EXERCISE: IMPROVING THIS SENTENCE(S):

What comes before:

Review of Ngozi’s We Should All Be Feminists
In this essay Ngozi Adichie offers a moST inclusive definition of feminism. Drawing on anecdotes from her adolescence and adult life, she attempts to strike down stereotypes and unpack the baggage usually associated with the term.

This book is a very short adaptation of the TED talk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie of the same name, it’s a great introduction into the topic of feminism and gives a brief insight into how it can go unnoticed in society.

A short adaptation of a TED talk of Ngozi’s by the same name, this brief essay / We Should All Be Feminists is a great introduction to the topic of feminism and how sexism can go unnoticed in society.

  2. “Advice” has no plural form, OK? Say, “Thanks for your advice”, or if you want to use a plural use “tips” (consejillos)
    /variid/ is the pronunciation of “varied”. I included the transcription because people often mispronounce this word!
    This post is based on a mistake another student made, but I shared it because it’s a great opportunity to pose an important language point for C1 learners.
    See you!
