Словообразование (CAE) Часть 13

И вот снова упражнения по словообразованию к учебнику Destination C1-C2. Для подготовки к централизованному тестированию должно хватить и Destination B2, но если вы хотите подстраховаться и уже выучили Destination B*, то можете заглянуть и в старший учебник из данной серии. Один из моих учеников в свое время залистав до дыр Grammar and Vocabulary for First Certificate принялся читать Grammar and Vocabulary for Cambridge Advanced and Proficiency. Не уверен, что это было нужно делать, но его результат на ЦТ был 99. Лишних знаний не бывает.
