    I do not know what the test requires, then. All of my sentences are grammatical.

    I know that all your sentences are grammatically corect, becouse I already tried everything to gain a score, so I am just interested which options are there meant to be the qlue. Becouse it is internet Cambridge advanced level test online with corection, but they just tell you whether it is right or wrong without any kind of help or solution. So I just wonder which options are left there. Anyway, thanks a lot becouse I did not know about slender means, and I found out that I did not gain score with third sentence becouse of misspelling words.

    Keep in touch, by.

    It Seems to be a good website with a lot of information.
    I believe you need to suck it up and learn to read, since you'll find that as you get past basic level that the available resources for continuing to learn will narrow significantly if you don't know the characters.

    Language immersion
