Body Parts – Vocabulary Quiz

Howdy! Below you’ll find a blog prepared by a native English teacher. Here at Scrambled Eggs we like to prepare videos, news articles and exercises on grammar and vocabulary to help our students continue their learning outside of the classroom. Take a look at this quiz on body parts, we hope you enjoy it!

It isn’t always easy to remember a word. Often, when we forget the word for something we must use a technique called circumlocution, a very long term to refer to a very simple concept, the act of describing a word or an idea with my words where a single word would work just fine!

In this quiz you will read the hints and try to guess what body part the hints are describing. Once you finish, try to see how well you can describe these words! Write don’t some words and then try to write down hints to describe them, see if you can get a friend to guess what word, or words, you describe!

Prepositions of Place (with Bailey the Beagle)

Sometimes we lose our keys, our wallet, and even our cellphone!
It is very frustrating when we don’t know where things are or where they go. It is even worse when we don’t know how to say where things are and where they go!
On, under, over, above, into, between, behind, below, near, next to… and the list goes on!

There are so many ways to describe the position of things! How can we possibly remember them all?
But, have no fear, Scrambled Eggs is here with some common prepositions of place.

So next time you need to find that lost item, you can simply ask yourself (in English, of course) “Did I leave it on the kitchen counter?” or “Did it fall under the table?” maybe it even went behind the couch!

Our sweet Bailey Beagle will guide us through some of the more difficult prepositions of place. Hopefully her cuteness will help us to remember when to use those pesky prepositions!

“By the time…” | Future perfect

Talking about the future can be a difficult task, even for the most advanced speakers especially when you add special phrases to the mix. In this blog, we are going to be talking about the phrase by the time and how we can use it with the future perfect verb tense.

Wait… What is the future perfect?

Great question! The future perfect is used to talk about something that will be completed before a specific time in the future.

Will/won’t have + past participle

I will have finished this book.

He will have arrived.

It will have stopped raining.

We will have met her.

 

In these examples, the events (arriving, raining) will be completed.

 

Now, let’s look at a common phrase we can use to compliment the future perfect: by the time. We use this phrase to give a time period in which the action will be completed. For example:

 

By the time my mom gets home, I will have finished this book.

He will have arrived by the time I get on the train.

By the time she finishes her homework, it will have stopped raining.

We will have met her by the time you get here.

 

Here is a little quiz you can do to test your knowledge, good luck!
