And since that time they (begin) inventing their own musical instruments. Now their lives (be) quite varied. They still (invent) new instruments; but Bernard recently (start) working with children as well. He (help) them to discover music without having to read written notes. He and Francis sometimes (travel) too giving concerts on their instruments or setting up exhibitions. Bernard's main complaint? The telephone. 'When an artist (work) ', he said, 'and he (have) to run to the telephone,
something (break) inside. I (agree) with the sculptor who once (say) that freedom for an artist (mean) having a secretary'.
2. It (rain) when we (arrive) at the coast but by midday the rain (stop).'We (think) the rain (last) all day and we (be) very glad it (not/do) because we (want) to do swimming. We (find) a cafe where we (offer) a nice meal. By the time we (finish) lunch the sun (come) out and the temperature (rise) to 30 degrees. We all (run) down to the beach and after we (change) into our swimming things we (dive) in the sea.

A friend of mine (want) to come as well so we (look) at some brochures from the travel agent's. We (read) for about an hour when my friend (find} the perfect holiday - two weeks in Hawaii. We (be) very excited about it. Finally the day of our holiday (arrive). We just (leave) the house when the phone (ring). I (run) back into the house, but the phone (stop) by the time I (reach) it.

Before the policemen (leave) they (tell) me that I (inform) as soon as the bike (find). However, there (be) a happy ending to this story.

I (find) those questions difficult to answer as I only (be) here two weeks. Don't forget to show the article to everyone!
7. With about 200.000 words in current usage, English (regard) as the richest of the world's languages. Few other languages can match this word power.

(be) a mixture of Latin and French. The Normans (give) us 'mansion, city, place', the Anglo-Saxons - 'king and town'. Latin and Greek (be) a fruitful source of vocabulary since the 16th century.
