Sentence Structure – Simple, Compound & Complex

Trainer’s Note
  •  Before you start off with the kinds of sentences, help the students in revising the previous lesson on clauses. 
  • Next begin explaining the kinds of sentences like: Simple, Compound and Complex. 
  • Define each of the sentence structure with its example. 
  • Now divide the classroom into two parts and ask the two groups to write three sentences each for Simple, Compound and Complex sentence. Next ask one student from each group to write the sentences on the board that each of their group has written together.  
  • Having been explained the sentence types, ask the students to complete the activity. 

Simple sentences

Simple sentences usually include one simple verb – subject agreement. These sentences are the most basic sentence type. 
Subject + verb + object. 
Ex: She sleeps all day. 
The Fried Rice tastes delicious. 

Compound sentences

Compound sentences can be the result of two simple sentences combined into one. They take a more creative turn, and are often a more interesting use of a sentence. Instead of using a string of short, simple sentences, try making more compound sentences. Compound sentences are split by a comma and conjunctions, and they usually have more than one subject – verb agreement.  The two parts of the sentence must relate to each other. 
Subject + verb + object (, conjunction) Subject + verb + object 
Conjunctions: for, nor, so, and, but, yet 
Ex: She sleeps all day, but still looks tired. 
The Cricket team tried hard to win, but lost the game. 

Complex sentences

Complex sentences consist of one independent clause joined to a dependent clause. In the instance of independent clauses, subordinators are also used. Independent clauses can come first or second in the sentence, however when a subordinator or relative pronoun comes first a comma is often not needed. 

Subordinators: although, because, since, after, when. 

Ex: Although I knew what to do I could not do it. 

Sentences that contain adjective clauses, and use relative pronouns, are also considered independent clauses, and thus must be joined to a dependent clause in order to form a complex sentence. 

Relative pronouns: who, that, whom 

Ex: The house where I grew up is in Kolkata. 

Ram returned the computer when he noticed it was damaged.
