I already had a quiz created for upper intermediate, but it obviously wasn’t challenging enough for higher levels, so I hope this one does the job as you will find approximately 60 expressions to practise with.

I’m very grateful to Collins Dictionary online where I found loads of helpful examples along with pronunciation videos. It’s a real wonder that more students don’t use this site as a learning tool because it offers valuable information for more advanced students.
