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 illicit and elicit because they are so similar, but the two words have different meanings. If something is illicit, it is illegal or forbidden, but if you elicit information from somebody, you are drawing the information out of them.
In this activity, we will practise distinguishing between words that many people, even adults, often find confusing. You may find a dictionary helpful.
