• Unit 1: Making Sentences Work – Agreement

    This unit introduces you to number and tense agreement. In English, it is important that the number of a noun, meaning if it is singular or plural, and the timing of verbs in a sentence or paragraph, referred to as the verbs' tense, stays consistent. For example, readers would be confused if a sentence mentioned one dog, but later said "dogs", or if that dog ran while also running. In this unit, you'll learn that by knowing what tense to use and how to apply that tense to all verbs in a sentence or paragraph, you can help the reader follow along easily. Finally, you'll practice recognizing tense agreement and correcting it where it disagrees.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 3 hours.
