From Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English 1:
My version, 'It did not take long before Janice got over her cold.' Does this sound natural?Complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first sentence, using the word given.
Janice soon recovered from her cold.
It did .... her cold.
Or do you prefer, 'It did not take long for Janice to get over her cold' or 'It did not take Janice long to get over her cold' as the answer key suggests?
