Read the text and fill in the gaps. Tips
  • Read the whole text without thinking about gaps. Catch the main idea of the text.
  • Think about the type of word you need (noun, verb, pronoun, article, etc.).
  • Read the answers. Choose the one you think is best. Look at the words which come before and after the gap.
  • Take away any answers which you know are not correct (if you don’t know which answer is right).
  • Read the sentence again with your answer in the gap to check it.
  • Never leave gaps blank!
