Body parts

Average: 3 (10 votes)

We learn words such as ‘arm’ and ‘leg’ in our first English classes.

But can you remember the smaller, less obvious parts of the body.

In each sentence is a scrambled body part.

Is university worth it?

Average: 3 (5 votes)

I am about to start my masters degree (Monday, wish me luck!) so this type of article, which debates whether university is worth its cost, is extremely interesting to me. I sincerely hope that a year of studying hard will have a good outcome! In this article, I have removed some of the key vocabulary, but as it is of intermediate standard, I have not given you any of the definitions. All you need to do is put the correct word in each gap.
