Key (2) to exercises in unit 3 (Avanzado 2)

January 15, 2013

This is the second part of this. And you’ve got all kinds of keys on a Page here (right-hand column, scroll down a bit) called Key Av2.

p. 48: 3, 2, DS, 1, 3, 4, DS, 1, 2, DS, 4
p. 49: (we checked this in one of the groups, I think) d – 1 Believing him to be the murderer, 2 (Amelle,) forced to marry a man she does not love, (Amelle) decides…, 3 (Simon,) realizing (that) the police… (Simon) tries…, 4 First published in 1903, it (the book) has been reprinted…, 5 Deeply ashamed of how he has behaved, Luke…, 6 Set during the WW1, it (the book) tells the story…, 7 Hearing the shot, Mark rushes…

Use participle clauses (a clause with no subject and verb in a personal form; a clause with a non-finite or non-personal verb ending in -ing, or in -ed) when you have to write a review, for instance, or any other kind of DESCRIPTIVE TEXT. You can learn two examples, for instance no. 6 (Set in the XIX century, the story depicts life in…), as an example of a past participle clause, and no. 3 (Realizing he had a chance of succeeding, the athlete jumps again and…)

f – 1 ok, 2 not “very”, 3 ok, 4 not “rather” (quite)

p. 50: you should always do the second section of Colloquial English at home. It’s good practice for one of the parts in your Listening test. (In class, we usually just do the first part). 1 4, 2 3, 3 1-3, 4 2, 5 5.

Common expressions: 1 focus ON, 2 massive amounts, 3 in hindsight, 4 along with, 5 having a roof, 6 dropped out of
Common expressions: 1 It freaks me out, 2 good going (que sale bien), 3 money-wise, 4 bargains, 5 sticking to ’em (them).

p. 51: 1 Not only did we see the sights, 2 I think he might have got/gotten lost, 3 ok, 4 The waiter probably didn’t notice (PROBABLY is placed just before the main verb, but this is the exception, and it happens because the verbal phrase is in the negative), 5 it’s time you went to bed, 6 ok, 7 ok, 8somebody must be baking some bread (Deduction, continuous), 9 ok, 10 I’d rather you CAME tomorrow.
b – 1 to arrive, 2 were we, 3 to have heard, 4 had they got / did they get, 5 hadn’t bought, 6 be trying, 7 sarted, 8 had I seen, 9 work, 10 you didn’t park.
Vocabulary. a – 1 (not “lip”) tongue, 2 not “above”, beyond, 3 not “shoulders”, back 4 not “mortgage”, fortune, 5 not “wastes”, spends, 6 not “match”, meet.
b – 1 slammed, 2 whispered, 3 whistled, 4 sighed, 5 rattled, 6 screeched
c – 1 buzz, 2 drip, 3 small talk (are you good at small talk? it’s very useful to break the ice!), 4 thought-provoking (a great adj. for book reviews!), 5 bland, 6 fare, 7 shares, 8 budget, 8 fee, 10 intriguing.
d – 1 wealthy, 2 implausible, 3 tight-fisted, 4 penniless, 5 vast, 6 adhereto, 7 profoundly, 8 vast

I think that’s all, but if you need anything else, just let me know! Have a nice day!
