I cook dinner.
She makes juice.
You read a book.
We watch a film.
In this lesson, we speak about actions and objects of those actions. When you finish this lesson, you will be able to make sentences about your actions and actions of others and the objects of those actions. Here are some examples:
'I drink', 'She sings', and 'They play' are the examples of the basic sentence pattern in English: Subject + Verb (SV). These sentences have the subjects (I, she, they) who do an action (drink, sing, play).
When you want to explain the action on the sentence with more details you can use an object in the sentence. For example, “I drink” is the basic sentence pattern and “I drink lemonade” is the sentence pattern with an object. The object here is “lemonade”. This pattern is used most often in the English language.
When you want to say that an action in a sentence has an effect on a person, or you do not want to use a noun but a shorter pronoun, you can use object pronouns. The subject pronouns such “I”, ”he” or “they” for example are different from the object pronouns. In the place of an object we use exactly these object pronouns:
