

3.      If a verb takes a particular preposition, it must be used if the sentence has an object to which the preposition refers.
4.      After Regard, Define, we use As, but not after Consider.
5.      We use Between for two and Among for more than two. Beside means “near” and Besides means “In addition to”. We use either Despite or In spite of but no other form is possible.
6.      The above incorrect Prepositional sentences represent wrong use of Prepositions.

Correct English Grammar: The Verb

Verb is the most important Part of Speech in English. So, special care should be taken while using it. Choice of verbs and proper handling of its forms and clauses is most important for flawless communication. Verbs normally show action and state.

Common English Rules:

1.      Before FOR and SINCE, we usually use Perfect or Perfect Continuous Tenses, not Continuous tenses. Verbs such as understand, hear and smell are not normally used in Progressive Tenses.

2.      Transitive verbs must take objects and Intransitive verbs do the otherwise. Also, the Intransitive verbs are not used in the passive.
3.      If a job is done to the subject of a sentence, it must be in the passive. In Passives, we always use the third form of the verb. By is used if there is an Agent and With if there is an instrument.
4.      If the first clause of a sentence is in the past, the other, too, must be past
5.      We don’t use Not after Unless. If there are two clauses in a sentence referring to the future, If, When, unless should be in the Present.
6.      We don’t use To after all Modal Auxiliaries such as Can, Could, Will and Had better. Must is used for Logical Necessity and Should for social and moral obligations. We always use Second form of the verb after Would      Rather That. (Be) Used To shows habits and must take an –Ing after the verb and Used To shows habitual actions in the past, it doesn’t take an –Ing. After Suggested/ Proposed/It is important That, we use verb without S,ES in TPS. After High Time and As If, we use Past Indefinite or Was or Were.
8.      We don’t use To after Let, Make and Have when they are used in Causative sentences. But we use To after Get.  When you don’t mention the Agent, you can use Third form of the verb after Get and Have; but if there is an Agent, you must use first form of the verb after them.
9.      I Wish shows Optative feelings and Kaash. For this, Only the following structures are possible with the following meanings.

a.      I wish + Had iii                =  Past meaning
b.      Would/could                                =  Present/future temporary wish
c.       ii verb form                                  =  Present repeated wish
d.      were                            =  Future wish

English Communication Skills For ACCA, CAT and CA Students

Background of the Course
Students and teachers can speak and understand English in a few situations. They studied basic grammar and vocabulary and are able to read newspapers and magazines in English. But they need more practice in listening and speaking so that they have the confidence to use English in inter-personal situations, networking events and receptions. Students and teachers require a system to improve their Communication Skills (Written and Spoken) while building more grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The ability to communicate effectively in different social and academic situations is lacking in many of
our students and teachers and this course was designed keeping in view of the issue in mind.

Course Description

This course is designed to provide you with the essentials of Professional Communication and Presentation Skills. The course encourages active participation to prepare the student to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes required to be successful in Modern Communication and Presentation Situations. The course includes the basics of communication ranging from principles of communication to the necessary tools such as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Further, the course develops into a more challenging context such as Presentation Skills, Business Letters and reports. This course focuses both the acquisition and use of communication skills in a variety of verbal and non-verbal presentation situations. In this course each student will have the chance to develop an individual and team presentations. They will acquire these skills through a variety of exercises and application techniques. This course is highly interactive and practical.
Course Objectives
The students of this course need basic communication skills, specific speaking and listening skills, interpersonal and group communication skills and listening competencies that will help them succeed in future courses and on the job. The following student outcomes represent the market expectations. Students will be able to achieve the following THREE skills:
  1. Understand Communication Skills as part of social and academic interaction.
  2. Write and present information effectively, logically and persuasively.
  3. Develop personality traits as part of an effective communicator.
My central and guiding focus is to constantly reinforce confidence in the students by concentrating on what works about the individual. This two-month program is a journey that begins by exploring the dynamics and techniques of effective interpersonal and written communication resulting in full connection between presenting and relationship building.

Passion for English: Winners

Winners put extra effort even when it hurts – Shiv Khera

Winners are not those who do different things all their lives but they are people who keep doing things all their lives differently. It is difficult to continue a thing all one’s life for success, so very few people succeed in life. But those who want to be winners, they must put extra efforts in what they do even when it hurts. It hurts you, but you get up early in the morning, it hurts you but take your work and do it and it hurts you but must get your things done. Thus winners put extra effort even when it hurts.

Correct English Grammar: Adverbs

Adverbs, unlike Adjectives, modify verbs and Adjectives; but do not qualify or modify Noun or Pronoun. They are mainly limited to Verbs only and control their performance and frequency.
Common English Rules: Adverbs
1.      Only Adverbs modify verbs, not Adjectives. Some words look like Adverbs such as cowardly, manly etc. but are Adjectives, so they cannot modify verbs.

2.      In Verbal Modifiers, we use Too instead of Very; otherwise in simple sentences, Too is wrong before Adjectives in Academic Register.
3.      Past Indefinite Tense takes Ago, not Before. Before Past Participles, we use Adverbs, not Adjectives to convey the sense of manner.
4.      Adverbs of frequency usually come in the middle of a sentence and Adverbs of time usually come at the end. The complete expression to show ability is Know how to + vi., not Know alone.
5.      We don’t normally use To after But and Than. We use Else but and Other than, not the otherwise.
6.            We usually use Yet at the end of a sentence and Even and Already between Helping and Real Verbs.
7.      When must take a subject. We use For to show period of time and Since to show point of time.
8.      If Adverbs of Frequency are used before the sentence, the helping verb comes, before the subject. Some time means “for some time only, not for long” and Sometimes means “only often or occasionally, not always”
9.      As a whole means “Generally” and Wholly means “Completely”.
