LET`S THINK...



The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

GENERAL TEST PREPARATION

General test preparation
To do well on tests you must first learn the material,
and then review it before the test.
These are techniques to better understand your material:

Learning

■Take good notes in your class lectures and textbooks
■Review your notes soon after class/lecture
■Review notes briefly before the next class
■Schedule some time at the end of the week for a longer review
Reviewing

■Take good notes
about as your teacher tells you what will be on the test
■Organize your notes, texts, and assignments
according to what will be on the test
■Estimate the hours you'll need to review materials
■Draw up a schedule
that blocks units of time and material
■Test yourself on the material
■Finish your studying the day before the exam

TELLING THE TIME

Telling the Time

Asking the time

Here are some phrases you can use when you want to know the time:
  • What's the time?
  • What time is it?
  • Have you got the right time?
  • What time do you make it?

Telling the time

To tell someone what the time is, we can say "The time is..." or, more usually, "It's...". Here is a typical dialogue:
Question:What's the time, please?
Answer:It's three o'clock.


The chart below shows you two different ways to tell someone what the time is.

SIMPLE PAST OF REGULAR VERBS

Regular Verbs

English regular verbs change their form very little (unlike irregular verbs). The past tense and past participle of regular verbs end in -ed, for example:
work, worked, worked
But you should note the following points:
1. Some verbs can be both regular and irregular, for example:
learn, learned, learned
learn, learnt, learnt
2. Some verbs change their meaning depending on whether they are regular or irregular, for example "to hang":
regularhang, hanged, hangedto kill or die, by dropping with a rope around the neck
irregularhang, hung, hungto fix something (for example, a picture) at the top so that the lower part is free


3. The present tense of some regular verbs is the same as the past tense of some irregular verbs:
regularfound, founded, founded
irregularfind, found, found
