Simple Sentences

Every complete sentence contains two parts: a subject and a predicate. It describes only one thing, idea or question, and has only one verb.

To determine the subject of a sentence, first isolate the verb and then make a question by placing “who?” or “what?” before it — the answer is the subject.

The predicate (which always includes the verb) goes on to relate something about the subject.

Note: Questions and sentences in Spanish are the same, except you add the question mark

For instance:

1)   Perdón,  Usted habla español?

 

So first isolate the verb habla. Who speaks English? Usted

Therefore Usted is the Subject. What about the subject?

Habla español
