[Part 1]

Hi, everybody.

In this video, we’re going to learn how to make questions using ‘what’ and ‘be’ verbs.

Ok…

Now when we have one thing, we have to use the ‘be’ verb ‘is’.

“What is it?”

“What is it?”

“It is a watch.”

“It is a watch.”

It’s one thing, so I have to say ‘a’.

“a watch.”

I can also use the contraction for ‘it is’, “it’s”.

Ok, now listen.

“It’s a ….”

“It’s a ….”

“It’s a watch.”

“It’s a watch.”

“What is it?”

“What is it?”

“It’s a marker.”

“It’s a marker.”

Ok…

Now, there are two highlighters.

Ok, two.

We use ‘are’.

“What are they?”

“What are they?”

“They are highlighters.”

“They are highlighters.”

We have more than one, so we have to say “are”.

And we have to put an ‘s’ at the end.

Again, we can use a contraction for ‘they are’: “they’re”.

“They’re highlighters.”

“They’re highlighters.”

“What are they?”

“What are they?”

“They’re markers.”

“They’re markers.”

Ok…

We’re going to look at some examples and I’m going to ask some questions.

We please try to answer them.

Ok…

Now let’s focus on pronunciation and saying these fast.

Ok…

English speakers speak very quickly, so you have to practice as well.

Ok…

“What is it?”

Ok, let’s try it faster three times

“What is it?”

“What is it?”

“What is it?”

It sounds like one word.

Ok, and the answer is also very fast.

“It’s a…”

“It’s a…”

“It’s a…”

“It’s a pencil.”

“It’s a chair.”

“It’s a marker.”

Ok…

When we have more than one, we say, “What are they?”.

Let’s do it fast three times.

“What are they?”

“What are they?”

“What are they?”

Ok…

And when you answer.

“They’re…”

“They’re pencils”

“They’re chairs”

“They’re markers”

Ok, so this video was ‘what’ and ‘be’ verbs.

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

Bye.
