Activity 3:

To work with sentences (using a range of punctuation)

To work with sentences (tenses)

[lo 6.2.6]

  • While studying tourism, it is no good ignoring language rules, so we do need to look more closely at how to use punctuation and how to use the past tense correctly.

1. Rewrite the following paragraphs filling in the capital letters and missing punctuation marks.

mr peter arendse a tourist from new york arrives in happyvale he is staying at happy farm guest house in main street on tuesday he visits the winery and the national history museum then he goes to cine 1 to see pearl harbour

he says i always enjoy touring but the san paintings on a cave wall in the happiness mountains are the most exciting thing i have ever seen

2. When you have completed this activity, write down FIVE punctuation rules that govern the changes you made.

3. When you have punctuated the paragraphs above correctly, rewrite the paragraphs in the past tense. Identify the verbs first before you start. That will make it easier!

Activity 4:

To write to communicate information

[lo 4.1]

’Have passport. Will travel’

  • When you travel abroad or to a neighbouring country, you have to have a passport. Perhaps you have never filled in a passport application form.
  • Your educator will give you an application form for a passport. Fill in the necessary details.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
