This blog attempts to share the assential of English Language to meet the needs of pupil in the Secondary School and to whom English is a foreign tongue. While I agree that learning the knowledge of English here is not the highroad to good speaking and writing, it must be acknowledged that English Proficiency is an important element in speaking and writing correctly. Pupils as well teachers should find this blog of some assistence, and those who wish to conduct a more extensive study of English Proficiency, will find it useful as a starting-point.

A Noun is a name: as, pencil, London, Aminah, Lim Cheng Swee, Raju, beauty.
A Pronoun is a word used for instead of a Noun; it shows the person or thing without actually giving the name of the person or things; as, he, she, it, this.
An Adjective is a word which adds to the meaning of a Noun, that is, it tells something more about the Noun; as, black cat, good boy, beautiful house.
A Verb is a word which tells us something about a person or thing. It is a "telling-word" or a "saying word". It tells us what a person or thing does. It also tells us what a person or thing is or suffers (i.e. has done to it) ; as, Milon writes. Dogs bark. Rahim is good. The cat is loved by the girl. The Verb is the most important word in a Sentence.
An Adverb is a word which adds something to the meaning of a Verb, an Adjective or another Adverb; as,
He speaks loudly (speaks=Verb. Speaks how?)
She is very good (good=Adjective. How good?)
He talks too loudly (loudly=Adverb. How loudly?)
A Preposition is a word which joins Nouns and Pronouns to other words; as, The book is on the table. He is in the room. The cat is under the table.
A Conjunction is a word used to join words or groups of words together; as, Two and two make four. He is bad but you are good.
An Interjection is only a cry. It is a sound or a noise a person makes when he is excited, to express some strong feeling. It is not an important Part of Speech: Oh! Hallo! Hurrah!
