Advanced English Grammar: Noun Clauses

Having trouble finding the subject or object in a sentence? It might be a noun clause. In this lesson, we’ll look at the dependent clause and its conjunctions in order to write better sentences and to read high-level texts like those you will find in newspapers, academic essays, and literature. This is also important if you’re in university or taking a test like IELTS or TOEFL. As a writer, I focus my attention on the many elements we use to build great sentences and paragraphs. I’ve broken down this advanced part of English grammar and will teach it to you simply — so you can understand and use the noun clauses in your own writing. I’ll show you many examples of noun clauses, so you can see the noun clause in context.
