Functional Skills Reading - proofreading L1/L2

Functional Skills Reading - proofreading L1/L2

Resource contains six Functional Skills proofreading activites for L1 and L2. I tend to use these at the start of the class. I give the learners a short time frame and see who can spot the most errors in the time given. We then read through the text as a group agreeing on the corrections. They could also be used as individual work and learners could rewrite the texts correcting them as they go.
