Who vs Whom | Ask Linda! | English Grammar

 

This is another set of words that are easily confused by people. Let's break it down: WHO is used to refer to the subject of the sentence. WHOM on the other hand refers to the object. The usage of this pair the same as 'he' and ?him?. Therefore, there is a very easy trick to figure out which word is correct. _______ did this? -> would you use 'he' or 'him'? Yes, he. So if he is correct, so is WHO. Who did this? He did. What about this one? ____ should I invite? Which one is correct: Should I invite he? Or Should I invite him? Him is correct and therefore so is whom. Whom should I invite? Also keep in mind that you do not use 'that' to refer to people. Therefore: He was the only person that came. IS INCORRECT! He was the only person who came. IS CORRECT. Next time, try to use the he or him trick to find the correct answer to the who/whom question. That's it for today. See you next time.


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This two videos was a big reminder for me when i was i school at the 7, 8, and 9 grade. Some of the teacher where great and some was really bad. But most where good. A smile can do a lot of good things in many different situation. So i will be a smiling teacher. There is of course other things you need to have as a teacher which is important. A smile is a good start.This unit described the main parts of speech for English. Rules were specified as were grammar elements that may be particularly hard for students whose native language is not English. As a native English speaker, I use the correct grammar. However, this unit made me aware of how much I have to learn as far as naming the parts of speech and communicating the rules.
