Buying a car is never an easy decision. The last car that I purchased was back in 2011. It was more of a need than a choice to purchase a car. The last car I had at caught a fire for about 3 times in one year. Whatever the problem was I will go and get it fixed repeatedly. The last time my car caught on fire was in 2011 and this time it really put fear in me. I decided to buy a car because of safety reasons. During this time, the economy was trying to get back on a good foot. I have a job at the time. Even though I had a job, it still was going to be a burden to pay for another car. My credit was not so good at the time. Therefore, I had to get special financing. I called many dealerships that has special financing.

I know the interest rate was going to be very high due to this factor.

Following declines in seven of the past eight years, the United States this year has equaled its worst score ever in the Index of Economic Freedom. Ratings for labor freedom, business freedom, and fiscal freedom have flagged notably and the regulatory burden is increasingly costly”.
Buying a car used to be so easy at one time. All dealerships will have the same vehicles at the same price. In today's market with the economy the way it is you may go to one dealership and another dealership may have the same vehicle but at a different price. This makes the buyer very skeptical about purchasing a new vehicle due to the economics; many buyers have bad credit because they are…...

...GLOSSARY OF COMMON GRAMMATICAL AND WRITING TERMS Grammar terminology is useful when we describe and correct problems with writing. Though we’ve tried to de-emphasize terminology and teach through examples throughout this book, sometimes you need a definition. We’ve tried to emphasize areas that are both commonly used and commonly misunderstood, such as the use of modal auxiliaries like can, could, shall, should, etc. Punctuation marks are not included in this list; they have a separate section in this Appendix. “People who are experts in grammar don’t always write well, and many people who write well no longer think consciously about grammar … but when something goes wrong in a sentence, a knowledge of grammar helps in recognizing the problem and provides a language for discussing it.” — H.

...раскрывается суть нового грамматического явления, дается правило, в котором объясняются принципы выполнения соответствующих грамматических операций. Весь новый грамматический материал приводится в рубрике "Grammar Discoveries". Наряду с объяснением назначения, основных случаев употребления и формообразования нового грамматического явления, как правило, проводятся параллели с аналогичными по смыслу и назначению грамматическими явлениями родного языка. Затем следует серия коммуникативно окрашенных упражнений тренировочного характера, в процессе выполнения которых автоматизируется употребление новой грамматики. Следом идут речевые упражнения, предполагающие использование данного грамматического явления для решения поставленных перед учащимися коммуникативных задач. Особенностью предъявления грамматического материала в 7 классе является и то, что наряду с дедуктивным подходом к ознакомлению с грамматической стороной речи (от правила к практике) широко используется и индуктивный путь. В этом случае учащимся обеспечивается возможность наблюдать за употреблением грамматического явления в речи, а затем им дается обобщение по данному явлению в виде правила. Так, например, происходит овладение видовременной формой глаголов Passive Voice. Информация подобного рода также дается в рубрике "Grammar Discoveries" Обобщение (в виде правила) и многочисленные тренировочные упражнения обеспечивают осознание и дальнейшую автоматизацию соответствующего грамматического действия.

...Lesson Plan: Grammar: Reported speech The level of the students: Upper Intermediate The age: Adult students Aims: to present the function of talking about the past using three types of reported speech: statements, questions and commands/requests/suggestions. To clarify the use of reported questions introduced with the verbs ask, inquire, wonder or the expression want to know. To highlight the difference between up-to-date reporting and out-of-date reporting. To consolidate students` knowledge on the use of certain words and time expressions related to reported speech, for example now-then, immediately, today-that day, yesterday – the day before, the previous day. To provide controlled and semi-controlled practice through drilling of the function and the structure. Function: Expressing the past tense with the help of reported statements and reported questions. Time: 90 minutes Assumptions: Students know the use of tenses in direct Speech. They know Present Simple and Present Continuous, Past Simple and Past Continuous, Present Perfect and Past Perfect, Past Perfect Continuous, Future tenses. Anticipated problems and solutions: Students may confuse the use of tenses in direct speech and reported speech. Make sure that you demonstrate the difference using concept questions, good examples and diagrams. Students may have misunderstanding of the functions of the verb tell, say, ask. Make sure that you provide students with good situations to show the difference......
