Hi,

Here's my answer.

You have some spellling mistakes, which I have just ignored.

Clive Hi,
Here's my answer.

Yes Clive, you are right. That's becuase I typed without looking at the monitor.

Thank you for your answer.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Here it is another text. Again I'm requested to find the mistakes.

Here's what I think I should omit:

line wrong word
0 of
43 for
44 of
46 if
47 to
50 at
52 (there's something wrong about it, I'm not sure)
54 as (badly)
Hi,

I took a quick look at this, but it was awkward to look at.

Here are my thoughts.

0 - of

42 - the

43 - for

44 - amount

45 - just

46 - if

48 - themselves

50 - at

51 - much

52 - were

54 - as

55 - either

As an exercise to improve your English, I'm not enthusiastic about this kind of thing.

You're right Clive. I hadn't noticed a few of them.
Thank you.

What do you mean?
I'm having an exam later this month and this is a type of exiercise that will probably be on that exam.

Hi,

Very broadly speaking, I prefer to show students correct English rather than incorrect English.
