Hi there. There is a quiz from book "Grammar and vocabulary for First Certificate", preparing for the ESOL First Certificate in English (FCE) (Cambridge University) . It's extracted from one module, devoted to Link words : purpose and reason. It implies upper-intermediate level. I hope it would be useful.

1.
I phoned I need to speak to you.
2. the rain has stopped, we can go back in the garden.
3. the bus was late, I missed the meeting.
4.We took a taxi be late.
5.The traffic jam is to major roadworks.
6.Emma came first all her hard work.

year i got 9 points Emotion: smile
I scored 9. Simple assignment. Desperate. I always have mistakes. But! I think that in the 10th sentence you can use both variants:
We'll join the euro because our economy will improve.
We'll join the euro, because of that our economy will improve.

How do you think?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
.
No, the second does not work; it is lacking a conjunction or punctuation:

We'll join the euro; because of that our economy will improve.
We'll join the euro, and because of that our economy will improve.
it is a good test
I scored 8 out of 10

not bad
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Hey, I got all right
I scored 5 out of 10
It isn't good!
Hi everyone,
after i finished the test, I got some question to ask:
1. How to know when we should use because and because of?
2. How to know when we should use owing to, owe to and due to?

Thanks in advance.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
.
1. How to know when we should use because and because of?-- 'Because' + clause. 'Because of' + noun.
2. How to know when we should use owing to, owe to and due to?-- 'Owing to' = 'Due to'. 'Owe to' does not exist except as a verb: I owe $10 to my brother.
