BULATS READING, PART 1, SECTION 4 (3)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello everyone!

As you probably know, this week we are focusing on BULATS Reading, Part 1, Section 4. This is a gap exercise where you give one word to complete a sentence. In the real BULATS test, there is a paragraph with many sentences that have missing words, but for the Daily Vitamin we are only focusing on one sentence each day. 

Here is today’s sentence. 

Sentence: In order to _____ the needs of today's technological society, schools are now teaching computer-based subjects like coding and programming.

Do you know the missing word? Let us know on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter).

We will include the answer in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin email, and we will give the answer on our social media sites.

We look forward to seeing your answers!

Here is today's challenge. Can you complete the sentence with one missing word?

Sentence: When it _____ to math homework, I always ask my Aunt Jane for help. She's a maths teacher.

PHRASAL VERBS FOR BUSINESS (IRON OUT)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello, everyone. Welcome back to the Daily Vitamin. This week, we are looking at Phrasal Verbs for Business, and today is our final day. Our last phrasal verb for the week is TO IRON (something) OUT

Definition: To fix/remove small problems. 

Example 1: We need to iron out the details for this proposal. 

Example 2: They want to offer me a new position in the company, but they said they have to iron out the position's responsibilities before it's officially offered to me. 

Example 3: Did you iron out those problems with the reservations?

We hope you enjoyed this week of phrasal verbs. As you can see, they are useful in the office setting, but they are also great for everyday speech. 

Next week, we are focusing on BULATS Reading practice. We hope you join us for some great lessons. 

Have a great weekend!
