Luckily, Unfortunately, Despite/In spite of, Although

We all know how difficult it is to practice using conjunctions despite trying our best! Luckily, we created this fantastic exercise to help you!

This grammar exercise focuses on a few important conjunctions that may be difficult to understand and even harder to practice outside the classroom. Keep in mind the conjunctions ‘despite/in spite of’ and ‘although’ show a contrast, but ‘luckily’ and ‘unfortunately’ show an opinion.

Beware of the construction of ‘although’ and ‘despite/in spite of’

Although + subject + verb

Although she is young, she is very independent.

Despite/in spite of + noun/pronoun OR verb + ing

Despite the bad weather, we enjoyed ourselves

In spite of being a millionaire, he lives in a very small flat

 Try to fill in the gaps below using the proper conjunction – Luckily,… Unfortunately,… Despite/In spite of… Although…

Luckily, Unfortunately, Despite/In spite of, Although

Fill in the gaps.

Body Parts – Vocabulary Quiz

Howdy! Below you’ll find a blog prepared by a native English teacher. Here at Scrambled Eggs we like to prepare videos, news articles and exercises on grammar and vocabulary to help our students continue their learning outside of the classroom. Take a look at this quiz on body parts, we hope you enjoy it!

It isn’t always easy to remember a word. Often, when we forget the word for something we must use a technique called circumlocution, a very long term to refer to a very simple concept, the act of describing a word or an idea with my words where a single word would work just fine!

In this quiz you will read the hints and try to guess what body part the hints are describing. Once you finish, try to see how well you can describe these words! Write don’t some words and then try to write down hints to describe them, see if you can get a friend to guess what word, or words, you describe!
