Welcome to the forum, pretty crazy. :hi:

We like to help when we can, but we don't help with homework assignments. Your teachers want to know what you can do, not what we can do.

Thanks. You're right. The problem is that I was in very hard situation so I stopped my studies and it was very difficult to carry on! [STRIKE]well![/STRIKE] Thanks. I should try answering and post them for correction. Many thanks!

Are you no longer studying formally? Where did you find the exercise that you have posted?

When you try the exercise yourself, please make it easier to read for us. Please put a line space between each numbered line. At the moment, it is very messy and hard to read. Please also look at your spacing. In post #3, several of your words were joined together incorrectly. Note that you cannot copy and paste on the forum because it makes the formatting go wrong. You need to type everything in yourself.

Also note the amendments I made to your post, marked above in red. You spelt "thanks" incorrectly twice. I'm sure you actually know how to spell it correctly so you just need to be more careful when you type.

That is even more difficult to read than the original! You need to post again, I'm afraid. It should like a little like post #1 but with a line's space between each speaker, like this:

Terry: I'm looking at the jobs pages in the paper. There's something here I like the sound of.
Modus International, a 1.__________ supplier of car parts, has a 2. __________ for
the 3. __________ of Sales Manager in their Brighton office.

Sandra: That sounds like your kind of job. When does it begin?

Terry: Let me see. Er, 4. __________ April 1st, it says here. That's in three weeks' time.

Sandra: You'd better get your 5. __________ in, if you're interested. What else does it say
about the job?

I suggest you post the whole conversation, laid out like that, and put your suggested answers in each space.

We are not trying to make things hard for you, and really want to help people who want to learn, but please read this part again:
I suggest you post the whole conversation, laid out like that, and put your suggested answers in each space

It's not fair to expect us to scroll up and down, up and down. If you think that "interview" is the answer for that last blank, then write "interview" in that spot in a different color so we know it's your answer.

I am well aware of what I did and what I didn't do. I explained what I had done in my post. You need to go back and read it all again.

Not a teacher. Pretty crazy, stop flooding! What I know that these teachers are good, but they are not going to correct all your "writing" mistakes you can make grammar mistakes, but when everything is messed up it's hard to understand you and now I think that you are illiterate. If you can't write in English correctly please download "Mozzila Firefox" this explorer corrects mistakes automatically. Nobody is going to do your homework for you just sit tight and work for yourself. =)

Firstly, prettycrazy, you really need to learn to be patient. We are all volunteers here, we have a lot of posts to deal with and yours is long and certainly wasn't simple to read at the start. Thank you for rewriting it so we could read it. Your posts of 22.20 and 22.26 were unnecessary and very poorly written. Posts like that will not encourage us to help you.

So - your answers. I am going to list the ones which are incorrect and then you can have another try:

1
2
6
7
8
12
13 (look at the next word for a clue)
14
16 - Correct word, wrong spelling
17
19 - Correct choice, wrong spelling again
21
22 - Really? Is it likely that you are being asked to send a team?
23 - Is leading a noun?

Some of your errors are understandable. Some are just not. Check every one of those 24 words in a dictionary again and then read each individual sentence to see if you can see how your choices are incorrect.

Don't worry about bothering us but it is important that you take our suggestions and follow them.
There is no need to try to address us as "Sir" (or "Madam") - our gender is irrelevant and, in this case, you chose the wrong one anyway.
