Ejercicios FIRST y TOEIC


Para tener un buen nivel de inglés es necesario saber que clases de palabras utilizamos en cada momento. Para ello en los exámenes de TOEIC y Cambridge hay varias actividades en las que se evalúa a los alumnos si saben diferenciar entre los distintos tipos de palabras. Por eso hemos pensado que una buena manera de practicar es haciendo ejercicios similares a los que os mostramos a continuación.

Si estás seguro que tipo de palabra tienes que utilizar, por ejemplo un adjetivo, pero no sabes cual es la palabra exacta en  inglés, intenta pensar en los prefijos y sufijos típicos. Quizás simplemente necesitas añadir un sufijo como –ive o un prefijo como dis-. Prueba con algunos y elige el que creas que es el mejor.

A continuación os dejamos varias actividades  para que podáis practicar la parte 3 del Use of English del examen del FIRST.
