Enhance your Writing with Adverb Clauses

Por: Coursera . en: , ,

  • Introduction to Adverb Clauses
    • This week, before you start learning about adverb clauses, you’ll write a paragraph. Why? Because at the end of the course, you’re going to compare what you can write now with what you’ll be able to write then--after you’ve learned about adverb clauses.

      After writing, you’ll start learning new lessons. You’ll learn how to identify adverb clauses, to create sentences with them, and to punctuate them correctly with commas. For each lesson, you’ll learn from some videos, practice exercises on your own, and take a quiz to check your understanding.

      Are you ready? There’s a lot to learn, so let’s get started!
  • Meaning & Use of Adverb Clauses (Part 1)
    • Welcome to Week 2! This week, we’ll examine some common connecting words called subordinating conjunctions. We’ll specifically focus on conjunctions of time, place, cause, and contrast. You’ll watch lesson videos and videos that give you guided practice with using these types of adverb clauses correctly. At each step, you’ll practice on your own, check your answers, and complete quizzes to test your knowledge. Finally, you’ll apply what you learned by writing complex sentences with adverb clauses.

      We’ll go step-by-step so that you can feel confident using new adverb clauses. Let’s get started!
  • Meaning & Use of Adverb Clauses (Part 2)
    • This week, we’ll continue in our exploration of the meaning and use of adverb clauses. First, we’ll learn about clauses of condition, which are very common in the everyday language of fluent English speakers. After conditional clauses, you’ll learn about common mistakes with adverb clauses, and this knowledge will help you to check and edit your own writing when you write conditional sentences in a discussion post. By the end of this week, you’ll have learned what you need to know in order to successfully write with adjective clauses in the last part of the course. Good luck!
  • Adverb Clause in Your Writing
    • This week, we’ll focus more on writing. First, you’ll learn about writing with a variety of sentence structures. Then, you’ll write a paragraph about your routine--again! You did this in Week 1, but now, you’re going to show off everything you’ve learned about sentence types and adverb clauses. After writing, you’ll compare this week’s writing with Week 1’s writing, and you’ll be able to see how much more advanced your writing is now--thanks to adverb clauses. Finally, you’ll finish by evaluating another learner’s use of adverb clauses. You’ve worked hard, and now’s the time to see the results of your effort. Congratulations!
