  • In this lesson, we're going  to focus on relative clauses.

  • Relative clauses are another  complicated area of English grammar.

  • In this video we focus on just one issue.  

  • I'm going to show you how to combine two  simple sentences into one complex sentence.

  • Let's look at two types.

  • Notice that the object of the first sentence,  

  • 'a book', means the same thing as 'itthe subject of the second sentence.

  • To make a relative clause,  

  • just change the second subject torelative pronoun - in this case 'which'.

  • The second type is a little more complex.

  • Look at this example.

  • Notice that the first object 'some moneymeans the same thing as the second object 'it'.

  • Notice what happens. 'It' changes to 'whichand must also move to the front of the clause.

  • Remember to delete 'it'.

  • A common mistake is to do this.

  • Now it's your turn to practice.

  • Combine the following two sentences and then watch  the extract from Fortune to check your answer.

  • Now, I need you to think very carefully. Do  you remember if Jenny's phone was in the house.

  • I think so. It's usually with her purse which  is always on the kitchen counter but why?

  • Okay, are you ready to check the answer?

  • So let's review.

  • In this lesson, we've looked at  two types of relative clause:  

  • the object-subject combination  and the object-object combination.

  • However, it's important to remember that  there are other variations and complexities.

In this lesson, we're going  to focus on relative clauses.
