Halloween is approaching and to celebrate it at LaborEnglishZone we give you again a very interesting post on the origins of this holiday.
Have a nice Halloween and enjoy the post!
We can replace subject pronouns by names:
He's handsome = Brad Pitt's handsome
She's very inteligent = María's very intelligent
It's clever = My cat's clever
They are in the box = My books are in the box
If the subject is singular (we use 's) if it is plural (we use are). Examples:
Is/Are your mum pretty? Your mum=singular=Is she/Is your mum?
Is/Are your bird yellow? Your bird=singular=Is the bird/Is it?
Is/Are Peter a good teacher? Peter=singular=Is Peter/ Is he?
