    Jane and Andy________(wait) at the airport in Cape town to catch
    their plane back to London. They _______(be) on honeymoon in South
    Africa for four weeks and they_______(feel) very relaxed.
    They_____(not wait) long when their flight_____(announce) over the
    tannoy :"Flight to London _____(leave) in one hour." As
    they______(make) their way to Gate 4, Jane and Andy_______(hear)
    another announcement:"Flight to New York________(delay) due to a
    technical fault. Will passengers please go to Gate5 and wait there for
    further information"
    "Oh dear!" said Jane"I ______(hope)people _______(not get)
    confused. What ________(happen) if someone ____(get) on the wrong

    The idea is not to do your homework, but to help you where you have doubts or questions. I will do this part for you this once, but I will not do the second part. I am happy to help you learn how to do the work for yourself, but not to do it for you. Our job is to help people learn how to learn.

    As a teacher, I do understand that exercises need doing quickly, which is why I have helped this time. Your job is to look through it and think why I have made the choices that I have. Next time ask me a question that you have thought about first and need help with.

    "Pardon? What did you say?"
