Instructions and Help about Can Form 2220 Agreeing

Hello everyone this is Andrew at Crown Academy of English today we are doing a lesson on how to agree with people and in particular I am going to teach you how to say that something is the same for you or for somebody else okay so let's get started so here is a friend of mine called David and David and I are having a conversation David says I am going to the cinema and I say so am I now this means that I am saying to David that I am going to the cinema - alright I am also going to the cinema I can also say so is Jane and that means I am telling David that Jane is also going to the cinema I am agreeing with him I can play the piano so can I so can my brother I have been to London three times so have I so have my parents I am hungry so am I and so is Mark okay so this on the right this is the grammar structure that I want you to learn and to form this structure we must look at the structure of the first sentence so we must look at what David is saying and if you notice everything that David is saying everything is in the affirmative so since it is in the affirmative and we are agreeing with him then we must start our sentence with the word so okay so means that we are agreeing with someone in the affirmative and we can also notice that in David's sentence there is an auxiliary verb this is the auxiliary verb is the verb to be and it goes it is in front of the main verb so since David uses an auxiliary verb we must use the same auxiliary verb when we reply we must also use the verb to be and we put it after the word so and the verb to be it must agree with the subject that we are using and so here the subject is I and so we put the verb to be in the first person singular which is um so that is how we have so arm I and for Jane it is so is Jane okay it's the same auxiliary verb it's the verb to D but this time our subject is Jane now Jane is the third person singular so we put the verb to be in the third person singular which is is and it's the same for the others here is the auxiliary verb can and so we use can in our reply and again we make it agree with the subject camp I have so have I so have my parents I am hungry so am I so is Mark okay so the rule is when we are agreeing with an affirmative which has an auxiliary verb then the form is so then the auxiliary verb and then the subject okay so that is the first rule now let us look at the second rule similar situation here is Caroline I am talking to Caroline Caroline says I like watching television I say so do I so does Mark I want to go to London so do I so does my brother I eat bread with every meal so do I so do my parents I walk to university today so did I so did Mark okay again this is the grammar structure I want you to learn again Caroline is talking in the affirmative and so we always use the word so but this time Caroline does not use any auxiliary verbs she only uses main verbs all right so since there are no auxiliary verbs in our reply then we use the verb to do and again we the verb to do we make it agree with the subject all right so here the subject is I and so we put do in the first person singular here it is mark is the subject and so the third person singular of do is does that is why we say so does mark we do not say so do mark so do does so do i so does my brother so do i so do my parents so did I now this one is a little bit different this time we use the past participle because Caroline used the past tense she said I walked so we have to put the verb do in the past tense so that is why we say so did I past participle and it's the same when we talk about mark so did mark alright so the rule here is when we are are agreeing with an affirmative without auxiliary verbs then we say so then the verb to do and then the subject okay here is Peter I am talking to Peter Peter says I am NOT going out tonight neither am I and neither is Jane I can't hear the music neither can i and neither can Marc I have never been to London neither have I neither have my parents I am not hungry neither am i and neither is Sarah all right so here this is the negative so Peter is using the negative in all of his sentences and we are agreeing with him so when we want to agree with somebody who is using the negative then we start the sentence with the word neither all right that is pronounced neither and then it and then it is exactly the same as the first rule so Peter is using auxiliary verbs and so we must also use auxiliary verbs in the correct form in the correct conjugation okay we must make the axillary verb agree with the subject neither am i neither is Jane can neither can Mark have neither have I neither have my parents and neither am i and neither is Sarah so
