Change to Part 3 of the ECPE Listening Section


Until now, ECPE candidates would listen to but not see the questions in Part 3 of the Listening Section (radio reports). As of the May 2010 administration, candidates will be able not only to hear the specific questions for Part 3 but also to read them in their test booklets.
The change is part of the University of Michigan English Language Institute’s (ELI- UM) ongoing program of test review and renewal.

The change will take effect as of the next examination period in May 2010. In March 2010, the ELI- UM will publish a full sample test on its website for all teachers and candidates.

PHRASAL VERBS-SEPARABILITY


What is Separability?
Some phrasal verbs can separate to put the direct object between the verb and the particle. • I picked up the cookie from the floor • I picked the cookie up from the floor. Both of these sentences are correct. The phrasal verb “pick up” is separable. We can either put the direct object (the cookie) between “pick” and “up” or we can put it after the phrasal verb. Other phrasal verbs aren’t separable. • Watch out for the gun!
• Watch the gun out for! “Watch out” is not a separable phrasal verb. The first sentence is correct but the second sentence is wrong. We cannot put anything between “watch” and “out” or the phrasal verb will lose its meaning.

How do I know if a verb is separable or not?
 There is no rule to tell us if a phrasal verb is separable or not. The only way to learn if a phrasal verb is separable or not is by memorization. Διαβάστε περισσότερα...
