Describe an effective way to study for a vocabulary test.
Creating flashcards and quizzing yourself or having a friend quiz you can be extremely helpful. When practicing with the cards, try to state the definition and use the word in context before flipping the card over to check your answer. As you begin to feel confident about knowing certain definitions consistently, you may set those cards aside. Any words that you hesitate on or get wrong should go back in the pile to be practiced again.

Choose the verb that best completes the sentence: Chester and Henrietta _________ skiing in the Alps every December, until Chester sprained his ankle. a. go b. are going c. goes d. went
Give an example of how a noun can be both a countable and a noncountable noun, depending on the situation.
Love Henrietta was the love of Chester's life. (Here it is uncountable because love is referring to a concept that cannot be counted individually.) Playing the ukulele and singing were among Henrietta's many loves. (Here it is a countable noun because it refers to Henrietta having several pastimes, which could be counted.)
