Elementary to Pre-Intermediate

Many English words have more than one meaning. If you only know one meaning, it is easy to get confused!

For example: Sweet.

1 - "Sarah is such a sweet little girl, she’s always looking after her brother." - kind and friendly.
2 - "This tea is too sweet for me to drink! How much sugar is in it?" - a taste similar to sugar.

The words below all have more than one meaning – write two sentences that show the different meanings. Use a dictionary to help you.
