Business English 2

1/ The skeleton of a verb has 3 elements: INFINITIVE + PAST + PAST PARTICIPLE
decir: to say said said

ser: to be was / were been

2/ Write exclamation marks!
good morning!

In Spanish we use exclamation and question marks at the beginning of sentences and also at the end:

¡Buenas tardes! ¡Hola! ¡Adiós!

In English we use exclamation and question marks only at the end:

Afternoon! Bye bye!

Do not write or say: ¿What is your surname? (WRONG)

Tips for examinations

1/ write on the top of the examination paper your SURNAME (in CAPITAL LETTERS) and name as in the example: SMITH, John

5/ separate letters (h e l l o ) and words (How old are you? )
