Dear student,

As you well know by now, English (or any foreign language) has to be practised regularly in order to excel at it.

So this is why I recommend Limba engleză în teste şi exerciţii by Dr. Timár Eszter, which covers all aspects of the English language (grammar, pronunciation, translations, vocabulary). It also has multiple choice tests as well as some exercises which require your imagination.

So, till next time, here is an exercise for you, English enthusiasts:

Match the idiomatic expressions with their meaning:

  1. She was sitting on the fence.                       a. joking
  2. She was playing it by ear.                            b. speaking and acting firmly
