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.
