answers295297313322viiThe revised edition of this book is designed with a greater emphasis on text andcollocation, in keeping with recent trends in the world of English as a ForeignLanguage. It also incorporates the many changes to the revised proficiencyexamination from December 2002, such as word formation and multiple wordmeaning. The book is also intended for use at the level of CAE, and includesnew exercises practising the formal/informal register transfer task.Most of the practice sections in the Grammar and Vocabulary sections reflectsuch changes, and where texts are retained from the first edition, they havebeen given more of an exam focus.However, the core of this highly successful book remains the same. Thegrammar section now includes some additional revision and more subtleadvanced points. Units on phrasal verbs, prepositions and linking devices arealso included. The grammatical information provided can be used for referencewhen needed, or worked through systematically.The vocabulary section includes topic-based vocabulary, collocations andidiomatic phrases. It also recycles work on prepositions, and phrasal verbs.The book can be used as a self-study reference grammar and practice book or assupplementary material in classes preparing for the CAE and Proficiency exams.If used for classwork, activities can be done individually or co-operatively inpairs or small groups.There are regular consolidation units which include forms of testing commonlyused in both exams and the material covers a range of difficulty appropriate toboth exams.vmExplanationsBasic contrasts:present simpleand presentcontinuousState verbs andevent (action ordynamic) verbsPresent simple generally refers to:Facts that are always trueWater boils at 100 degrees Celsius.HabitsBritish people drink a lot of tea.States/ don't like gangster films.Present continuous (progressive) generally refers to actions which are inprogress at the moment. These can be temporary:I'm staying in a hotel until I find a fiat.They can be actually in progress:The dog is sleeping on our bed!Or they can be generally in progress but not actually happening at themoment:I'm learning to drive.State verbs describe a continuing state, so do not usually have a continuousform. Typical examples are:believe, belong, consist, contain, doubt, fit, have, know, like, love, matter, mean,need, own, prefer, seem, suppose, suspect, understand, want, wishSome verbs have a stative meaning and a different active meaning.
