Divide the elements into groups

Nouns can be either countable or uncountable. Countable nouns are those that refer to something that can be counted. They have both singular and plural forms. Uncountable nouns are those that don't have a plural form and cannot be used with "a/an" or "one".

Study the information. Complete the sentences with the correct compound noun. Mind the spelling Compound Nouns
  1. Some nouns consist of more than one word. These are compound nouns. Compound nouns can be formed in different ways, for example:
    • noun + noun e.g. bathroom
    • adjective + noun e.g. greenhouse
    • verb + noun e.g sidewalk
  2. Many compound nouns are written as one word, but some are written with hyphens or spaces. Use a dictionary to help you.
  3. We form the plural of most compounds by adding a plural ending to the last part of the compound. e.g. bathroom - bathrooms, but sister-in-law - sisters-in-law.
  1. This is a ball game. The players can "touch" the ball only with their feet. It is football .

    Делаем вместе с сыном бесплатные задания по английскому в Skysmart, это оказалось полезно не только для него, но и для меня. Например, вспомнила, как использовать артикли, — эта тема для меня всегда была сложноватой. Хотелось бы побольше заданий на аудирование, пока у сына этот навык хромает.

    Я занимаюсь в Skysmart с 3‑го класса, и немного удивился, когда нашел раздел с бесплатными заданиями здесь. Они отличаются от тех, которые мы проходим на уроках, но тоже интерактивные. По-моему, на компьютере делать упражнения получается быстрее и интереснее, чем в тетрадке.

    Наткнулась на этот сайт, когда готовилась к ВПР по английскому. Пассивный залог — моя больная тема, но бесплатные задания помогли вспомнить правила, а потом еще статью почитала, и работу написала в итоге хорошо.
