1 is B and 2 is A


sorry 1 and 2 answers are b

B & B..

Hi Simon,
I want to ask you a question of Speaking. In the speaking about a building, can i describe the Opera House?

My answers are B and B

B&B is my answer


1- b
2- b

1. B
2. B

1. B / 2. B

My answers: 1.B 2.B

At first glance, I personally think that the second answer is A. Because we have to refer "a waste of funds" phrase by mentioning about its price.



1. B
The key word is "consecutive" (3 days together, one after the other)

2. B

poor use of resources = waste of funds

'only a minority would use it' gives the same idea as 'elitist' (only for a special group of people)

hey simon,,I want to ask one thing ..there are some tests which are academic only and some are general and academic both...Is there any difference between listening tests..are listening tests of academic are tough than those of combined general and academic.

Hello Simon!
I have just finished listening to a cd. The speaker said, "It's also rather far from the university."
The question on the test manual is :
#12 ......... from the university
My answer is "FAR", but the answer key shows "TOO FAR" as the correct answer!
Where did they get the word "TOO"? It's not even synonymous to 'rather'.
Another is punctuation. The speaker in the cd said, " Journals, magazines, and newspapers."
The question is "Journals,............."
My answer is " magazines and newspapers", but the answer key shows "magazines, and newspapers"
So the comma has to be really there?

Dear Simon, please give me some advice about how to develop my listening from 6.00 to a higher band.???


I'm afraid I no longer have time to answer everyone's questions individually. However, I do still read them all, and I try to answer some questions in a lesson once a week (usually Saturdays).

anyway, thank you a lot. your advice is great! I'll be waiting!
