EnglishClub's social network
Good morning, dear Learners and Teachers, Newbies and Seniors. ^_^
How are you today? I hope you’re pretty well. Have you learned new grammar or memorized new vocabulary today? How great to see there are many games these days. I'm sure it will enrich our vocabulary. :))
To boost our English writing skill, I'd like to invite you to practice writing with grammar “not only…but also...”. I’m sure most of you already know this. It is simple just to say "you're beautiful and smart", but this 'not only...but also' is usually used to emphasize the second statement. So, the task is to write a blog using this grammar. You can write a dialogue, a short story, a letter, or even a poem (I'm not sure if it would be good, but wanna try? :) You can also add some new vocabulary you learned in your blog.
Please write the proper title in your blog. Of course you can add your own title after that. Example: Blog Challenge ~ Not only…but also: Dialogue in the Main Room. In case you don’t want to write this kind of title, please include the link of this blog at the top of your blog.
Most important! Please write the words “not only but also...” in bold in your writing, like in my example dialogue.
Here are the example sentences I provided for you. You can find more information in your grammar book or internet or Teacher Dan’s blog as I haven’t found this in EnglishClub, yet. The point is the words after not only and but also are the same part of speech. As usual, I hope not only learners but also fluent teachers or English Native Speakers will participate. ^_^
The King and The Minister
The Prime Minister: Your Majesty! There are lots of problems in this country. Many people are not only suffering from hunger but also dying of the plague. We run out of not only food supplies but also water. What should we do, Your Majesty?
The King: Minister! How could you just tell this to me now!! This is not only shocking but also shameful.
The Prime Minister: Your Majesty! My apology to say that it is because you’ve been precoccupied recently. You were not only hunting in the forest but also enjoying the hot springs. We didn’t have courage to disturb you as you were relaxing.
The King: You’re wrong! You should have told me. I would have left all my contentment.
The Prime Minister: You are truly merciful, Your Majesty!
The King: Take 10 boxes of gold out of the royal warehouse! Not only will we import the necessary groceries to meet the urgent requirement, but we’ll also make an appropriate plan for domestic irrigation of these items and extend your help to the farmers in this respect. This is an urgent matter.
The Prime Minister and other ministers: Your grace is immeasurable, Your Majesty!
Now, your turn! I hope you enjoy this blog challenge.
Thank you for your time. Have a great week & Keep blogging! ^_^
