    It's quite an easy task - we all use the structres every day!

    A sentence with one main clause is called a simple sentence:
    She goes to school.

    A sentence with two or more main clauses is called a compound sentence:
    She goes to school, but she doesn't like it.

    A sentence with a main clause and one or more subordinate clauses is called a complex sentence. In the example below, the subordinate clause is in green; the main clause is in blue:
    When she leaves school, she's going to be an actress.
