Using shoes and clothes

quark_shoes_114

ūüė¶ I always use special shoes when I’m working in the laboratory.

Candidate: Ya ya ya Mr IELTS Examiner. I should say wear special shoes!¬†¬†But the¬†context is perfectly clear and you understand what I mean, right? I mean, you can easily picture the shoes I’m talking about, right?

Examiner: Yes, I understand. But you’re using weak verb/noun collocation, and so I have to give you a low score for vocabulary. Next time you want to translate ‘pake baju’, or ‘pake sepatu’, please ‘pake’¬†wear. OK?

Candidate: OK!
