Many words in the English language are easily confused because they look and sound alike but in fact mean different things.
People often muddle up the words appraise and apprise because they are so similar, but the two words have different meanings. To appraise something is to assess or evaluate it, but to apprise means to notify, e.g. 'the prisoner was apprised of his rights'.
In this activity, we will practise distinguishing between words that many people, even adults, often find confusing. You may find a dictionary helpful.
