Word formations

The third part of the Use of English paper in the First Certificate Examination is word formation where you have to use a root such as 'able' and create an appropriate word (disable, unable, ability) to fill the gap in a text. Think first .... if you need a verb, adjective, noun or adverb in the sentence! This can be done using clues such as word order. For example, if there is an article preceding the gap,  you will need to place a noun after it. If there is already a noun after the gap,

then you will need an adjective etc.

Litter and Rubbish - For Ana

What is Rubbish?

Rubbish is the stuff that people throw away. It might be broken, empty or something that we don’t want any more. We all throw away rubbish every day. Think about your lunch or dinner. To What rubbish was left over?

What is litter?

We should all throw our rubbish into the bin, but some people are too lazy or don’t care and drop it on the gound. This is litter!
