ENG 5

Our writing test is on Tuesday next week.

Place: in the main auditorium
Time: 08.00-10.00.

Let me know in advance, if you would like to have/need additional time. 

By the way: 

Both cannot and can not are acceptable spellings, but the first is much more usual. You would use can not when the ‘not’ forms part of another construction such as ‘not only’. For example:

These green industries can not only create more jobs, but also promote sustainable development of the land.

ENG 5 – NA16, SA16A

Hope you are not too puzzled and frustrated by your experiences in writing your letters. Only some months ago your writing was praised; now I seem dissatisfied, saying that your writing isn’t quite “there” yet, saying that the writing is “lacking something.”
You haven’t changed–your writing is still mechanically sound, your descriptions are accurate, you’re saying smart things. But I am still not happy. It is not just a matter of higher standards: Often, what I am asking of you is not just something better, but something different.
So, today, we’re going to practise some more writing:

To show the next step:
-first(ly)/second(ly), to begin/start with
-in the first/second place
-first and foremost/first and most importantly
-another, then, after, next, afterwards, third(ly)
-finally, ultimately, lastly, last but not least
