Relative Pronouns & Clauses - English Grammar Lesson

Are you sometimes wondering if you should say 'the person who' or 'the person that'?

Are you unsure when to use 'whom' or 'whose', or 'which' or 'what'?

Then join me in this lesson for a complete review of relative pronouns.

Hello and welcome everyone. This is Minoo at Anglo-Link.

Today, we're going to review the

use of words like 'whom', 'who', 'whose', 'which' and 'that'

when they're used as relative pronouns.

A relative pronoun is used after a noun to make it clear which person or

thing we're talking about. The information that follows the pronoun is

contained in what we call a relative clause. There is often some confusion

about which word to use in different situations.

Sometimes, we want to give information about a person, sometimes about an object.

Sometimes, it is about something that belongs to the person or the object.

So, in this lesson, I will clarify the usage of relative pronouns and also

explain when you can drop these pronouns. By the end of this lesson you will have

learned how to use these words correctly when you speak and when you write.

So, when you're ready we can begin!
