My chinese student tends to drop the verb "to be" when followed by an adjective. I've read about this problem in Learner English by Michael Swan, but I can't find any activities which I could use to help this student.
Has anyone got any ideas?
Yes, I agree an example always helps. Here are a few examples:
I will 35 years old
I think Leeds too small
I wasn't a noisy person and quite shy
Hope these explain the problem.
Thanks, but it's my student who has the problem. I know how the sentences should have been formed.
What I am looking for are some activities to improve my student's ability to remember and also realise she must use the verb "to be" with predicative adjectives.
