En los posts anteriores hemos visto 75 ejemplos de transformations (Part 5 del Use of English). Si llevas bien esos ejemplos, vas muy fino para sacar muchos de los 16 puntos correspondientes a dicha parte -8 frases a 2 puntos-. Las 5 partes suman 63 puntos, así que las Transformations son la parte con más peso ya que supone más del 25% del total.

Ahora comienza la serie de posts dedicados a la Part 4. Son 5 bloques de 3 frases cada una con un gap (hueco). Hay que encontrar la palabra adecuada que encaje correctamente en las 3 frases, así que hay que leer SIEMPRE las 3 frases antes de decidirse, ya que una palabra puede ser fantástica para dos de las frases pero no encajar con la tercera. Ánimo!!
