名詞構文を使ってみよう

Noun Syntax
名詞構文で始めて講師と会話してみましょう。
名詞構文は、文に等しい内容を名詞を中心に置き換えた文のことを指します。ポイントは名詞を動詞っぽく置き換えるということ。 逆にいえば動詞、または形容詞を名詞に書き換えて、その前後に要素をつけ加えれば完成です。 He entered the university. ー彼は大学に入学した。 という文章も名詞構文として置き換えられますね。 【回答例】 His family was pleased with his entering the university. 彼の家族は、彼の大学入学を喜んだ。

One of my friends had a talk with a famous American actor in Tokyo. She was a good speaker of English so she could talk a lot with him. She hoped for the actor's further success because he had a great passion for acting.

1. one can HOPE FOR something
2. one can have passion FOR something
That is a wonderful response. American actors are really hard to come by. Did your friend learn anything from the meeting with the actor?

No, just she learned a little from the conversation, yet she noticed how great his personality was. Interestingly, the actor said he was an early riser so he usually went to bed around 9 o'clock. I think that successful people are tend to be a morning person.

1. place 'just' between the subject and the main verb
2. add 'at' before referring to the time
3. the verb is 'tend' erase 'are' as it is not placed in present simple
l completely agree with you, l think that waking up early gives someone an opportunity to start thinking more about their life before they start getting disturbed. Are you a morning person?

Yes, I am also an early riser. I usually wake up around 4 AM because I can most focus on my study around the time. We can get a lot of benefits from morning activities.

1. always add 'at' before telling the exact hour
2. studies definition: the work a student does at school
3. place 'the most' after the verb it modifies because superlative adverbs come after verbs
