2.en.54 Exam: 22nd February

Exam.

Today you did the exam of the latest posts that had appeared in the blog.  Here follow some instructions about self-correcting what you did in class.

  • Question V has to be completed at home as you did not have enough time to answer all the questions in one hour.
  • Answer all the questions again and copy your answers in your notebook.
  • Every student will be responsible for uploading the answer of one of the exam questions to the blog.
  • Remember to mention the post where you had to look for the answer, this way you will be aware of the importance of the blog as a study tool.

      Peptoni,
      different is an adjective, and you have written it in plural. No plural in adjectives in English.
      Vocabulary. You did not check the spelling
      In your house you surely have three different containers, “three different garbage cans”, to separate waste, not “three garbages”. Check a monolingual dictionary.

      • mloredo Says:

        Tatiana, you must be careful with your spelling: Look at the way “sustainability” is written in the post, then, check the way you have written it and correct it.
        Similarly, check agreement between subject and verb: buses and trains are plural, and you wrote “works” as if it was third person singular.
