Which are your answers, the red ones or the blue ones?
Mister MicawberWhich are your answers, the red ones or the blue ones?
The mistake is blue. I correct it by the red ones. Emotion: stick out tongue
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
You seem to have misunderstood the assignment in most cases. The blue words are not to be changed, but you must add a word or two to correct the grammar structure.

Also, some originals are wrong, and I correct them here:

4. Very reluctantly, he consented her to lend the money to Janet.

6. For years the group has been campaigning an inquiry to hold into the accident.

8. Sam promised me to show me how to fish for salmon, but he never had the time.

#9: The original is correct.

Your answers to #s 13, 14, 15 are correct except that #15 has another problem:

15. Most people are afraid of hearing the truth about them.
Mister MicawberThe blue words are not to be changed, but you must add a word or two to correct the grammar structure.
What? I say that the blue words are the mistakes (I think they are incorrect). And I correct it with the red ones. Emotion: indifferent

Nothing changes. Do you think they are correct? No mistakes? Emotion: indifferent

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
You should not change the blue words. Add something to make the sentence correct, like this:

1. She longed for the holidays to come so that she could be with her family again.

2. I overheard him say that he is thinking of moving to Manchester.

Correct #4, 6, 8, 15 as I presented them. The originals had mistakes that the writer did not mean to make!
Mister MicawberYou should not change the blue words. Add something to make the sentence correct.
Ohh...Emotion: stick out tongue
To Anonymous: when a student is working on an exercise with me, please do not interrupt with all the answers. That does not help the student.
