MOOD


We all know that as humans, we can experience different moods. A mood is a temporary state of mind or feeling. We may be amused, cranky, shocked, relaxed, optimistic or frustrated. The list goes on and on. But did you know that VERBS have moods as well?

What? Verbs can be giddy, irritated or perplexed?

No. Verbs have moods in a different sense. Read on to understand what moods a verb can have, what they mean and examples of how to use them.

A verb “mood” is the form that a verb takes to show the manner in which it is being used. There are three of them we will consider:

1) Indicative Mood
2) Imperative Mood
3) Subjunctive Mood

INDICATIVE MOOD

You use this verb mood when you wish to state a fact or ask a question.

Example:

He is cooking dinner.
Is he cooking dinner?

IMPERATIVE MOOD


You use this verb mood to express a command or a request.

Example:

Cook dinner!
Please cook dinner.

SUBJUNCTIVE MOOD


You use this verb mood to show a wish or doubt. Although this is a major verb mood in the English language, it is slowly being replaced other moods or specific tenses.

Example:

I suggest that Bill cook dinner.
I suggest that Bill be asked to cook dinner.
If I were Bill, I would cook dinner. --> This is being replaced in spoken English by the past tense “If I was Bill….”

English grammar can be complicated. But little by little, you can learn the “ins and outs” of this beautiful language. So let’s improve YOUR mood by practicing the verb moods in a class together!

Hi there! My name is Stephanie and I live in California, USA. I lived for a couple of years in the Dominican Republic and four years in Italy. I have been teaching English online for about one year but teaching in general for over 20 years. I am certified to teach English through ACCREDITAT, certificate #100-17087. I have enjoyed teaching people from many Asian countries and I would like to expand my teaching experiences to those of all countries. English is such an important language and I love to part of someone's journey to becoming a "native-like" speaker. I love having fun when teaching English. However, I can be adaptable to whatever style of learning each student prefers. I love to engage in free-talk, teach English idioms and focus on proper pronunciation and intonation. I hope to have the opportunity to prove to you my value as your one-on-one teacher! See you soon!
