Basic English Grammar Lesson 5: Nouns

"Nouns are naming words." Marie is shaking out a white linen table cloth and smoothing it over her dining table in preparation for a dinner party. "Setting the table is a great time to talk about nouns." Using place cards, napkins, china plates, sterling silver knives, forks and spoons, cut crystal stem ware and vases, fresh flowers, coffee cups and saucers, Marie uses the process of setting the table for dinner to provide us with a way of recognizing the people, places, things and qualities that nouns name, then goes on to explain the difference between proper nouns and common nouns, and singular nouns and plural nouns.

Workbook exercises and answer key are provided with this lesson.

This lesson is done well for basic nouns. However other lessons are covering way to much information for basic grammar.

Marie always explains exactly what I need to know with great instructions. In this video tutorial, she explains the different types of nouns and where you can find them. It's nice to have a visual resource when learning book grammar. I'm hooked on Marie's grammar series!
