Both native English speakers and English learners often have problems writing a CV: it is very hard to describe ourselves without using boring or common language.

 SPOT THE ERROR (October)
Each day we are giving you a sentence in English and you must decide if the sentence is correct or not; if is it not correct, tell us what the mistake in the sentence is.

BEGINNING BUSINESS EMAILS OR LETTERS (October)
We are looking at Beginning Business Emails in English.

SYNONYMS FOR STRANGE (October)
We are looking at Synonyms for the Word Strange.

FCE READING AND USE OF ENGLISH PART I PRACTICE (October)
We are looking at some example questions from the Cambridge First Certificate Exam. All of these are sample questions from Part I of the Reading and Use of English module. If you are not preparing for the Cambridge FCE, this is still great vocabulary practice!
