  • General writing Ipshita 8pm6

    Posted by Ipshita on July 19, 2021 at 9:12 PM

    Marina has just started a new course at college and her tutor has asked her to write him a letter telling him something about herself. She has made ten mistakes in verb tenses in her letter. Find and correct them.

    Dear Tutor,

    I am coming to Brighton College from Singapore, where I was a student for ten years. I did already take examinations in Singapore in English, Biology, Computer and Maths. My highest score is for Computer: I got grade A.

    When I was a student in Singapore I also have a part-time job in a shop. My uncle owns a supermarket and so I helped him in the evenings. I used to worked there four nights a week and I think this was very good experience for me.

    At the weekends, I usually played volleyball with friends or, if the weather’s bad, we have been to the theatre, which is very popular in Singapore. Because of my part-time job, I also did spend a lot of time studying at the weekend.

    I didn’t go to many other places. My father took me to Thailand once. Three weeks after we had returned he also went to Malaysia and took the whole family.

    This is a brief description of my background.

    Best wishes,
    Marina
