CAMBRIDGE READING AND USE OF ENGLISH PART 4 (2)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back everyone. Today is day two of our Cambridge Reading and Use of English, Part 4 week! Remember... you don't have to be studying for a Cambridge exam to learn something or participate this week! 

As a reminder, here's how Part 4 works:

1) You have two sentences. One sentence is complete, the other is missing words. 
2) You must complete the second sentence so that its meaning is the same as the first sentence. You can use 2-5 words to complete the sentence.
3) One of the 2-5 words must be the word you are given. 

Here is today's challenge:

Sentence 1: So that she would be ready for the exam, Sarah studied 5 hours each day. 

Word: ORDER

Sentence 2: _____ be prepared for the exam, Sarah studied 5 hours each day. 

Give us your answer on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter) and we will post the correct answer later; we will also include the correct answer in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin email.

CAMBRIDGE READING AND USE OF ENGLISH PART 4 (1)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello everyone! Happy Monday to you. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

This week's theme is Cambridge Reading and Use of English, Part 4. You don't have to be studying for a Cambridge exam to learn something or to participate! Part 4 of Reading and Use of English is a fun grammar and vocabulary challenge. Here's how it works:

1) You have two sentences. One sentence is complete. The other is missing words. 
2) You must complete the second sentence so that its meaning is the same as the first sentence.

For the First Certificate Exam, you can use 2-5 words. For the Certificate of Advanced English they allow 3-6 words. For this week's Daily Vitamin lessons, we will ask for 2-5 words.

3) One of the 2-5 words must be the word you are given.

Let's see if you can complete this sentence. 

Sentence 1: You must follow my instructions exactly. 

Word: CARRY 

Sentence 2: You must _____ my instructions exactly. 

This one is a little difficult, so we will give you a hint: the missing two words create a phrasal verb. with the verb Carry.

Give us your answers on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter) and we will post the correct answer later; we will also include the correct answer in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin email.

IDIOMS FOR BEING THANKFUL (THANK YOU VERY MUCH)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Today is the fourth day of our Idioms for Being Thankful theme! Today we are looking at one that is a little silly: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'm sure you've heard this expression before, but we are looking at a different use today. Normally, THANK YOU VERY MUCH means exactly what it seems: that you express gratitude to someone. However, there is also a sarcastic use for this expression. 

Definition: A statement at the end of a sentence that is used for emphasis, usually when there is no reason for the speaker to say thank you. 

Example 1: I'll just clean the house myself then, thank you very much

Example 2: A lot of my friends had fun in college, but not me. I worked two jobs and paid for my own tuition, thank you very much

That's all for today. Thank you for reading!
