Cleft Sentences

Next Video: The Passive Voice

Again, cleft sentences help us add emphasis in a sentence, but this time in a less formal way. And, what I love about cleft sentences is that once you know how to make them, you find that you can use them everywhere. They make wonderful topic sentences in essays, and can be used in Part 2 of EVERY speaking  test. 

In this video, we will learn:

  • what cleft sentences are and how they help us to emphasise parts of our speech
  • how to construct the THREE most common types of cleft sentences
  • how we can use these sentences in the IELTS exam
