Good Class.

I am learning English by reading detective stories, and they have sentences with modifying phrases and modifying clauses.
Simple sentences are simple and understood.
Compound sentences are simple and understood.
Complex sentences are simple and understood.
Complex-compound sentences are simple and understood.
But sentences with modifying phrases and modifying clauses (modifiers) are difficult for me to understand easily. For example:
1- Running to catch the bus, I tripped on my untied shoelace.
2- The decorator selected a new cabinet painted bright yellow for the kitchen.
3- While driving to work yesterday morning, I was delayed by an accident on the highway.
4- Many expected Al Gore, having lost one of the most controversial elections in history, to run for president again in 2004.
5- Having lost one of the most controversial elections in history, Al Gore was expected by many to run for president again in 2004.
6- Distracted by the demands of my two children, I burned the chicken in the oven.
7- When birds fly in the path of an airplane, they can produce dangerous and costly accidents.
8- Hoping to make the space more sunny, Nancy expanded her bedroom and fitted it with a large skylight.
9- Swollen by a week of heavy rain, Missouri River eventually flooded the grasslands on either side.
Will you all teachers concentrate on lessons about modifying phrases and clauses for me and for many advanced students and for history too.

Monday, September 28th 2015

    I’m agree with you.

    Friday, February 5th 2016

      I agree with you.

Hello Jade, I really enjoyed your lesson. It was very useful. However in your previous video You was jumping and saying some strange sounds at the end.
