Let´s Practise!!!


Have something done

If you 'have something done', you get somebody else to do something for you.

  • I'm going to have my hair cut.
  • She's having her house redecorated.
  • I'm having a copy of the report sent to you

In informal English, we can replace 'have' by 'get'.

  • We're getting a new telephone system installed.
  • They will be getting the system repaired as quickly as they can.
  • I got the bill sent direct to the company.

We can also use 'have/got something done' in situations where something bad has happened to people or their possessions. This is not something they wanted to happen.

  • John had all his money stolen from his hotel bedroom.
  • We had our car damaged by a falling tree.
  • I got my nose broken playing rugby.


Follow these links and do the exercises to practise for the test.

3)Suggest, Would Rather, Would Prefer.


  • Would you rather eat pizza or pasta?

  • I would rather eat pizza.



  • Would you prefer to eat pizza or pasta?

The structure of these sentences are the same except for one 
small difference:

followed by an 

Subject  +  Would  +  Rather  +  Base Verb

  • I would rather go to a different restaurant.

Subject  +  Would  +  Prefer  +  To  +  Verb


  • I would prefer to live in a warm country.

  • She would prefer to meet on Monday.

Not comes before the verb with both rather and prefer.


  • I would rather not go to work today.

  • I would prefer not to play a game.
