Welcome back to class. After our holidays break I’m sure you are eager to start learning again. Today’s new topic is “inversion”, and I know you already hate it, but here I am to make things easier for you. As this is a “tricky issue” I think we need further practice, and this is the aim of this post. I’m going to leave you some links for you to review and practise. Here we go.

  • Here you are an explanation of the expressions most frequently used with inversion: Karen’s Linguistic Issues.
  • Here you have some online activities with auto-correction from the City University of Hong Kong. You won’t see the answers if you check “check answers”, but if you click on “show answers”.
  • Finally we have some online actitives from English tenses.

Remember, if you want to show that you have a high level of English you have to use inversion if possible, of course.

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.


Before Easter we worked with THE USE OF INVERSION FOR EMPHASIS in class. As this is a “tricky issue” I think we need further practice, and this is the aim of this post. I’m going to leave you some links for you to review and practise. Here we go.
