How to structure a sentence in English

As we have already mentioned, the order that a sentence must take in English is the following: subject + verb + object, in Spanish it is totally indifferent, but in English not, let’s see an example:

    • Mary likes flowers (Mary likes flowers), subject + verb + object, but you can’t interchange the order and say “flowers likes Mary”
    • The personal “a” is obviated in English, example: John kissed Rose (John kissed Rose) Rose is the “object” in the sentence, she is the one who receives the action of the verb, the personal “a” is not necessary, it would be a mistake say John kissed to Rose
    • In Spanish a question is asked only by changing intonation, in English, to formulate a question you need an auxiliary verb, the auxiliary verb used in the present simple and past simple tense is “to do”, also used for negation
    • For the subjects I, you, we, they = do, she, he, it = does, the past tense is “did” for all subjects
  • The structure to ask in English is like this: auxiliary + subject + verb and an object if there is one, for example, you eat apple (you eat apple) to ask is: Do you eat apple? (you eat an apple?)
  • In affirmative sentences the verb must be conjugated accordingly, but when using the auxiliary do or does to formulate a question, the verb will be in infinity
  • For negative sentences: subject + auxiliary + verb, as follows: you don’t like my mom’s food (not like the food my mom)
