Simple sentences

Wrapping up

See you next time

That's the end of this lesson about simple sentences—sentences that have only one action or process.

Where did the snippets come from?

We used snippets from a wide range of texts in this lesson.

Our checkpoint snippet came from The Martian by Andy Weir. In The Martian, astronaut Mark Watney is stranded on Mars and relies on his own ingenuity and resourcefulness to survive.
