    Practise different ways of expressing the same ideas or information in a text.

    Use the glossary, if there is one provided, to help you understand unfamiliar words.
  • Don't
    Don't miss any examples that are provided.

Writing

  • Do
    Leave time to check your answer for careless mistakes at the end. Try to check for spelling mistakes, verb and subject agreement, singular/plural nouns, tense mistakes and problems of fluency.
