With the A level exams fast approaching this is a post on widening knowledge of vocabulary with a focus on synonyms and false friends. The PowerPoint starts with a resource from an earlier post which has been updated (+ two mistakes I noticed have been corrected). The crossword is to consolidate the presenation but I find it works better if you do the crossword together as a group. The PowerPoint then goes on to focus on synonyms. I go through the list of synonyms which is not the most exciting of tasks, but an important one. We then do some past exam paper exercises to put all of this into practice.
