For this activity please reply to the following questions:
1. Why do we need language?
2. What do you think is the most important use of language?
3. If you found yourself in a country where you didn’t understand a word of the local language, what would you miss most?
4. Examples of sentences with relative clauses
Both long and short versions of sentence structures are quite common – have a closer look at newspaper articles, especially headlines, and you’ll find lots of examples. It would be great if you could post example sentences on the discussion board, together with details of where you found them.
