Improve your English! Try this vocab. quiz

Aug 07, 2012

Hi guys,

Just back from my holidays- sorry I haven't blogged for a while.

In today's English class we're going to look at some vocabulary mistakes that students make in my class all the time, so see if you can spot the errors, and then check your answers of course.

Here goes:

Common vocabulary problems- see if you can correct them.

1. I really love comedy films. They’re my favourite.
2. I quite like where I live. It’s a nice neighborhood.
3. I’m always stressful at my job- it’s too tough for me.
4. We often get angry and have discussions- I can’t take it anymore.
5. James doesn’t like waiting. He’s really unpatient.
6. My uncle ate so much food that he couldn’t eat any desert.
7. I always wanted to be a cooker when I was young.
8. New York is too touristic for me.
9. My father and I have a really strong relation.
10. Amy broke her leg yesterday so she’s out of work.
11. Tigers are a specie which is endangered.
12. You need to wash up your clothes before tomorrow.

And here are the answers:

1. I really love comedies. They’re my favourite.
2. I quite like where I live. It’s a nice neighbourhood.Without a u is American.
3. I’m always stressed at my job- it’s too tough for me.
4. We often get angry and have arguments- I can’t take it anymore. Arguments are aggressive-not discussions.
5. James doesn’t like waiting. He’s really impatient.
6. My uncle ate so much food that he couldn’t eat any dessert. Sahara desert.
7. I always wanted to be a cook when I was young.A cooker is an oven
8. New York is too touristy for me. Touristic doesn't exist.
9. My father and I have a really strong relationship.
10. Amy broke her leg yesterday so she’s off work. Out of work is unemployed.
11. Tigers are a species which is endangered. Species is singular and plural.
12. You need to wash  your clothes before tomorrow. Wash up is for plates e.t.c.

How did you do? I'd say 8 out of 12 is pretty good for an upper-intermediate student.

Anyway, see you again soon.

As always, good luck with your English!
