    Fall/ Feel/ Fill ( stage 2)


    In this test, we studied the basis of using three verbs which "look very much alike" and thus, we tried to avoid mistaking them. 

     

    FALL/ FEEL / FILL

    The basis was very simple. Yet, that simplicity may be challenged by the use of adverbs (phrasal verbs), of many prepositions and adjectives which thus modify the meaning of those verbs totally. 

    Meeting them, learning them and remembering them is then the only way to understand the many expressions they give. 

    I) To FILL, FILLED, FILLED is a regular verb.
