e.g. We are trying to improve Nia’s confidence in her spoken English.

e.g. I am comfortable giving a presentation in English to my colleagues.

Couch – sofa 沙发

e.g. The results of the accounting test will not be released for two months. Nia will just have to be patient (there is nothing she can do to make the results come faster!)

Multiple Choice – when you have a question and then the test gives you some possible answers, and you have to choose the right one

D. Chicago
Essay – when you have to write out the whole answer to the question.
e.g. Should Chicago become the capital of the United States? Why or why not?

Proficient – familiar with a subject or tool and able to use and talk about what you know
e.g. I am proficient in auditing. I know the principles and methods that you have to use to run a successful audit. I am comfortable working on an audit.
e.g. I am proficient with Microsoft Excel.

Curate – to very carefully choose something based upon what you know of the person who is going to receive it
e.g. Since you are a fan of mystery novels, I have curated a selection of mystery books for you to take on this trip.

Grammar

I don’t know if I got it right – I don’t know whether I got it right
