What I think I have learned in unit18 about models, phrasal verbs and passive voice in detail is that model auxiliary verbs basic rules is they are used before other verbs to add meaning to the main verb. Modals can be used to express a number of different ideas, such as obligation, possibility and probability, permission and prohibition, ability and advice. Some modals are can, could, may, might, shall, should, will, would, must, have to, have got to, need to, needn’t and ought to. They can also be used to express differing degrees of formality. Modal verbs do not change in form according to person, they are followed by a verb in its base form. This applies for both present and future meanings. Some teaching ideas that teachers can use are, the role play, rules and signs.
In the Passive voice, the object of an active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb. But in the passive voice, the agent is much less important, or does not appear. Only transitive verbs are used in the passive. It is not possible to use verbs such as happen, sleep, come and seem in the the passive. For both the active voice and the passive, the tense of the sentence always remains the same. The passive is most frequently used when it is not know, not important, or we do not want to say, exactly who performs an action. And the passive may be used with a by phrase when the speaker or writer wants the listener or reader to know who performs the action. There are some typical errors that the students may make like leaving the verb ‘to be’ out of the sentence. And using the verb ‘to be’ in the wrong tense or overuse of ‘by’. However, the teacher can use teaching idea like cutting up varied active/passive sentences and getting students to match them.
A clause is a group of words containing a subject and a verb. And there are three categories of clauses: independent clause, dependent clause and relative clause. Phrasal verbs, or multi-word verbs, consist of a verb plus one or two particles. They operate as one item. There are three basic types of phrasal verbs, intransitive, transitive separable and transitive inseparable. Teacher should keep track of the phrasal verbs that have been taught and try to use them naturally during uncontrolled conversation. Choosing a particular subject can also make the process of learning phrasal verbs easier.
