[Part 1]

This is a checkup for ‘this’, ‘that’, ‘these’, ‘those’, possesive adjectives, and possessive pronouns.

Ok…

Now here, I want you to focus on ‘this’, ‘that’, ‘these’, and ‘those’.

Ok, so here’s the first example.

We have a dog.

One dog.

So we have to use ‘this’ or ‘that’.

Ok…

If it’s close, I say, “This is a dog.”

If it’s far away, I say, “That is a dog.”

So, I’m going to write ‘this’.

Ok…

The next one says, “…are balloons.”

“…are balloons.”

With an ‘s’.

There’s more than one.

So can we use ‘this’ or ‘that’?

No.

We have to use ‘these’ or ‘those’.

So, if it’s close, I say “These are balloons.”

If they are far, “Those are balloons.”

Ok…

So let’s write ‘those’.

“Those are balloons.”

Ok…

Now when we ask the question “Are these pens?”, we have more than one.

“These pens.”

With an ‘s’.

Ok…

I can put two answers here.

“No, ___ aren’t.”

I can say “No, these aren’t.”

Or…

I can say “No, they aren’t.”

Ok…

The next one.

“These ____ eyes.”

We need a ‘be’ verb.

Ok…

There’s more than one.

Right, there are two eyes.

So, “These are eyes.”

Ok…

And here “…is a nose.”

One.

A nose.

And it’s close.

So, I have ot say “This is a nose.”

Ok, let’s move on to the next part.

2:33 [Part 2]

Ok…

We’re going to do some more checkup.

Now here I want you to focus on possessive adjectives and possessive pronouns.

Let’s look at the first example.

“These are my pen.”

Ok…

We have ‘these…are’.

This means we need more than one.

Right…

More than one pen.

So, we have to put ‘s’.

“These are my pens.”

Ok…

Let’s look at these two together.

“Those aren’t her children.”

Ok…

So we can also say, “Those aren’t ____.”

What do we put?

“… her children.”

We can always say, “Those aren’t hers.”

Ok…

We don’t need a noun here.

We do need a noun over here, though.

Ok…

Then, “Is it yours?”

“Is it yours?”

“Yes, it’s _____.”

There’s no noun.

We have to say…”mine”.

“Is it yours?”

“Yes, it’s mine.”

Ok…

And the last two…

” _____ these his shoes?”

We need a ‘be’ verb here.

” _____ these his shoes?”

We have ‘these’ and we have ‘shoes’ with an ‘s’.

So we need the plural ‘be’ verb.

“Are”.

“Are these his shoes?”

Ok…

And the answer.

“No, they…”

Plural.

“…are.”

We have ‘no’.

“No, they aren’t”

Ok…

“Are not, aren’t”.

Ok…

Let’s move on to the next part.

4:37 [Part 3]

Ok…

For this last part, we’re going to look at these sentences.

But, they’re all wrong.

They all have mistakes.

So you have to find the mistakes for me.

Ok…

So, the first one says, “That are chairs.”

Hmmmm, we know that’s wrong.

‘That’ is used for singular nouns.

One.

But, it say “are” and it says “chairs” with an ‘s’.

So, we have to change this word.

We can say, “These are chairs.” or “Those are chairs.”

Ok…

“This book is my.”

Hmmmm.

We have the possessive pronoun ‘my’.

But remember, you have to have a noun after, but there’s no noun.

So, we can change this to the possessive adjective ‘mine’.

Ok…

You don’t need a noun if you say ‘mine’.

Ok…

“That is he house.”

Hmmmm.

We want to show that this house belongs to this man or boy.

“That is he house.”

But, this word ‘he’, does not show possession.

Ok…

So, we say, “This is his house.”

‘His’, then the noun ‘house’.

Similarly, for the next one.

“She name is Jenny.”

We want to show that this name belongs to Jenny.

So, we say…”her”.

“Her name is Jenny.”

Ok, and the last one is also similar.

“It’s ours house.”

Now, if we don’t have ‘house’, “It’s ours.”

We can say that.

But since we have a noun,… we use the possessive pronoun, “It’s ‘our’ house.”

Ok…

That was the checkup for possessive pronouns, possessive adjectives, ‘this’, ‘that’, ‘these’, and ‘those’.

I hope you understood and I’ll see you in he next video.

Bye.
