ESL 2; second term – TEST 10
First of all, write your last name (e.g, González) and your first name (Gerardo). Then have a look at the blackboard and copy the date. Circle your Class Group in the printed paper (papel impreso).
Please, write clear. If you are doing a fill in exercise such as “complete the following words” or “include a word in the sentences below” try to separate letters and make neat handwriting.
I suggest you do not use pencil in the printed paper or exam paper. (In case you love writing in pencil, use it as a draft. Later on pass the notes in ball pen).

Sometimes students make silly mistakes only because of a missing letter.
guets instead of guests or bussines instead of business
Be careful with basics. A good student does not make mistakes when writing or saying: fifteenth, ninth, twentieth (ordinal numbers) or me, you, him (personal pronouns of object). Despite of revision work some students keep on making the same old mistakes.
Subject: I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they
Object: me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them
She loves him (ella le ama)
Possessive adjectives: (adjective+noun)
My, your, his, her, its, our, your, their
Could you give me my wallet, please?
When conjugating a verb read calmly the form you are asked. Maybe you have to conjugate the negative form and you unconsciously do the affirmative form. For example:
Conjugate the present progressive tense in the negative form of the verb TO TYPE.mecanografiar
You start like this: I am typing, you are typing…
You should have written this: I am not typing, you are not typing
People nowadays write questions in Spanish with the final question mark by the influence of the English language. That is a bad thing. When someone uses Spanish language must follow Spanish rules and when using English language must follow English rules.
I have seen this: **Vas a venir con nosotros al teatro mañana?
¿Vas a venir con nosotros al teatro mañana? (ESPAÑOL)
However, I have also read this in a test: **¿Can you tell me…?
Can you tell me…? (ENGLISH)
Do not write these basics in the wrong way:
**Thanks you!, thank!
Thanks!, thank you!, many thanks! cheers! are RIGHT expressions
Be good & good luck!
