Basic English is written with the alien from outer space in mind: someone who comes to our planet knowing absolutely nothing about our languages or cultures. It covers in depth those ideas, rules and subject matters that native English speakers take for granted, such as:
The use of the question mark.
The use of the full stop.
The use of white spaces between words.
Start every sentence with a capital letter.
Good morning: when and why we say it.
Good afternoon: when and why we say it.
Good evening: when and why we say it.
Basic English by Patrick Carpen may also be considered “Primary School English”. It is for those little ones who want to go a bit faster than the rest. They can use these articles to climb the ladder of knowledge.
Basic English is also good for reinforcement. You may know something subconciously, but never took the time to become aware of it. By becoming aware of these simple ideas, you can build on them and retain a greater learning capacity.
Basic English is also written with the “English as a Foreign Language” student in mind. There are some concepts that must be spoon-fed to the foreigner.
Basic English is good for everyone. You may be surprised that even adults don’t very basic rules and concepts about the English Language. Hence the need for Basic English.
