    Fixes on handouts

    Hi there,

    I'm currently teaching a group of Spanish boys (ages 14-21) and they had some trouble with so/such and too/enough.

    So I printed the sets of exercises about so/such; too/enough and enough/too (these last three - as there are three sets of multiple choice exercises, all three of them different - could they be grouped under the same heading? It's strange to find the same issue addressed under two different ones).

    OK, so I found a couple of issues to be fixed:

    - Handout Enough&Too 2: Q7: the third possible answer reads "money eough" instead of the obvious "enough" (also in the answer sheet).

    - Handout So&Such: Q20 + Q21: Wouldn't it be better if they were more separate from each other (even in different handouts), so that students would not find it so easy?

    - Handout So&Such: In questions such as #1, I believe it would be more useful if the determiner "a" is removed from the main sentence, and included with "such" in the answer: IMO, when they see "a" in the sentence, they immediately opt for "such".

    I believe that's all as of now. If I find any other issue that may need to be addressed, I'll let you guys know.

    Keep up the nice work!
