This blog is aimed mainly at advanced students of English as a foreign / second language, although it will hopefully also be of some interest to teachers. I intend it to be a mishmash of lessons, exercises and the occasional opinionated rant about the English language.
There are quite a few idiomatic pairs in English joined with 'and', such as 'bits and pieces'. Match the pairs and use them in context with this double quiz.
By default, the pairs are randomised when you open this exercise. If you would rather see them in alphabetical order, just uncheck the 'randomised' box. The exercise should load automatically. If there are any problems click on 'Start'
Use the 'next' and 'prev' buttons to cycle through the pages
You can vary the number of questions shown with the selector. This could be useful for printing, or for those with smaller screens. If you print, only the exercsie will show.
