Firstly, I want you to do a favour for us.
Can you open a section in your web site that we can write about ourselves and argue some topics so we can improve our English.I think it will be beneficial for students

Thanks a lot man.. I really owe you for providing this wonderful blog.
I have cross some interesting thing when I am practicing Listening test in Cambridge practice test 1.
It is a gap filling in section-3(26-29)
The instruction says we can answer in maximum of three words. So here are my answers.
1. small talk
2.write about work
3. chosen by us.
4. open book exam
Here are the answers found in key
1. talk//give a talk
2 write up work
3 can choose
4 open book
My doubt is.. my answers very similar but will the examiner accept my answers. Since answers can be 3 words, so my answers are three.
