    It looks perfect to me. I agree with your answers 100%. Of course, that could be a bad sign.

    :wink:

    Hi, Shane, do you know anything about the CET exam- there have been a couple of questions about it and I haven't a clue, and the sites that offer examples are in Chinese, which doesn'thelp me much. I'dlike to see an example so I can get an idea of their approach and requirements. Cheers.

    Hi Tdol, I know of the CET-4 (College English Test), but I'm afraid I've never taught it. However, my fiancee has just taken (and passed) the TEM-4 (Test for English Majors), which is the same kind of thing, only considerably harder.

    I'll get her to bring a book over later today, and I'll post some examples for you.

    How's that? :)
