Nossa, vcs sao bem rapidos. Da proxima vez vou mandar algo mais desafiador!

 

This idea came up when I was doing this exercise from the Flo Joe website

(http://www.flo-joe.co.uk/cae/students/wordbank/pverb.htm ). Take a look.

...................................................................................................................................

Today's phrasal verb means: "to make a speech or piece of writing longer with unnecessary content"


He realised his speech was going to finish too soon so he had to ........ it out a bit.

 pad
 patch
 grow
 fill
 ...................................................................................................................................
Now you know the answer. The other expressions "BATB" and waffle are also correct altough the task version is the shorter one.

 

Thanks everyone!
