Final Theoretical Exam:8: Paragraph Unscramble

The final set of question in the exam will require you to unscramble the sentences in a paragraph.

In order to do this you will have to be able to recognize the difference between: 'topic', 'supporting', 'detail', and 'concluding sentences'. You will also need to distinguish between different types of 'markers' e.g 'first', secondly', 'finally', 'also', 'that said'.

This exercise is worth five marks, so be careful. Marks will be deducted for the sentences that are out of order.

Try the following to test how you go. Answers are in the comments section.

__ Firstly, I will go to Australia to visit my family.
__ Then I will go to Korea to visit my 'grandson'.
__ I spent three years living in China and so have many friends there.
__ During the vacation I will go to a number of countries.
__ Finally I will go to China.
__ While it will be a very busy time, I hope that I will enjoy myself while I am away.
