There is a student who has come to my lesson, he looks a nice guy but cares too much about the kinds of the sentence patterns. You might have heard of it if you are an English learner and I am one of them but never really minded. "What type of sentence is this?" he said. Within the two lessons we had. The patterns strongly depend on each verb but I opened my trustworthy grammar book and read the part if I would find the good reason I should be able to know which is which. Conclusion, I don't think categorizing all the sentences is just a waste of time and unnecessary...But he gave me a good motive to study the grammar book, I appreciate this point!
