Click here to access a booklet that has been designed to help students consider the subtle differences between 36 pairs of similar words.
The booklet can be used and adapted in a number of ways, but I’ve suggested a process below.
- Ask students to define the two words and then explain the subtle differences in meaning
- Discuss how the words are used in the two short sentences
- Ask students to construct two sentences of their own
- Ask students to think of other synonyms
Hopefully, the word pairings will lead to some good quality discussion and debate. You can access a similar booklet on commonly confused words by clicking here.
Hope the stuff’s useful. Feedback always welcome –
