Hi Alex, I have a question about item # 10 on http://www.usingenglish.com/files/pdf/cambridge-first-certificate-fce-key-word-sentence-transformations-pairwork.pdf. The sentence “Italian cheese is being labelled as Russian to the sanctions” makes no sense to me. Is there a missing verb or participle?
Well spotted. As far as I remember, it should be “due to the sanctions”.
Sorry, that’s wrong. The missing word is actually “avoid”.
