  • I think we have had far too many exams this semester.3 What do you think?

  • What do you mean exactly?
  • Well, I mean, exams are excellent to test one’s progress,4 but having an excess of exams impedes the learning process in my opinion.
  • You have a good point. And, If I remember rightly, we’ve had over ten mock exams5 this semester. I feel burnt out.

  1. Am I being told the right information here? La voz pasiva con el presente continuo (primera persona), ‘am I being told’, se utiliza aquí para poner el foco en la acción de ‘being told’.
  2. An exam is being held next week. El presente continuo en la voz pasiva ‘is being held’ se utiliza para poner énfasis en ‘exam’.
  3. I think we have had far too many exams this semester. El presente perfecto ‘have had’ se usa aquí porque la experiencia de ‘having exams’ continúa hasta el momento presente.
  4. Exams are excellent to test one’s progress. Recuerda, ‘s es la forma posesiva. Lo que está poseído es ‘progress’. Por ejemplo, my brother’s friend. ‘Friend’ está siendo poseído, por lo tanto, 'brother' necesita la forma posesiva ’s’.
  5. We’ve had over ten mock exams. Un ‘mock exam’ es un examen que es como un examen real, sin embargo, no es el oficial.
  6. If exams are being held every other week… El presente continuo en la voz pasiva, ‘are being held’, se utiliza aquí para describir la acción de ‘exams being held’.
  7. Then it’s... No confundas ‘it’s’ con ‘its’, este último es el adjetivo posesivo y el primero es la contracción de ‘it is’. Por ejemplo, I like the dog and its toy. = adjetivo posesivo. It’s a nice day. = contracción de ‘it is’.
