Finding the Words, a book of 42 A4 worksheets for photocopying, is designed primarily for improving reading and vocabulary skills. Many exercises are of the ‘cloze’ type, in which different kinds of words or phrases are omitted from a passage and readers are asked either to supply them or to choose from a given selection. In some cases, several sentences are left out of a piece, providing a framework for writing practice. Other exercises involve using a dictionary or thesaurus; explaining word meanings; giving synonyms or antonyms.
The material ranges in level from short, fairly easy pieces in larger print to longer more complex ones. Some of the topics covered are: fox-hunting, water shortages, food scares, weddings, home security, household appliance instructions, sport, fiction, & news stories. Several pieces are humorous. There are 4 pages of signs and notices in which the student has to find and correct one error. Most students, other than absolute beginners, should be able to tackle some of the worksheets.
