    Arrow Please help me with this one...

    Hi everyone,

    I have some problems with getting below exercises correct. I would highly appreciate if someone could help me with them. I need them very badly...
    and as soon as possible.....

    Thank you very much,

    1. Vocabulary
    Why shouldn't the following pairs of words be taught as exact synonyms?

    a) large/great b) tall/high c) lazy/idle d) begin/start

    2. Language function
    The following language forms are used to request others to perform an action:

    Do me a favour and pass that paper, will you?
    Could you possibly pass me that paper?
    You couldn't pass me that paper, could you?

    a) Give examples of three further forms that might be used to make similar requests.
    b) What factors are relevant in deciding which of these forms to use in a given situation?

    3. Pronunciation
    From the following list, pair the words that have the same vowel sound:

    seat heard love bread bin could dawn still put laugh meat cup heart four friend soup wash turn pool hot



    Thank you very much for your help,
