We use a reflexive pronoun when we want to refer back to the subject of the sentence or clause. Reflexive pronouns end in "-self" (singular) or "-selves" (plural). Some examples: myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself...
In the second unit we learn about phrasal verb that are verbs that is made up of a main verb together with an adverb or a preposition, or both. Typically, their meaning is not obvious from the meanings of the individual words themselves.
Some Examples are like: "Despite being a man of few words, Michael was a respected man in his town."
On unit 3 we learn about Verb patterns. Verb Patterns are used simply when we want to express an idea with two verbs. When we use two verbs together, a verb pattern is used. Example:- "I want to buy an electric car. " "I hate driving."
MODAL AUXILIARY VERBS
The verbs can, could, will, would, should, may, might, must, ought and shall are verbs which 'help' other verbs to express a meaning. For example: "You should have been watching the beans."
A preposition is a word used to link nouns, pronouns or phrases to other words in the sentence. There are many prepositions in the English language. In addition there are endless possibilities for creating prepositional phrases. There are prepositions of time, place and also to indicate direction. Some of the prepositions we saw in this partial were about, for, from, of, on, to, with.
