    These rational cloze question sets are adapted from JPN Perak’s Modul Cemerlang Bahasa Inggeris Amanjaya SPM 2018. Unfortunately I don’t have the original link to the material. Please let me know if you do.

    [DW] Informal Letter: Making a Choice (Hotel vs Homestay)

    Hello, how are you? Today we’re going to look at a DW question, an Informal Letter. Is it everyone’s favourite DW format, I wonder? I’ve had many students tell me it’s the easiest one to write. Good for you 😉

    Disclaimer: The original question is from 2018 trial paper (Penang).

    Question:
    Your family is planning to go for a holiday at the end of the year. Your brother/ sister has asked you to choose either to stay in a hotel or a homestay. He/she has given you some information about the two places. Write a letter to your brother/sister stating your choice.

    In your letter, you should:

    • Describe all the details of the two places
    • State which place you think is more suitable
    HOTEL
    – in town
    – RM150 per person
    – complimentary breakfast
    – swimming pool
    – close to shopping complex
    – (suggest one more idea)
    HOMESTAY
    -in village
    -RM80 per person
    – own cooking
    – barbecue pit
    – closer to nature
    – (suggest one more idea)

    Sample Answer by Students (Edited and Cleaned):
    Remember that a good essay does NOT have to be lengthy. Also, remember that the sample given is only a sample. If you’re a student, it is best if you try to answer the question yourself and have a teacher mark your essay.

    [Google Forms MCQ Quiz] – 1119/1 Paper 2 Section A (Kelantan UP1 2019)

    Good evening, students! I hope everyone is doing fine today. I originally wanted to upload a screencast today but there wasn’t enough time to prepare the materials. If you can spare a little bit of time, why not sit down and spend 25 minutes to answer these test questions?

    Don’t stress yourself out, though. Relax, set your timer with your phone (yes, timing yourself is a good practice!), and answer the questions. Try NOT to use the dictionary or ask for assistance to assess your real performance.
