Burns Night L1-L2 reading tasks

Based on an adapted newspaper report, this set of 26 reading questions covers many L1 and L2 Functional Skills English content descriptors. Unlike assessment papers, the 24 questions are arranged under topics so could be used for targeted revision: purpose and main points, detail and inference, punctuation (for understanding), style and tone, words and language, organisational features. Some questions are deliberately challenging and you may want all learners to tackle all the questions.

Editor's note

Every year I say I'm going to create a Burns Night resource and every year (until this one) I leave it too late! An answer sheet is now available to resource contributors. See answer sheets for more info. Happy Burns Night!
