  1. Благодарю вас за упражнения. Очень полезно)

  2. Анастасия | 04.06.2015 в 14:31 | Ответить

    Исправьте, пожалуйста, ошибку.

    в ответе к упражнению №3, 15) were sleeping: там не were , а was

    • Анастасия, Нет у меня все верно: you were sleeping — это правильно. You — аналог русского ВЫ.

  3. B ответе к упражнению №3,7) have you read (present perfect), а в задании указаны такие времена как: present simple, past simple, present continuous, past continuous. Pазве там не past simple?

    • Нет, там лучше использовать Present Perfect. Дописала время в условии к упражнению. Спасибо!

  4. В 5 упражнении в предложении номер 5 вы используете Past Continuous (were playing), а в задании это время не указано

  5. В ответах на 10 задание, неполный ответ к 9 предложению (9. I started learning / have been learning Spanish a few months ago I did not obtain / have not obtained a qualification in it yet. = 9 started learning) А в остальном спасибо)

  6. Спасибо, то чего я так долго искала!!!

  7. А ответы можно пожалуйста к 1 и 3 заданию

  8. А можно ответы на 1 и 3 задания?

  9. Можно пожалуйста ответы !!!!!

  10. Здравствуйте, поясните пожалуйста, почему в 7-ом упражнении, в шестом предложении стоит future simple (= will have) ? Мне казалось, что туда больше подходит Present Continuous, т.к. это действие было решено совершить до момента речи.

    • Здравствуйте, Никита. Думаю, что вы абсолютно правы, в этом предложении можно использовать Present Continuous и это будет даже логичнее

  11. в 7 упражнении в 6 предложении должно быть Future Continuous

  12. Спасибо за упражнения. Очень полезны задания на все времена-это заставит ученика задуматься))

  13. Анастасия | 13.03.2016 в 16:09 | Ответить

    Я могу, конечно, ошибаться, но предложение You __________ (buy) this book yesterday? не вопрос. Если бы это был вопрос, то оно звучало бы, как Did you buy this book yesterday?

    • Ну да, вопрос. Хотели чтобы я прочерк еще и в начале поставила??? Так не во всех тестах он будет стоять. Вопросительный знак стоит — значит делаем вопрос)))) На самом деле, в тестах именно так в основном и делается постановка задания подобного типа.

  14. Екатерина | 19.03.2016 в 12:07 | Ответить

    Спасибо за упражнения! Не могли бы Вы дать ссылку, где правила этих времен кратко все вместе изложены.

    • Пожалуйста, правила времен и кратко — вещи несовместимые)))))) А вообще поищите сами, так найдете тот стиль изложения, который будет Вам понятен

  15. будьте добры, объясните согласование времен в упражнении 3 предложение 1.

    ни разу не встречала, чтобы оба глагола (в главном и придат.предложении) шли в одном времени. есть какое-то правило, кроме основного?

    изучаю английский не так давно, тапками не кидайтесь =)

    • Добрый день, Анна. Здесь совершенно не нужно применять правило согласования времен.

      I ________ (listen) to the radio while Mary __________ (cook) dinner. Я слушала радио, пока Мери готовила обед. Два одновременных действия — поэтому и время одно и то же — Past Continuous.

      Навскидку еще скажу вам случай, когда оба глагола в главном и придаточном идут в одном времени — Zero Conditional. When the weather is fine, I go for a walk — Когда погода хорошая, я иду гулять. (оба глагола в Present Simple)

      • А в этом примере разве нельзя (теоретически) использовать Present Continuous?

        I am listening to the radio while Mary is cooking dinner

        • Можно, если вы говорите о данном моменте

          • Максим | 20.05.2016 в 13:47 |

            Спасибо,за ответ.Но все равно не понятно — почему по умолчанию данный пример переводиться в прошедшем времени?Просто часто сталкиваюсь с такой ситуацией при выполнении упражнений)

  16. спасибо большое!

  17. В 6 упражнении 2.Kathy_____ (travel) to Caracas next month to attend a conference. В ответах — is travelling, но разве это не в Future Simple?

    • Запланированное действие в будущем. Future simple лучше употреблять для спонтанных решений

  18. I started learning / have been learning Spanish a few months ago I did not obtain / have not obtained a qualification in it yet

    Подскажите, а почему в данном случае have been learning не подходит?

  19. Здравствуйте! Думаю, что в предложении Kathy_____ (travel) to Caracas next month to attend a conference — логичнее было бы использовать конструкцию to be going to, так как это запланированное действие. Поправьте пожалуйста, если я ошибаюсь.

    • В данном конкретном предложении не лучше. Ибо запланированное действие — это как раз Present Continuous. be going to — собираться (можно и без планирования). Но, я думаю никто бы не посчитал ответ с be going to — неверным, хотя Present Continuous мне нравится в разы больше.

  20. А можно расписать времена глаголов в 9 упражнении?

    Заранее благодарю.

    • Данила, не очень понимаю, что значит расписать времена... Ответы есть. Написать, какое это время??? Написать, почему именно это время????
