Part two of the Use of English paper (Open Cloze) mainly tests grammar words, like the ones in the previous exercise. Many students think that this is one of the most difficult parts in the exam. Don’t worry if your score is not very high. This part represents about 3% of the total mark. However, it’s important to get as many marks as possible from this section.

Read the following text
without thinking about the missing words.

The Start Of A Teaching Career

It was while living on a kibbutz in Israel that Craig first became interested (0) teaching English. His Israeli neighbour, (1) worked with foreign volunteers, wanted to learn English in order (2) speak to the attractive girls from abroad. In spite of the fact (3) he only had an old grammar book from (4) 1960’s, Craig succeeded (5) teaching his friend a little English.

The pleasure and satisfaction he got from this experience took him completely (6) surprise. So much so that he decided to go to London and do a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
After (7) than 13 years of teaching English professionally, Craig hasn’t lost (8) enthusiasm and he still thinks of teaching (9) a hobby.

(10) days he lives in Valencia, and a few years (11) he started a website called La Mansion del Inglés with (12) friend Luis. During the last four years they (13) helped thousands of students to improve (14) English, and La Mansion del Inglés is now one of the most popular sites on (15) internet.

 

• Now read the text again more slowly and write one word in each space.
• Look before and
after each gap.
• Think about grammar words; pronouns, auxiliary verbs, prepositions etc.
• If the gap is difficult, and you can’t think of a suitable word, leave it until the end and continue to the next gap.
• When you finish, go back to the difficult gaps and think again.
• Don’t leave any space blank. An empty gap is always wrong.
