STUDY TIP 🍒

When you’ve finished and you’ve checked your answers make a note of the ones you didn’t know or that you misspelt, and try to make a new sentence with them in the present perfect.

Whenever you can, make the sentences personal to you and your life, as it is much easier to remember things when they are relevant to us.

Put these sentences on post-it notes around the house, leaving a gap where the verb should be.

Every time you see these notes READ THEM OUT LOUD adding the missing verb. Then after a week do this whole exercise again and see how you have improved!
