ESOL Ws/E3.2a

Use basic sentence grammar accurately (i) Know the form of, and understand the concept expressed by a variety of tenses, in statement, negative and question form, and apply this in writing (ii) Know that the range and usage of tenses and aspect does not always correspond directly with the range in learners' other languages, e.g. in Chinese there are no verb changes to express the concept of time (iii) Understand that a verb and its subject must agree in terms of number, and apply this in their own writing (iv) Understand that the use of tenses or subject-verb agreement in written standard English is not always the same as those in spoken varieties of English, and recognise the effect of this upon register e.g. he done it (London variety of English), I were right pleased (Yorkshire variety of English) (v) Develop accuracy in non-verb grammar, e.g. use of articles, comparative form of the adjective (vi) Use pronouns to show links between different parts of a text, making it clear what the pronouns refer to
