INTRODUCCIN
Trminos como rephrasing o rewriting son bien conocidos entre los
estudiantes de Ingls: se trata de expresar el mismo mensaje pero utilizando
una estructura gramatical distinta a la propuesta en el enunciado.
Este libro es continuacin de 1.000 ejercicios de rephrasing. La diferencia entre los dos estriba en la dificultad de los ejercicios propuestos: mientras que el primero va del nivel pre-intermediate al upper-intermediate,
este segundo abarca desde el intermediate hasta el advanced.

As pues, puede resultar til en la preparacin de exmenes como Selectividad, Ciclo Superior de Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas , First
Certificate, CAE, Proficiency, etc.

ORGANIZACIN DEL LIBRO


Cada uno de los 50 tests de este libro consta de dos partes, A y B, que son
complementarias o reversibles, aunque con algunas limitaciones. Esto quiere decir lo siguiente:
C~alquier ejercicio de la parte A tiene su respuesta en la parte B del
mismo ~eSt. En el supuesto de que haya ms de una respuesta posible, las distintas opciones aparecen en negrita y separadas por barras o bien sealadas
con asteriscos. Hay que advertir que las respuestas ofrecidas aqu son las consideradas como ms comunes, lo cual no quiere decir que no existan otras.
Cualquier ejercicio de la parte B tiene su resp11esta en la parte A del
mismo test. En este caso la respuesta siempre es nica, por razones obvias de
complejidad. Esto puede llevar consigo que resulte dificil acertarla; Es muy
probable, pues, que el alumno produzca frases correctas que no pueda comprobar al no encontrarlas como soluciones.
