When to use NO and NOT

 

Being back in the UK means getting to spend time with my beautiful nephew and nieces. However when they are little terrors, who move at 100km/hour, you need to stay on your toes and know how to say NO. This got me thinking about how and when we use the two negative words NO and NOT in the English language. I know this is an issue for many Spaniards speaking English, so let’s see if this post can help.

A generic rule, which should help a lot, is the following:

TOEIC Top Tips 26

TOEIC_Test_TipsSo you’re taking the TOEIC test, congratulations!

Love Speaking is here to give you some very helpful tips on how to successfully prepare yourself for the test every week. Read our top 2 tips for this week below.

Tip #1: Try some online TOEIC practice

Many sites now offer free or paid online TOEIC practice which you can easily find with a Google search. Like using a CD ROM, it is also a nice break from using a book and pen. You can also locate which type of questions you are weak at and identify where you can make significant improvement.

 

Tip #2: Learn whole English phrases

Speed of understanding is very important in both the Listening and Reading sections of the TOEIC test, and one thing that can really slow you down is trying to understand an English sentence word by word. You can make your comprehension much faster by learning whole common sentences of English such as “I look forward to hearing from you soon” and “That’s a pity” rather than the expressions “look forward” and “pity”. One good way of doing this is to buy a travel phrase book with CD, which will have common phrases like “Do you want fries with that?” which you can practice responding quickly to. Some of them are produced especially for Business travellers, so might be especially useful. You could also try learning any English language notices and announcements in your town, for example on the subway or buses.
