Ballonnen kunnen vliegen ik vraag me af waarom Ze hebben geen vleugels Ik zou willen weten hoever ze zouden gaan Als we hun touwtjes breken

Some like them red While, some instead, Prefer them green or blue But I just find That any kind Is good enough, Don’t you?

Sommige houden van een rode terwijl anderen, daarvoor in de plaats liever groene of blauwe hebben maar ik vind gewoon dat elk soort goed genoeg is vind je niet?

Voor de docent Grammar 1

Persoonlijk en bezittelijk voornaamwoord: Persoonlijk voornaamnwoord Bezittelijk voornaamwoord my (mijn) I (ik) (altijd hoofdletter) you (jouw/uw) your (jouw/uw) she (zij) her (haar) he (hij) his (zijn) it (het) its (zijn/haar)(van dieren/dingen, behalve huisdieren = he of she) we (wij) our (ons) you (jullie) your (van jullie) they (ze) their (van hun)

Grammar 2 – Het hulpwerkwoord ‘to be’ Het hulpwerkwoord ‘to be’ = zijn ik ben = I am (I’m) (“I” schrijf altijd met een hoofdletter) jij bent = you are (you’re) zij is = she is (she’s) hij is = he is (he’s) het is = it is (it’s) wij zijn = we are (we’re) jullie zijn = you are (you’re) zij zijn = they are (they’re) N.B. Zoals het Nederlands infinitief (= het hele werkwoord) op -en eindigt, zo begint het Engelse zelfstandige werkwoord to.

40


Grammar 3 In het Engels komt er een streepje tussen de getallen 21 t/m 99 Let op de spelling van: five- fifteen, eighteen 1. one 2. two 3. three 4. four 5. five 6. six 7. seven 8. eight 9. nine 10. ten 11. eleven 12. twelve 13. thirteen 14. fourteen 15. fifteen 16. sixteen 17. seventeen 18. eighteen 19. nineteen 20. twenty 21. twenty-one 22. twenty-two 23. twenty-three 24. twenty-four 25. twenty-five

41


Grammar 4

Regelmatig meervoud: Normaal gesproken zet je een Engels zelfstandig naamwoord in het meervoud door er een s achter te zetten. Bijvoorbeeld: book – books, pen – pens, teacher – teachers.

Grammar 5

Vervoeging regelmatig werkwoord in de tegenwoordige tijd Het zelfstandig werkwoord wordt als volgt vervoegd: ik woon I live jij woont you live zij woont she lives (!) hij woont he lives (!) het woont it lives (!) wij wonen we live jullie wonen you live zij wonen they live

Grammar 6

Bezit bij personen: Om bij personen bezit aan te geven, gebruik een s (nooit de s aan het woord vastmaken, want dat is de meervoudsuitgang. Vergelijk: book – books). Woorden die in het meervoud al op een s eindigen, krijgen alleen een apostrof. Bijvoorbeeld: the pupils’ bags. Voor dingen gebruik je de of-constructie. Bijvoorbeeld: the door of the classroom (en niet de classroom’s door).

42


Grammar 7

Het hulpwerkwoord TO DO Als je een zin vragend of ontkennend maakt en er staat geen ander hulpwerkwoord in de zin, gebruik je een vorm van het hulpwerkwoord TO DO. doen ik doe jij/u doet zij doet hij doet het doet wij doen jullie doen zij doen Bijvoorbeeld: I write. You write. She writes. He writes. It writes. We write. You write. They write.

= = = = = = = = =

to do I do you do she does he does it does we do you do they do

I don’t write. You don’t write. She doesn’t write. He doesn’t write. It doesn’t write. We don’t write. You don’t write. They don’t write.

Do I write? Do you write? Does she write? Does he write? Does it write? Do we write? Do you write? Do they write?
