The verbs "There is" and "There are", how to use the quantitatives "some" and "any", "much", "many" and "a lot of" and the interrogative pronouns "How much" and "How many". You will learn some verb tenses for the future like the Present Continuous and the structure "to be going to", the differences in use and grammar between the Present Simple and the Present Continuous, the modal verb "Can". You will also know how to create the Comparatives and Superlatives adjectives, and what to do when we want to say two verbs together.
