Grammar ~ Conditional II

We are continuing the series of lessons on 'If clauses' or conditional sentences, by looking into the conditional II type. Please find the lesson on this topic outlined on the Conditional II page. I added the exercise for this lesson today, so please feel free to test your knowledge on these five little sentences.

Writing ~ Another 'Worrying' Session

Today I we have another example of worrying a piece of writing. Please find this on the Worrying Your Writing page. You will notice we have Example Two at the bottom of the page , with the actual lesson on the Worrying Your Writing (2) page. I hope you find it useful, those of you who wish to sharpen your writing skills in English.

Game of the Week ~ More Idioms

We have another vocabulary game today, based on idioms. Please find this quiz on the Idioms Game page.

This is a selection of self-standing idioms, with a choice of 4 answers of which you need to pick the right one.

This is what happens if you get it wrong - your choice turns red, but if you then try again, you get your answer confirmed in green on the same page. Observe there is no score or timer in this game, so just chill and prove your worth.

This is an example of a typical quiz entry:

And another one - You get the picture, right?

At the end there's nothing else than the announcement that the game is over, but you will be given the chance to either play again or select another game from the same website.

OK, it's your turn to play the game on the Idioms Game website. Have fun, as always!

This is it for now, my friends!

I hope you find this information useful and not too confusing. Even though you're at the stage of building on it, have patience at this point in your learning and you'll be able to reap the fruit of your work later on, whichever aspect of our lessons you are concentrating on.

Please feel free to comment and suggest your ideas by replying to this email - I look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to chat either with me or with other members worldwide, go to My English Club .

All the best from me until next time,

Lucia da Vinci

Founder of My English Club
