Good morning, everyone! :)

Borrowing the quote from Adaline, "Knowledge has no value unless we use and share it", I would like to discuss about grammar.

In this session, I will discuss 'Causative Verb'. From my observation, it is one of the grammatical mistakes commonly made by learners here. Please just ask OR tell me if you have any doubts.

'Causative verbs' is used when one doesn't perform the action himself/herself, but someone else/something else does it. There are 5 causative verbs we would discuss: have, make, get, let, and help. Check this out! :))

Now, it's time to do the exercises. :)

Exercise 1: Complete the sentences below with the appropriate causative verbs!

  1. Mrs. Cindy was really tired. She _______ her daughter to massage her shoulders.
  2. The girl broke the relationship without any clear reason. It _______ the boy cry.
  3. I will never ________ you go alone. So, I will accompany you to the movie tonight.
  4. Hard Rock music doesn't _______ me sleep well. I would prefer to hear nothing.
  5. The motor machine was suddenly broken on the way home. Fortunately, there was a garage near the incident. I _______ the mechanic repair my motorbike.
  6. The printer doesn't work well. Please _______ it fixed! I believe you know the person who can do that.

Exercise 2: Identify a grammatical error in each sentence below and correct it!

  1. The kid says, "Dad, would you let me to paint the wall, please? I think it's fun".
  2. I told them I would not eat much. I finally got my brothers taking me on a trip.
  3. The Air Conditioner doesn't seem to work well. I'll call the technician and have it check.
  4. The manager had the secretary written the proposal.
  5. Don't make me waiting any longer! I'm afraid I would give my heart to someone else. LOL
  6. Thank you so much, my friend. You have helped me solved this problem.

Thank you so much for your time. Would you give it a try? OR Would you make your example sentence in the comment below? I'd be glad to read your any comments.

Have a great November! ^_^

Dear SNRRR,,

Happy to see you again. ^_^ Wait..! Why do I not see number 6? Or you mean you missed number 4?

For sure, 1 to 3 are correct. Number 1 in error correction is also correct. These exercises are not the difficult ones as I only focus on Causative verbs. :)

Take your time, SNRRR. Thank you for doing the exercises. ^_^
