It is very easy to let simple grammar or spelling errors creep into written work, even when you know what the correct version should be.

In this activity, you can practise proofreading and correcting sentences that contain basic spelling and grammar errors. If you struggle with any of them, you can go back and do the activities that deal with those points.


It is also really important that you use the correct punctuation as you go.  Spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG) are really important in written English and can affect the number of marks you receive, so be careful!
