Adjective Clauses (English)

Course Information

This is an open course in adjective clauses of English grammar. It starts with a lesson on the basics of adjectives and then moves to a lesson on the basics of clauses. Then we put those things together and learn about adjective clauses. Finally, we learn how to reduce an adjective clause to make an adjective phrase. If you already understand adjectives and clauses, you can skip those topics, but they also may be useful to review before starting the more difficult material.
