  1. Отличные упражнения! Большое спасибо.

  2. Очень понравилось!

  3. Есть одна ошибка! 15 упражнение не «Слова написаны на доске» а «Слова пишутся на доске» потому что первое прошедшее время!!!

    • Нет ошибки. Слова написаны на доске — факт. The words are written on the blackboard.

      Слова пишутся на доске — это the words are being written (Present Continuous Passive)

      • А если слова в принципе пишутся на доске. Для этого ее и повесили.

        Или хлеб режут (нарезают) с помощью ножа.

        Или стул делают из дерева.

        katrin, по вашей логике это все Present Continuous Passive???

        • Ну по моей логике, как раз нет. Есть факт, а есть настоящее длительное время, в частности здесь в пассиве.

          Ваш вариант про слова, которые в принципе пишутся на доске — ок, но тем не менее,

          the words are written on the blackboard

          неужели из вариантов

          1 Слова написаны на доске

          2 Слова в принципе пишутся на доске. Для этого ее и повесили.

          вы считаете правильным второй?

  4. 14 упражнение 5 предложение. 3 форма глагола pay — paid. А так все отлично)

  5. отличные упражнения! Спасибо большое!

  6. Не знаю... Вот эти вот:

    Упражнение 9. Your own answers.

    Упражнение 10. Your own answers... и таких еще несколько штук! Как можно проверить самого себя? Ведь упражнения для того и даны что бы затем проверить их правильность, а тут как? В общем упражнения не понравились.
