Errores Selectividad





RECOPILACIÓN DE ERRORES PARA TENER EN CUENTA EN SELECTIVIDAD
Aquí tenéis una serie de errores que soléis cometer cuando redactáis los textos de Selectividad. También os vendrá bien para practicar el Use of English, porque, a veces, te piden que arregles una oración que está mal escrita, o cosas así.
Intentad arreglar las frases sin mirar la solución. Al principio mirad cuántos errores tiene (lo pone en el siguiente renglón, además, en algunos casos, también indicará qué tipo de error, gramatical, de orden, de ortografía, etc.), buscad los errores. Si veis que no podéis solucionarlo, entonces, y sólo entonces, mirad la solución. Quiero que estéis muy pendientes de todo, ¿ok? En las primeras oraciones he puesto también la traducción directa, pero luego sois vosotros los que traduciréis y veréis el sentido de la frase para corregirla.
Otra cosita: los errores que aparecen y las correcciones hechas están escritas en British English. Eso significa que si en algún momento hay algún error en American English, éste será tratado y corregido como tal, por supuesto se os avisará que la oración está en American English, por si no os habíais dado cuenta. Las correcciones no las he subido todavía, voy a ser un poco mala. Os dejo tiempo para trabajar y dentro de unos días tendréis aquí todos los resultados
