I have been trying to prepare you for this level with several quizzes emphasizing several different verb tenses, and three bogs that explained sentences and a major grammar problem. On this level, you are actually supposed to write sentences. There is no way I can actually read your sentences, but I will give you sample sentences in the answer section for each one at the end of the blog. This is the first quiz on the fourth level using the red verbs. The red verbs are the most used verbs in the English language. Many students in my classes have learned to write perfect sentences by the time they get here. Good luck!
