On this week we had 2 sessions in English class, the first session is on Thursday and the second session is on Friday. This week we reviewed about Conditional Sentences, learned a new topic about Commentary Writing, and did a quiz on Friday.
At first session on Monday, we had some reviewed about Conditional Sentences or also known as If-Clauses. Conditional Sentences are used to express the action in the main clause (without if) and in a certain condition (in the clause with if). There are three types of Conditional Sentences:
Type 0: a statements about the real world, and often refers to general truths, such as scientific facts.
“If you heat ice, it melts.”
Type 1: possible and also very likely that the condition will be fulfilled
“If I find her address, I’ll send her an invitation.”
Type 2: possible but very unlikely, that the condition will be fulfilled
“If I found her address, I would send her an invitation.”
Type 3: impossible that the condition will be fulfilled because it refers to the past
“If I had found her address, I would have sent her an invitation.”
After we reviewed about Conditional Sentences, we started to talk about the Commentary writing. In this period Mrs. Evi told us to make a small group and discussed to make a definition of Commentary Writing in our opinion. My group has consisted of me, Safira and Karin. In our opinion, Commentary Writing is where the reader’s comment base on the structure and the content of the text, like the style and language on the writer’s purpose, attitude, particular aspects or focuses.
On final session on Friday we had some quiz about Conditional Sentences and we only should do 4 questions out of 5 questions. After the quiz, we had a review about what just we learned on week 2 and had an assignment to read about commentary writing from our English book.
This week gave me such an experience and telling me on how important to learned more about English. I hope next week I can get more understanding and be more enthusiastic in English class!
