Class one:

We started today’s class by reviewing essay structure and looking at an example:

CAE formal essay writing

We then focused on part 1: collocations and confusing words. We began by guessing the common word that completed 3 sentences, focusing on context and word form.

Then we completed exercises 2 and 3 on page 69 of the trainer book, and discussed meanings and other possible answers. To finish we looked at frequently confused words and the differences in meaning.
