UPPER-INTERMEDIATE Vydáno dne 27.05.2014

Anglické idiomy si lze procvičit poměrně zábavnou formou s anglickými muzikály. Zde jsou idiomy ze slavného muzikálu Evita, který v roce 1976 napsali Andrew Lloyd Webber a Tim Rice.



Tento muzikál je poměrně dlouhý a obsahuje velké množství idiomů, proto je test rozdělen na čtyři různé části. V této druhé, určené pro úroveň upper-intermediate, je vaším úkolem u každé otázky vybrat výraz, který se nejlépe hodí do vyznačených mezer v textu.

  9. EVA:
             I'm not talking of a hurried night,
             a frantic tumble, then a shy goodbye,
             creeping home before it gets too light…
             That­'s not the reason that I ________ your eye.
