Business Spotlight - - LANGUAGE TEST -

Be­ing in­ter­ested in dif­fer­ent top­ics can lead to in­ter­est­ing mo­ments. Anna tells Sue about a film she saw re­cently and re­ally liked. Com­plete the sen­tences with the cor­rect ad­jec­tives.

It was so (A) bor­ing / grip­ping, and it had such a (B) com­pelling / dreary plot. Maybe a bit (C) con­vo­luted / sim­ple, so you have to pay at­ten­tion — but ev­ery­thing is ex­plained in the end. The char­ac­ters were to­tally (D) far-fetched / con­vinc­ing. They were real to me! There are some (E) hi­lar­i­ous / mis­er­able mo­ments, too. My stom­ach was hurt­ing from laugh­ing so much. And the end­ing was the best part — (F) dis­mal / stun­ning. I loved it. I’m not sur­prised it got (G) dread­ful / glow­ing re­views on all the web­sites. Ab­so­lutely (H) out­stand­ing / dis­ap­point­ing. You’ll love it, too, I’m sure. I can rec­om­mend the film — but don’t bother with the book. I didn’t even fin­ish it.
