This study guide for Volume 2 of The English Tutor guides learners through each scene to review and apply simple and compound sentences; the first two types of sentences.


There are four kinds of sentence structures: simple sentences, compound sentences, complex sentences, and compound-complex sentences. In this video we are studying the first two kinds of sentences, simple and compound. Leading into a study of the structure and the necessary components of these sentences, we begin, in the first scene, with a review of the parts of speech.
