English Lesson: Seem & Suppose

Michael Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Happy seems a little tired today. I suppose she didn’t get much sleep last night. Happy loves to sleep and she seems to be in heaven when she is taking a nap. I like taking a nap too, but I can only do so on the weekends. Sometimes Happy takes a nap with me. When she does, she lies down at the foot of the bed. I suppose she is my guard dog!

When we think something is a certain way, we use seem and suppose. Do you know how to use these words? Read the paragraph above once more and then check today’s lesson.

Use seem + adjective

  • Happy seems tired today.
  • I gave Jane her birthday present and she seemed so happy.
  • I finished the report. Does it seem correct to you?

Use seem + to + be

  • Happy seems to be in heaven when she is taking a nap.
  • This train seems to be full.
  • I finished the report. Does it seem to be correct to you?

We usually use suppose + sentence:

  • I suppose she didn’t get much sleep last night.
  • I suppose she is my guard dog!
  • Do you suppose the supermarket is open late tonight?

Well, I suppose this is the end of our lesson here today. I hope this was helpful. What’s your request for a lesson here?
