Int+ e-mail errors

The following exercise is really for my Mon/Wed Int+ class, but of course, anyone is welcome to have a go.

Correct the mistakes in the following sentences.

1. I hope you will come to Madrid, not other city.
2. Please let me know where are you going and we organize all.
3. I'm happy to know that your parents let you come here one year in France. I'm sure that you enjoy your experience.
4. Even if you don't know yet the place you'll be, we could see each other...
5. That's all for now but we keep in touch to give you more advices.



Look at the following letters/e-mails. Can you guess the missing words?

Hi Jose,

You will find the answers to these exercises above.

BEAR IN MIND THAT verbs that come directly after a preposition take the "-ing" form.

Well done!
