Complete the gaps

In this exercise you have to put the right word in the gaps. Follow these tips to get top marks.

  • Read the text carefully before and after the gap to help you choose the right word.
  • The words are often in a box. Careful! Sometimes there are more words than gaps.
  • If the words aren’t in a box, be careful with your spelling.
  • Start with the words you know and tick them off so you know which ones you've used.
  • If you don’t know an answer, write a word. You may be right!
  • If you write a word in the wrong gap, then another word in the exercise may be wrong too.
  • Check your answers carefully when you finish. Read the whole text to see what it sounds like.
