Simple, Compound, & Complex

Simple Sentences

Simple Sentences needs one piece of information that makes sense on it's own.

EX: She changed the light bulb. She didn’t like fixing things

Compound Sentences

Compound Sentences needs two simple sentences and a conjunction.

Ex. She changed the light bulb but she didn't like fixing things.

Complex Sentences

Complex Sentences begin with a conjunction and the ideas are separated with a comma.


Ex: She was a great English teacher. She couldn't change a light bulb safely.

Then it changes to Although she was a great English teacher, she couldn't change a light bulb safely. We linked them and used a conjunction and a comma.
