Defining relative clauses

with 7 comments

Watch the following video from PodEnglish focusing on defining relative clauses…

Wait a minute! But what is a defining relative clause? You might not know this but we use them every single day, everywhere, anytime…

Would you mind please leaving a comment below and answer any of these questions?:

  • A day when you made a big decision?
  • A person who had a big influence on you as a child?
  • Someone (whom) you hate|love and why?
  • A place where you like going when you need to switch off?

And now watch the video and the clauses they use in their dialogue to define the person they’re talking about
