Location Chunks

Updated: May 29, 2020

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.


Example 1


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.


Example 2


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.
