  • People used to laugh at me behind my back before I was in shape or successful. Once I lost a lot of weight, I was so excited that I opened my own gym, and began helping others. I began to get quite a large following of students, and finally, I didn't catch someone laughing at me behind my back any longer. CLICK HERE NOW ♣♣♣ http://ishbv.com/1minweight/pdf

  5. 5. Introduction What are these tests? 'ihey are diagnostic tests. designed to be used with Practical English Usage (Third Edition). They will help you to check what you know, and what you don't know, about English grammar and usage. By using these tests you can discover what you need to learn, and where to lind the necessary explanations. 'lhe tests are at three levels: ° Upper Intermediate (29 tests) ° Advanced (29 tests) ° Expert (30 tests) Each test has questions on one general area of grammar or usage (for example 'past and perfect tenses', 'adjectives', 'artic1es', 'confusable words'). Using the tests You can use these tests to check your knowledge of a particular area of grammar or usage. For instance, to lind out how much you know about the use of passives: ° Choose the level (for example Upper Intermediate) that you think is right for you. Go to the test on passives at that level (Test 9). Answer the questions. Check your answers in the key at the back of the book. lf you get some answers wrong, the answer key will show you where in Practical English Usage (Third Edition) you can find the explanations you need for each point. 0 Go to PracticalEnglish Usage (Third Edition) and read the explanations. 0 Try the test again, preferably a few days later, and see if you can now get more or less everything right. Levels You don't need to choose the same level for all the tests. You may, for example, know enough about present tenses to do the Advanced test, but ñnd that the Upper Intermediate test is better suited to your knowledge of prepositions. lf you find a test too easy or difñcult. try a higher or lower level for that language point. lf most of the Upper Intermediate tests are too hard for you, it may be best to wait until later before using the book. Il' you can do all the Expert-level tests without difñculty, congratuiations: you have a remarkable knowledge of English, and don't need the boold page vi
  6. 6. Correctness: not too little, not too much Not everybody needs the same level of correcmess in a foreign language. e Some people just need a practical worldng knowledge of English in order to be able to communicate reasonably successfully. However, if they make too many mistakes with the most common Structures, they can be difficult to understand 'Ihe Upper Intermediate tests will help with problems at that level. w Other language learners and users need quite a high level of correcmess for their studies or work, especially if they need to write English. 'lhey will lind the Advanced tests useful G Absolute correctness in a foreign language is generally unnecessary, and out of reach of most adult learners. But some very advanced students may want their English to be as free from error as possible. ']]1e Expert-level tests are designed for such learners. These tests will also be useful for non-native- speaking teachers of English. Remember: grammar is not the only part of a language that has to be leamt and practised; it is not even the most important part. Don't get obsessed with correctness; otherwise you will end up just learning grammar instead of learning English. Use this book sensibly, in moderation, to help you meet your own personal needs. Two important notes for teachers 1. 'Ihese are diagnostic tests, not grading tests or attainment tests. Their function is not to assign students to levels, to enable you to give students marks for their work, or to draw an imaginary line between 'success' and 'failurei 'Ihey are not appropriate tools for such purposes, and we should be sorry ii' our book was used in these ways. The tests are best used for syllabus planning: to check leamers' strengths and weaknesses in particular llnguistic areas, so as to show what still needs to be taught. 'Ihey will help you to answer questions like 'What problems do my students still have with basic tense use? ', 'Are they having trouble with relative clausest' or 'Do they know enough about spoken grammar? 2. Testing can be an easy option for teachers; and because of this, teachers can be tempted to spend too much time on tests. Bear in mind that teaching üme is limited, and testing is not teaching. Asking people what they know doesn't teach them anything very much; it simply tells you what they may need to learn. page vii
