English 101: Singular and Plural Forms in Measurement

Sometimes, it is really very hard to use the singular or plural form of words used in measurement such as foot, peso, dollar, year, minute, etc.

As a general rule, use the singular form of the words when they are used as ADJECTIVES (Pang-uri in Filipino); when the words are used as NOUNS (Panggalan in Filipino) use their plural form.



Examples:
1. Kris Aquino signed a three - year contract with ABS-CBN. (adjective)
2. His employment contract abroad is for two years. (noun)


3. Ana has a twenty-dollar bill. (adjective)
4. Watermelon costs three dollars a piece. (noun)

ALS A&E Test Schedule 2014

Hindi ko alam kung ako ay namamalikmata lamang pero hanggang ngayon ay hindi ko masilip sa webpurok ng DepEd kung mayroon na ba silang iskedyul na pagsusulit para sa Alternative Learning System (ALS) Accreditation & Equivalency (A&E) sa taong ito ng 2014.

Datirati kasi ay inaanunsyo na ito ng Kagawaran ng Edukasyon malayo pa ang mga araw ng pagsusulit. Sa taong ito ay tila nahuli sila ng abiso. Marami pa naman ang nagtatanong sa site na ito kung may schedule na raw.

Sa mga naging karanasan, tuwing October o November kada taon ginaganap ang ALS A&E exam. Kaya sa mga nagrereview para rito, maghanda-handa na at malapit na ito.

Kung paano makapagrerehistro, magtungo lamang sa mga District office ng DepEd. Maaari ring magtanong sa mga principal ng mga paaralang-bayan.

Essay Test

Para matulungan natin ang mga ibang kababayang kukuha ng pagsusulit sa susunod na pagkakataon, mangyari lamang na i-mensahe sa akin kung ano ang naging paksa ng sanaysay o essay sa nakaraang ALS A&E test. Hindi ito pandaraya dahil hindi naman ito ibibigay na muli. Bale gagawin lang itong halimbawa upang malaman ng ating mga kababayan kung paano sasagutin ang ganoong paksa.



Tulad nang nabanggit na, mahalagang maipasa ang essay part ng pagsusulit dahil baka ito ang maging dahilan upang hindi ninyo makamit ang inyong diploma mula sa ALS.

Magsanay tayo ng pagsulat ng sanaysay o essay.

Payo sa mga ALS Takers

Payo lang sa mga ALS takers na hindi pumasa sa nakaraang pagsusulit, hiwag po kayong mawalan ng pag-asa. Buhayin muli ang inyong pagnanasang makakuha ng diploma sa pamamagitan ng Alternative Learning System (ALS). Sa halip na magmukmok, saglit po tayong mag-isip at alamin ang kung saan at ano ang ating naging pagkukulandg sa pagrerebeisa at pag-aaral. Tanungin natin ang ating mga sarili:

1. Sapat ba ang inilaan kong oras sa pagrerebisa at pag-aaral?
2. Sapat ba ang aking paghahanda sa pagsusulit?
3. Ginagawa ko ba ang mga gawaing-bahay at mga pagsasanay na iniatang sa akin?
4. Humingi ba ako ng tulong sa aking guro, kaklase at kasambahay sa mga araling hindi ko masyadong maunawaan?
5. Anong parte ng pagsusulit o paksa ang hindi ko masyadong maintindihan?
6. Inuunawa ko ba ang paksa o kinakabisa lamang ang mga ito?

Kapag nalaman na natin ang ating mga pagkukulang sa pagrerebisa, pag-aaral at paghahanda, nararapat lamang na baguhin natin ang ating nakaraang istilo upang sa susunod na pagsusulit ay makapasa na tayo. Mainam din ang pag-aaral ng grupo para lubos na maunawan ang leksiyon.

Good luck sa susunod na pagsusulit ng ALS A&E sa taong ito!
