Apart from the use of INVERSION, another way to emphasise our words both in the written and spoken language is the use of cleft sentences. With the help of these structures, we can help our reader or listener to get ready for our message.

Below you have some explanations and activities you can do from home.

  • This is a link to a PDF worksheet created by Maribel González, teacher from EOI Oviedo.
  • Here you are a link to the site Carmenlu’s site, a teacher from EOI Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife. She has created some online activities to help you with this grammar issue.
  • Finally, you can use this last link from EOI MIERES to revise not only cleft sentences, but inversion and other grammar issues.

And, of course, you have your book and the resources given in class. Please try to understand and master cleft sentences if you want to improve your command of English.
