Grammar Exercise 5
English Speaking Tip
Spend time before the test speaking and listening or reading in English rather than in your own language so you are ‘thinking in English’ when you go into the examination room. Don’t worry if you make a grammatical mistake – you are being assessed on various things, not just your grammar.
Here is part of a sample answer to the task. Fill in the gaps with the correct form of the verbs in brackets to make true sentences.
I think the place I would most like to visit (visit) is England. I have been learning (learn) English for about seven years now and I still haven’t been (be) to an English-speaking country. I think if I went (go) somewhere like England, I’d be able to learn about the culture of another country. I did go (go) to Europe once with my family, but that was to Italy. I really enjoyed seeing (see) all the tourist attractions but it’s difficult when you don’t speak the local language. My father used to live (live) in England when he was a student and he says that if he hadn’t done (do) that, then wouldn’t have learned to speak English with a good accent. One of my ambitions is to study (study) there like he did, which I am planning to do if I pass (pass) all my exams.https://asielts.com/
