There’s currently little routine to my life. Business needs are such that I travel very frequently and consequently work irregular hours. This leaves little room for me to participate in any sporting activities. However, I do like to keep myself fit and healthy and, if at all possible, I take the opportunity to go for a walk in the morning before I start work. This helps to wake me up, get some oxygen into my brain and I also use the time to think through the day ahead of me and what it is that I need to achieve. I’m aware that there’s a lot less travel involved in this job so this means I may have more opportunity in the future to play tennis again.
A rule in grammar is a generalization. It is a formula that one makes to account for how a given grammatical construction usually behaves. A rule is not necessary true in every instance. It is generally true. Don't be concerned if you see or hear something that does not coincide with a rule.
What is a noun? A noun is a person, place, thing, quality, animal, idea or activity.
Subject is the agent of the sentence in active voice; it is the person or thing that does the action of the sentence, and it normally procedes the verb.
NOTE: Every sentence in English must have a subject. A subject may be a single Noun.
A verb is an action part of speech. It can also express a state of being, or the relationship between two things. It is most powerful when following a noun.
Example: He LIKE her. Verbs are the most complicated part of speech because they can sometimes become nouns, depending on their use.
NOTE: Every sentence in English must have a verb.
A transitive verb has two characteristics. First, it is an action verb, expressing a doable activity like kick, want, paint, write, eat, clean, etc. Second, it must have a direct object, something or someone who receives the action of the verb.
Here are some examples of transitive verbs:
Sylvia kicked Juan under the table.
Kicked = transitive verb; Juan = direct object.
Pattern 1. Subject is usually (but not always) the first element in a sentence.
What is an object?
An object in grammar is a part of a sentence. It refers to someone or something involved in the subject's "performance" of the verb. It is what the verb is being done to. As an example, the following sentence is given:
Pattern 2. Object at the sentence.
There are two types of objects: direct and indirect objects:
A direct object will follow a transitive verb [a type of action verb]. Direct objects can be nouns, pronouns, phrases, or clauses.
If you can identify the subject and verb in a sentence, then finding the direct object—if one exists—is easy.
Just remember this simple formula:
Subject + Verb + what? or who? = Direct Object
Pattern 3. Direct Object, that follows the verb.
|The professor||wants||to retire|
An indirect object answers the question "to whom?", "for whom?", "for what?"...
An indirect object is the recipient of the direct object, or an otherwise affected participant in the event. There must be a direct object for an indirect object to be placed in a sentence. In other words an indirect object cannot exist without a direct object.
Pattern 4. Indirect Object and Direct Object at the sentence.
|Subject||Verb||Indirect Object||Direct Object|
|The old man||gave||the children||some money|
|My uncle||sent||me||a present|
Adjuncts are syntactically peripheral to the rest of the sentence. They may occur at the beginning and at the end of a sentence, and they may occur in all three of the patterns above:
Pattern 5. Adjunct.
|(Adjunct)||Subject||Verb||Indirect Object||Direct Object||(Adjunct)|
|Usually||David||sings||in the bath|
|Unfortunately||he professor||wants||to retire||this year|
|At the start of the trial||the judge||showed||the jury||the photographs||in a private chamber|
Pattern 5 is essentially a conflation of the other three, with Adjuncts added. We have bracketed the Adjuncts to show that they are optional. Strictly speaking, Objects are also optional, since they are only required by monotransitive and ditransitive verbs, as in the examples  and  above.

Img. 1. Personality Types
According to Carl Gustav Jung's theory of psychological types,...
people can be characterized by their preference of general attitude:
1. Extraverted (E) vs. Introverted (I),
their preference of one of the two functions of perception:
2. Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N),
and their preference of one of the two functions of judging:
3. Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F)
The three areas of preferences introduced by Jung are dichotomies (i.e. bipolar dimensions where each pole represents a different preference).
Jung also proposed that in a person one of the four functions above is dominant – either a function of perception or a function of judging.
Isabel Briggs Myers, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, proposed to see the judging-perceiving relationship as a fourth dichotomy influencing personality type:
4. Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P)
The first criterion, Extraversion – Introversion, signifies the source and direction of a person’s energy expression. An extravert’s source and direction of energy expression is mainly in the external world, while an introvert has a source of energy mainly in their own internal world.
The second criterion, Sensing – Intuition, represents the method by which someone perceives information. Sensing means that a person mainly believes information he or she receives directly from the external world. Intuition means that a person believes mainly information he or she receives from the internal or imaginative world.
The third criterion, Thinking – Feeling, represents how a person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic. Feeling means that, as a rule, he or she makes a decision based on emotion, i.e. based on what they feel they should do.
The fourth criterion, Judging – Perceiving, reflects how a person implements the information he or she has processed. Judging means that a person organizes all of his life events and, as a rule, sticks to his plans. Perceiving means that he or she is inclined to improvise and explore alternative options.

Interviewer: From looking at your CV, it seems that you studied at the University of Birmingham. Can you tell me a little about what you studied?
Candidate: No problem. I studied there for 4 years. I did English Language as my undergraduate degree. I enjoyed it very much and my high final grade demonstrates that. But it was an academic degree. So in order to improve my job prospects, when I graduated I did a master's in Business Organisation, which was very vocational. As part of my master's, I did a work placement in the human resources department of MacDonalds during the winter term, which lasted about 3 months. It was a very rewarding experience.
All the courses in the master's were very practical or vocational, like for example courses on employment law and business administration. In fact, my thesis was on employment law in the retail sector. I enjoyed everything about the master's and I got a very high final grade.
After that, I decided that I didn't want to do a PHD, I wanted to start my career and use what I'd learnt in the real world.
Interviewer: Excellent, and what about at school?
Candidate: I studied at Skipton Secondary School in Yorkshire. I passed all my A-levels with high grades. In addition, I did a lot of extracurricular activities like being secretary of the drama club, a very rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Interviewer: Now…. would you please tell me about your educational background?
Candidate: Well… after leaving senior high school in 2000, I continued my study at the University of Birmingham. I was admitted in the economics faculty, majoring in management.
Interviewer: I see. And when did you graduate from?
Candidate: I graduated from University in May 2005. So actually I’m a fresh graduate. To complete my final task, I did a research in Pertamina Oil Company and then wrote a thesis entitled “The management of human resources to promote work productivity”. Based on my grade point average I was chosen as one of the best students from economics faculty.
Interviewer: It sounds convincing.
Candidate: Thank you. Besides attending classes in the university, I also took some courses like English, French and computer. I am sure that my skills on those languages and computer will surely support my work later in your company.
Interviewer: Yes, I hope so.
It was conversation classes.
