There are eight parts of speech in the English language and they help indicate the role a word plays in a sentence. This class will enable students to understand the different components of speech including: verbs, nouns, adverbs, etc. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the differences between each component, as well as engaging in activities that will allow them to put their new or refreshed knowledge into practice. This class is great for any age as the parts of speech are used every time you write!
