    Only your use of the word "fabricate" is actually in-place here. "Extol" is a word which isn't used any more, and "acquiesce" means to accept something, not to comply with a demand.
    Funny that, fabricate is the only word I had actually heard of. Can't blame a girl for tryin'.

    Why is English so hard?

    The exam went well. Thanks for the help answer advice. I toned down the dashes and only used semi colons when I was sure.

      It isn't. I'd be very interested where you found those words though.

      LOL. Please don't listen to this advice. It's wrong.

        LOL. I wasn't giving any advice, but my opinion

        If you want to learn English, learn English. I assume that's why you're wanting to do a qualification in it? Passing exams and scoring points is pointless, what you learn won't be of any use to you.

        I already have a qualification it. I want a better grade.
