NEW DICTIONARY: WORDS USED IN SENTENCES (B2.2) (C.1)

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING SKILLS, YOU MIGHT FIND A POST WRITTEN BY MY COLLEAGUE, CRISTINA CABAL INCREDIBLY USEFUL. IT’ S ABOUT A NEW DICTIONARY ONLINE CALLED SENTENCE.DICT WHERE THEY USE WORDS YOU NEED IN SENTENCES (IN CONTEXT) FOR YOU TO SEE THE WAY THEY REALLY COLLOCATE IN ENGLISH. YOU HAVE A SCREENSHOT OF THE WORDS “FAKE” AS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT FAKE NEWS, BUT IF YOU´RE INTERESTED, I DO RECOMMEND READING CRISTINA´S POST.
