We look at the building blocks of the English language: words. Every word belongs to one category or another, and sometimes more than one category. We call these categories parts of speech. There are 9 basic parts of speech: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, determiners, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. We talk about them one by one, with plenty of examples for using them in everyday life.
Nouns are usually the first words we learn. The good news is that with nouns, we don't have to worry about gender in English. We do, however, have to be aware of gerunds that act like nouns but look like verbs, and countable or uncountable nouns.
