Reading to yourself

Activity 1:

Reading to yourself

[lo 3.1.9]

Now, we are going to end with another listening, reading and reasoning exercise, to end the way we started!

Read the following type of advertisement, which is so popular at the moment on our TV, TO YOURSELF .

“The Blidget Gadget is the item to have on your shelves if you want to be a successful sewer!

The Blidget Gadget cuts, stitches, folds, gathers, irons and labels.

Look how easy the Blidget Gadget is!

There is no pressure on your hand; you will have an attractive piece of furniture in your house, and an easy-to-assemble kit.

You, too, can come up with sophisticated sewing very quickly.

And you, too, can impress your friends and your husband’s boss and his wife by using the Blidget Gadget.

But you are mistaken if you think this is all you get. With the Blidget Gadget, you also receive a clear instruction booklet, a lace apron with your name on it, some needles and cotton reels and an attractive flat box for storing your items. And an attractive wall-hanging for keeping your sewing utensils: your scissors, needles and cotton.

So, sew your husband’s shirts, trousers, vests, underwear, pyjamas and handkerchiefs with the Blidget Gadget. You will be amazed at the result. And you will save yourself thousands of rand.

Or you can start your own business and make items to sell.

And this all costs: Not R300, not R200, but only R140.

So, to remind you of this astounding offer: This is what you get:

The Blidget Gadget cuts, stitches, folds, gathers, irons and labels.

It is easy

There is no pressure on your hand.

It is attractive.

It is easy to assemble.

It will impress your friends and business associates.

With it comes an instruction booklet, a lace apron, needles, cotton reels, flat box for storing, wall-hanging for scissors and other items.

It is easy to order.

Just phone 011 - 123456 now (what could be easier?) or visit The Gadget Shop in your town.

You can be the best dresser in town or be the owner of a successful business. For only R140.”
