Grammar Exercises

1. Challenge your students to find two  of each of the following nouns: abstract, concrete, proper and common nouns.

2.  When we use a noun in front of another noun to describe it that first noun becomes an adjective, it is the describing word.  Let your students have some fun mixing up words.  Ask them to pair up nouns to create things that have never existed and then write a definition for it.

For example: a Dad light (a night light that has your father's face on it), a family roll (a giant bread roll that is big enough for the whole family) or a beetroot rattle (a baby's rattle made out of dried beetroot).

Do you want to make your own website?

I was very lucky. When I was looking for someone to show me how to make a website I found SBI.

I watched lots of videos made by people that were using SBI and then I decided to take the plunge and I haven't looked back.

I learnt how to make a quality website based around popular keyword searches which ensured that my pages would rank high in the search engines. Throughout the process, SBI emphasized the importance of producing something of real value. 

Over the course of three years, a few hours a week,  I followed their step by step guide and to my delight and amazement,  I now have a website that attracts over 30 000 visitors a month and creates a passive income.  

If you are thinking of building your own website  but are worried about getting the wrong advice then do what I did. Join SBI.

SBI is the real deal; a genuine company that teaches and supports first time web builders so that you get the best results from your hard work.

Check out the videos that convinced me and get started......
