    Grammar exercises SryanBruen

    This is a thread where I will post grammar exercises for you to do to practice for the grammar part of the question - also useful for the story & letter writing as for these over 90% of the marks is done on good grammar. Therefore, grammar is very important and you should be well prepared. I will not post any new exercises until at least a person posts their answers here.

      D'éirigh mé as an leaba, maidin chiúin a bhí ann. Bhí mé préachta leis an bhfuacht. Chuir mé mo chuid éadaí scoile orm. Chuaigh mé go dtí an chistin chun mo bhricfeasta a dhéan(?). D'ith mé arán donn agus calóga arbhair. Dhúisigh mo dheartháir i ndeireadh na dála ansin. Gan moille, rith mé go dtí an seomra folctha agus scuab mé mo fhiacla. Tar éis sin, thosaigh mé ag éisteacht le mo iPod agus bhí mé ar mo bhealach chun na scoile.

      Not so sure about where the déan is déan or rinne but I think this is a great idea

      All correct except for the Déan one, the answer to that is "Dhéanamh". As I said above ^ And any verbal nouns where needed. Thanks, I want all students - though I am a student myself, to have accurate grammar and get the highest marks possible.

      Complete the following sentences with a suitable verb.

      a) ___________ ar a seacht inné.

      b) ___________ an carr amárach má tá sé briste.

      c) ___________ mo chuid airgid sa bhanc dá mbeadh aon airgead agam!

      d) ___________ ar an teilifís gach oíche?

      e) ___________ an fhuinneog inné ach níl a fhios ag éinne cé a bhris í.
