Hi, dear English learners. I hope you are doing well. In today’s blog entry, I want to look at 10 expressions starting with the auxiliary verb “be”. Most of these phrases, as a rule, express modality and have a structure of their own. Anyway, all ten expressions are very useful, so my best advice to you is to read their definitions and check how they are used in context, and then try to incorporate them into your everyday English by all means.
