Sorry. I really don't have time to do one-on-one. Emotion: sad

Just continue to post what you can here.
Thinking SpainIf I can ever help you in Spanish, please do ask me.
I will. But you have to realize that I live in California, where Spanish is spoken quite widely. My next-door neighbor is a native speaker of Spanish, for example, and she and I occasionally speak Spanish together. Well, she speaks Spanish, and I speak something like Spanish. Emotion: big smile

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Emotion: embarrassed Hi CalifJim,

So sorry, the night I looked at your post I was too sleepy, so believe it or not, I didn't see this one.

Fill in the blanks with the code numbers of the appropriate synonyms from the glossary.

Or

Fill in the blanks with the numbers corresponding to the appropriate synonyms from the glossary.

You can also use in the glossary if you want.

Fill in the blanks with the numbers corresponding to the appropriate synonyms in the glossary.

There are probably several other variations that are acceptable.

(But don't use the possessive glossary's, please.) I won't. Thank you for your correction.

Your directions are really good, the problem is me; I didn't explain myself in the correct way.

Here I go again. They don't have to fill in the blanks with 'the numbers' corresponding to the appropriate synonyms in the glossary. They have to fill in the blanks with synonyms.

Let me explain myself again, see if this time I do it the right way.Emotion: thinking

They read a story and then they do a couple of exercises: one is to answer some questions about the story and the other one is the 'fill in the blanks' exercise.

To explain them some of the words, in the story, I use synonyms or phrases between parentheses and also some drawings.

Example: This is just a paragraph of one of the readings.

Now (at this moment) Robert is taking his wallet out of his jacket pocket. How much money is there in Robert’s wallet? There isn’t a lot of (a big quantity of) money. In fact (in reality) there's only (simply, just) a little (a small quantity of) money.

Questions from the reading ... and then the glossary.

Glossary

1.- A synonym for now is at this moment.

2.- A synonym for a lot of is a big quantity of.

3.- A synonym for in fact is in reality.

4.- Synonyms for only are simply and just.

5.- A synonym for a little is a small quantity of.

This is the fill in the blanks exercise:

I give them the synonyms or phrases from the glossary and they have to fill in the blanks according to the synonyms and the given numbers in the glossary.

(Here goes the directions, the ones that I don't know how to write)

How about this one? Fill in the blanks by choosing the appropriate synonyms from/in the glossary according to the given numbers. Emotion: nodding Emotion: shake

1.- At this moment. 2.- A big quantity of. 3.- In reality. 4.- Simply and just. 5.- A small quantity.

(1) _____ Robert is taking his wallet out of his jacket pocket. How much money is there in Robert’s wallet? There isn’t (2) ___________ money, (3) __________ there's (4) _________ (5) ___________ money.

So this is the result after they have filled in the exercise:

(1) Now Robert is taking his wallet out of his jacket pocket. How much money is there in Robert’s wallet? There isn’t (2) a lot of money. (3) In fact there's (4) only (5) a little money.

Sorry if I've been too wordy.

Thank you very much for reading me and for your patience.
