How to know Grammar Forms Identification:-




Do you know the names of these grammar forms?

Identifying grammar forms using authentic materials is a great way to practice your understanding English. You can do this by getting a copy of a magazine, newspaper, or print off a page from the internet. Underline grammar constructions you know and identify them. You can even use colored pens to underline different parts of speech, or identify phrasal verbs, etc. To help you understand the idea, here's a short tale about a biking race.

Have you ever been so excited (1) that you almost lost your breakfast? That’s how I felt last week when I participated in a mountain-biking race near Mt. Hood (2). The trail was twenty-six miles long through some of the forest which borders on the town of Hood River (3). I rarely (4) take part in races, but I decided that this race was for me (5). My friend and I left early in the morning to make sure we got to the race on time. We’ve been late for races before, so we didn’t want to miss out this time (6).
Racing (7) is a great way to test your skills against other amateur riders (8) from around the area, and this race was no exception. There were young dudes with the latest bikes that were more expensive (9) than my car! Even though it was windy and cold, (10) the riders were at the starting line ready to go at eight a.m. I started out by riding as hard as I could (11) because I thought I could get out in front of the competition. Unfortunately, I drink (12) too much beer and the night before the race was no exception. I started to feel my hangover giving me a pounding (13) headache, so I slowed down and let (14) some of the others pass me. Soon, I was at the back of the group wishing I hadn’t drunk (15) so much the night before. After we had ridden for two hours (16), it was clear I wasn’t going to win. I told myself (17) not to worry, so I just enjoyed the ride and came in last place. It didn’t really matter.
