In Level 2 we introduce 'Location Chunks' - these are places where the 'verb' takes place.
In Beginner we learned the verb 'go' which has locations, but we did not call these 'Location Chunks'. Why? Let's look.
I went to the park.
I = subject
went = past tense of the verb 'go'
to = preposition
the = determiner
park = object / location
I would not say 'the park' is a 'location chunk' because, without it, the sentence doesn't make sense.
I went to
Let's change the verb to 'play'. What did you play? Let's say 'football'.
I played football.
I = subject
played = past tense of the verb 'play'
football = object (what you played)
Now, we can add a 'location chunk' because the sentence makes sense without the location.
I played football in the park.
I played football at school.
I played football in the gym.
The sentence is:
I read a crime thriller.
Now, let's + LOCATION CHUNKS:
I read a crime thriller at the library.
I read a crime thriller on the bus.
I read a crime thriller at home.
I drank a cocktail.
+ LOCATION CHUNK
I drank a cocktail on the beach.
I drank a cocktail in a bar.
I drank a cocktail in my house.
