We use ‘which’ when we want to ask a question about a specific animal, person, thing or place.

We use ‘how’ when we want to know the manner in which something is done. We also use ‘how’ when we want more information or details.

Conjunctions
Conjunctions are linking words. They can link words, phrases or clauses.
and
We use ‘and’ to join two nouns or adjectives.
e.g.

Amelia is clever and hardworking.
because
We use ‘because’ to show reason.
e.g.

The Simple Past Tense
The simple past tense refers to an action which happened in the past.

We add
‘–ed’ to regular verbs to form the simple past tense.
e.g.
Rosita cleaned her room yesterday.
Mr. Tan went to Pulau Langkawi last Sunday.
Most verbs in the past tense end with ‘-ed’.
e.g.
She walked home from school yesterday.
My mother cooked some spaghetti this morning.
When we add ‘-ed’, we have to change the spelling of some verbs (‘-y’ to ‘–i’). Sometimes we need to add an extra letter, e.g. an extra ‘p’ to ‘stop’ for its past tense ‘stopped’.
e.g.
Mrs. Lim carried the heavy basket.
The baby cried loudly.
He stopped at the junction.
