  • This is a reading skill employed to obtain the general idea of a text,to find out the writer's point of view and to see how to contents in a passage are arrange.
  • When a text or a passage is too long and we have limited amount of time,we use this reading technique.
  • The speed in which we read is three or  four times faster than the speed of normal reading.
  • when skimming,look for key words and phrases,the headlings or sub-headlings for the general idea of the passage.
  • In short,directly look to main idea and search to it.
2. Non-Linear

-usually in table,graph,chart or point
-we need to use scanning technique.

What is scanning??
  • This is a selective reading skills to locate facts and asnwers to specific questions.

7th February 2011

hello guys..
welcome back to uitm!

ok,ok..Back to our discussion about adverb.

What is an ADVERB??

An adverb is a word that tells us more about a verb. It "qualifies" or "modifies" a verb (The man ran quickly). In the following examples, the adverb is in bold and the verb that it modifies is in italics.

  • Adlina speaks loudly. (How does Adlina speak?)

  • Afterwards she smoked a cigarette. (When did she smoke?)

  • Atiqah lives locally. (Where does Atiqah live?)

  • But adverbs can also modify adjectives (Tara is really beautiful), or even other adverbs (It works very well). Look at these examples:
    • Modify an adjective:
      - He is really handsome. (How handsome is he?)
      - That was extremely kind of you.
    • Modify another adverb:
      - She drives incredibly slowly. (How slowly does she drive?)
      - He drives extremely fast.

    Note that adverbs have other functions, too. They can:
    • Modify a whole sentence: Obviously, I can't know everything.
    • Modify a prepositional phrase: It's immediately inside the door.
    We make many adverbs by adding -ly to an adjective, for example:
    • quick (adjective) > quickly (adverb)
    • careful (adjective) > carefully (adverb)
    • beautiful (adjective) > beautifully (adverb)
    There are some basic rules about spelling for -ly adverbs. See the table below:

    Adjective endingdo thisadjectiveadverb
    most adjectivesadd -lyquick
    -able or -iblechange -e to -yregrettable
    -ychange -y to -ilyhappyhappily
    -icchange -ic to -icallyeconomiceconomically

    But not all words that end in -ly are adverbs. The words friendly, lovely, lonely and neighbourly, for example, are all adjectives.
    And some adverbs have no particular form. Look at these examples:
    • well, fast, very, never, always, often, still
    Note that the form of an adverb can also change to make it comparative or superlative.

    Kinds of Adverbs

    Here you can see the basic kinds of adverbs.

    Adverbs of Manner

    Adverbs of Manner tell us the manner or way in which something happens. They answer the question "how?". Adverbs of Manner mainly modify verbs.
    • He speaks slowly. (How does he speak?)
    • They helped us cheerfully. (How did they help us?)
    • Ahmad drives his cars fast. (How does Ahmad drive his cars?)
    We normally use Adverbs of Manner with dynamic (action) verbs, not with stative or state verbs.
    • He ran fast. She came quickly. They worked happily.

    Adverbs of Place

    Adverbs of Place tell us the place where something happens. They answer the question "where?". Adverbs of Place mainly modify verbs.
    • Please sit here. (Where should I sit?)
    • They looked everywhere. (Where did they look?)
    • Two cars were parked outside. (Where were two cars parked?)

    Adverbs of Time

    Adverbs of Time tell us something about the time that something happens. Adverbs of Time mainly modify verbs.
    They can answer the question "when?":
    • He came yesterday. (When did he come?)
    • I want it now. (When do I want it?)
    Or they can answer the question "how often?":
    • They deliver the newspaper daily. (How often do they deliver the newspaper?)
    • We sometimes watch a movie. (How often do we watch a movie?)

    Adverbs of Degree

    Adverbs of Degree tell us the degree or extent to which something happens. They answer the question "how much?" or "to what degree?". Adverbs of Degree can modify verbs, adjectives and other adverbs.
    • She entirely agrees with him. (How much does she agree with him?)
    • Mary is very beautiful. (To what degree is Mary beautiful? How beautiful is Mary?)
    • He drove quite dangerously. (To what degree did he drive dangerously? How dangerously did he drive?)

    Adverb Position

    When an adverb modifies a verb, there are usually 3 possible positions within the sentence or clause:

    1. FRONT - before subjectNowI will read a book.
    2. MID - between subject + verbIoftenread books.
    3. END - after verb/objectI read bookscarefully.

    When an adverb modifies an adjective or another adverb, it usually goes in front of the word that it modifies, for example:

    She gave him areallydirtylook.
    Wequiteoftenstudy English.

    The position of an adverb often depends on the kind of adverb (manner, place, time, degree). The following table gives you some guidelines for placement based on the kind of adverb. 

    Warning: these are guidelines only, and not complete. There are many exceptions.

    What is PRONOUN?

    A pronoun can replace a noun or another pronoun. You use pronouns like "he," "which," "none," and "you" to make your sentences less cumbersome and less repetitive.
    Grammarians classify pronouns into several types, including the personal pronoun, the demonstrative pronoun, the interrogative pronoun, the indefinite pronoun, the relative pronoun, the reflexive pronoun, and the intensive pronoun.

    Example :

    I              Me         Mine
    She          Her        Hers
    He           Him        His        
    We          Us          Ours
    They        Them      Theirs
    It             It           Its
    You          You        Yours

    Personal Pronouns

    A personal pronoun refers to a specific person or thing and changes its form to indicate person, number, gender, and case.

    Subjective Personal Pronouns

    A subjective personal pronoun indicates that the pronoun is acting as the subject of the sentence. The subjective personal pronouns are "I," "you," "she," "he," "it," "we," "you," "they."
    In the following sentences, each of the highlighted words is a subjective personal pronoun and acts as the subject of the sentence:
    I was glad to find the bus pass in the bottom of the green knapsack.
    You are surely the strangest child I have ever met.

    Objective Personal Pronouns

    An objective personal pronoun indicates that the pronoun is acting as an object of a verb, compound verb, preposition, or infinitive phrase. The objective personal pronouns are: "me," "you," "her," "him," "it," "us," "you," and "them."
    In the following sentences, each of the highlighted words is an objective personal pronoun:
    Seamus stole the selkie's skin and forced her to live with him.
    The objective personal pronoun "her" is the direct object of the verb "forced" and the objective personal pronoun "him" is the object of the preposition "with."
    After reading the pamphlet, Judy threw it into the garbage can.

    Possessive Personal Pronouns

    A possessive pronoun indicates that the pronoun is acting as a marker of possession and defines who owns a particular object or person. The possessive personal pronouns are "mine," "yours," "hers," "his," "its," "ours," and "theirs." Note that possessive personal pronouns are very similar to possessive adjectives like "my," "her," and "their."
    In each of the following sentences, the highlighted word is a possessive personal pronoun:
    The smallest gift is mine.

    Demonstrative Pronouns

    A demonstrative pronoun points to and identifies a noun or a pronoun. "This" and "these" refer to things that are nearby either in space or in time, while "that" and "those" refer to things that are farther away in space or time.
    The demonstrative pronouns are "this," "that," "these," and "those." "This" and "that" are used to refer to singular nouns or noun phrasesand "these" and "those" are used to refer to plural nouns and noun phrases. Note that the demonstrative pronouns are identical todemonstrative adjectives, though, obviously, you use them differently. It is also important to note that "that" can also be used as a relative pronoun.
    In the following sentences, each of the highlighted words is a demonstrative pronoun:
    This must not continue.

    Interrogative Pronouns

    An interrogative pronoun is used to ask questions. The interrogative pronouns are "who," "whom," "which," "what" and the compounds formed with the suffix "ever" ("whoever," "whomever," "whichever," and "whatever"). Note that either "which" or "what" can also be used as an interrogative adjective, and that "who," "whom," or "which" can also be used as a relative pronoun.
    You will find "who," "whom," and occasionally "which" used to refer to people, and "which" and "what" used to refer to things and to animals.
    "Who" acts as the subject of a verb, while "whom" acts as the object of a verb, preposition, or a verbal.
    The highlighted word in each of the following sentences is an interrogative pronoun:
    Which wants to see the dentist first?
    "Which" is the subject of the sentence.

    Relative Pronouns

    You can use a relative pronoun is used to link one phrase or clauseto another phrase or clause. The relative pronouns are "who," "whom," "that," and "which." The compounds "whoever," "whomever," and "whichever" are also relative pronouns.
    You can use the relative pronouns "who" and "whoever" to refer to the subject of a clause or sentence, and "whom" and "whomever" to refer to the objects of a verb, a verbal or a preposition.
    In each of the following sentences, the highlighted word is a relative pronoun.
    You may invite whomever you like to the party.
    The relative pronoun "whomever" is the direct object of the compound verb "may invite."

    Indefinite Pronouns

    An indefinite pronoun is a pronoun referring to an identifiable but not specified person or thing. An indefinite pronoun conveys the idea of all, any, none, or some.
    The most common indefinite pronouns are "all," "another," "any," "anybody," "anyone," "anything," "each," "everybody," "everyone," "everything," "few," "many," "nobody," "none," "one," "several," "some," "somebody," and "someone." Note that some indefinite pronouns can also be used as indefinite adjectives.
    The highlighted words in the following sentences are indefinite pronouns:
    Many were invited to the lunch but only twelve showed up.
    Here "many" acts as the subject of the compound verb "were invited."

    Reflexive Pronouns

    You can use a reflexive pronoun to refer back to the subject of the clause or sentence.
    The reflexive pronouns are "myself," "yourself," "herself," "himself," "itself," "ourselves," "yourselves," and "themselves." Note each of these can also act as an intensive pronoun.
    Each of the highlighted words in the following sentences is a reflexive pronoun:
    Diabetics give themselves insulin shots several times a day.

    Intensive Pronouns

    An intensive pronoun is a pronoun used to emphasise its antecedent. Intensive pronouns are identical in form to reflexive pronouns.

    Pre-Writing Technique-Thesis Statement

    24th January 2011

    What’s a thesis statement????
    -After you have brainstormed and you have some main ideas of what you would like to write in your essay, you can begin thinking about writing a thesis statement.
    -A thesis statement is a complete sentence that contains one main idea.  This idea controls the content of the entire essay.  A thesis statement that contains subpoints also helps a reader know how the essay will be organized. Look at the introductory paragraph below.  See if you can identify the thesis statement and subpoints.
    Example :
    When I was young, I always knew that I wanted to become a teacher someday.  When I played, I would often gather my dolls together and pretend to teach them how to do math problems or how to read a book.  As I grew older, my desire to become an ESL teacher became clearer as I did some volunteer teaching overseas and in the United States.  As I look back on my reasons for becoming a teacher, there are three reasons that stand out.  They are: my love for the English language, my innate interest in how people learn, and my desire to help other people .
    As I look back on my reasons for becoming a teacher, there are three reasons that stand out.
    The thesis statement contains the main idea that controls the content of the essay.

    They are: my love for the English language, my innate interest in how people learn, and my desire to help other people . -

    Subpoints in the thesis or nearby help the reader know how the essay will be organized

    can change to > There are some reasons why I want to becoming a teacher

    Ice Breaking Session

    On 4th January 2011 my beloved lecturer,Misz Zue told us to choose a partner for next class.My classmate and I have something to do..We need to choose one person of my classmate and need to introduce each other..After class of Bel120,we all make a small meeting and agreed to choose one male and one female as partner..I choose Echa as my partner after all male in my classroom finishing choose their partner..Well,my classmate have only eight male in class so,others have no choice and must choose girl-girl as partner..

    10th January 2011

    Misz Zue told to class that my presentation is the best..My pronunciation and grammar have no wrong and she can understand what i'm talking about..Yeay! Thank you Misz Zue! :P
    Actually,i do my research (ask my friend) how to use right grammar and said in English correctly..Thanks alot to my friend,Noor Sufia Binti Shukor and her friend.( I don't know her name,Sorry :P)

    Lets see what i said in class to introduce my partner,Echa.

    Assalamualaikum w.b.t and a very good morning to my respected Lecturer,Miss Zuraidah Binti Sumery and to all my fellow friends.Today i would want to introduce my lovely and cutie friend which also known as my twin .Twin? Is that so? Well let us see the differences between us.Firstly,we have the same name,"Aishah"! And at the same time we have the same nickname too which is "Sha".But to prevent confusion among our classmate we called her as Echa.By the way,her real name is Nur Aisyah Binti Mohd Noor and was born on 22nd August of 1992.Her current home town is in Johor Bahru and received her education in SMK Taman Johor Jaya 2 and then continue her study to form 6 at SIGS just for a short term education.My first impression when i look at her I was shocked when i got to know that she addicted to eating burger.Can u imagine? Someone in her size that is skinny would like to eating burger? Besides that she love pink a lot and to me pink colour is suitable to her because it represents her altitude which is shy and quiet girl."The Quenn of Silent",ok..She is the 2nd child from 4siblings.And lastly she tell me that if 1day she have chance to choose a boy she wants a guy who is simple but definitely not childish

    That's All..TQ~ ^__^
