They instantly start flinging the most strange and difficult twists imaginable at you; no one ever "does" something, they "would be willing to do" it, or "might venture to dare to do" it, with the result that you sometimes get four or five layers of embedded clauses within a single sentence. It seems like the purpose of the exercises is to trick the students into making mistakes, so their old British schoolmaster can smack them down and tell them how stupid they are.
