Autora: Verónica Amaro Bermejo

Quiz your English is one of the most enjoyable ways to build your English language skills  while you are making friends with other genuine language users from all over the world. Local language versions are available for Mexico, Brazil, and Spain.

This app offers a range of levels, so learners of all abilities can join in the fun, and there are also in-app Cambridge English exam packs to help if you are preparing for an exam.

If you’re a grammar lover and you enjoy learning English on your phone while on the bus or during your lunch break, this app is perfect for you.

Quiz Your English was produced by Cambridge University Press, so you know it’s a quality product.

It allows you to play against any other user in the world, and you can also invite and compete against your friends.

Set your profile by logging in with your Facebook or Google account, choose your country and you’re ready to play!

You’ll see different topics available, divided by level. Choose the level and topic you want to play and the app will find an opponent (a player to play against) for you.

Some packs of questions can only be accessed if you pay for them. This option can be helpful if you want to practice a specific topic, or if you want to get access to the Cambridge English Exams Pack, which will help you to practice for the official exams.

When playing against someone, you’ll get questions to fill in the gaps with four possible answers. If you answer correctly, you can go to the next question, but if you make a mistake, the game will end.

After each game, you’ll be able to see who won, your points and a menu where you can choose to play again, challenge someone (invite them to play against you) or see the world’s and your country’s rankings.

Shepherd’s Pie

 Shepherd’s Pie is primarily made from minced lamb and potatoes. Many families will make this dish using beef, but then it should actually be referred to as Cottage Pie, as shepherds only herd sheep (duh). 

Most Brits would agree that Shepherd’s Pie is best eaten at home with your family and, in fact, the dish is not often served in restaurants.

 Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington is a fillet of steak coated in patê and then rolled in pastry. Although the dish shares its name with the famous Duke of Wellington, it actually shares no link with the British nobility. In reality, it is thought that Beef Wellington was based around the French dish filet de bœuf en croûte (fillet of beef in pastry).

Beef Wellington is served in posh pubs and restaurants up and down the country.

Reading comprehension is an intentional, active process that occurs before, during and after a person reads a particular piece of writing.

What is the reading process? What do we do during the reading process? The following ideas can sum up the main things that happen on each stage.

The reading process has three stages: The initial stage, prereading or before reading, then the second one that happens while reading and the third and last one is the post reading or exploring and extending your reading.

A phrasal verb is a phrase that consists of a verb with a preposition or an adverb, or both. In many cases the meaning of the phrasal verb cannot be deduced from its separate elements. In addition, many phrasal verbs are polysemous i.e., they have more than one meaning. There are also difficulties with the grammar of phrasal verbs, particularly with the position of the particles, in that some phrasal verbs are ‘separable’ (the particle can be moved), while some are ‘inseparable.’ Quite apart from all this, there are literally thousands of them
