A version of hangman featuring words from the Academic Word List (AWL), and a built-in homework activity for anyone who needs the practice.
The context of planning budget in legislation is about specific issues in health and education, almost 50 percent.
Very well done Anak Murid! A couple of comments..
1. ‘almost 50 percent’ doesn’t cohere very well with the rest of the sentence. Next time try using either a relative clause or a participle phrase: ‘which represent almost 50 percent.’; ‘representing almost 50 percent.’
2. The sentence might make more sense with ‘budget’ as the subject: “Budget planning in legislation is about specific issues in the context of health and education…”
Try another? 😉
Thanks Pak Guru.. how about this..
” In Indonesia plastic bags and air polution are specific issues in the context of the environment, representing almost 50 percent, that could only be tackled by strict legislation.
Nice! Except that here it’s not clear what the 50 percent refers to – 50 percent of what? Try adding ‘..of blah blah,’.
Also you say ‘could’, which means you’re not sure. Maybe ‘can’ is better?
Thanks Pak Guru..
A discussion of could and can: https://gurueap.com/2017/11/12/you-could-use-can-or-not/
Function, Contract, Role, Theory, Definition
According to the theory of law, a contract must has obvious definitions in term of rights, duties, roles, and functions between 2 companies who cooperated.
Couple of things..
cooperated – past simple tense, needs past simple time expression. Unless you’re talking about something that is always true – in that case use present simple tense.
must + v1
Evidence, Export, Consistent, Authority, Involved
A consistent increase of the number of seaweed export in some areas in NTT provides evidence that the local authorities, involved in making rules, have a significant influence on macroeconomics.
Fantastic! Increase + in; more than one export?
…. increase in…… seaweed exports….
Thanks for the correction Pak Guru..😊
Derived, Involved, Sector, Contract, Distribution
Indonesia government derived money from some contracts of the distribution of assets with private sectors, involved in transportation and tourism.
Almost! Try Googling “Indonesia government” and “private sectors”. Notice article use and word form.
The Indonesian government……the private sector….
A region required a major concept that identified problems and society basic needs based on a risk assessment by an independent institution.
1. I’m not sure a ‘concept’ can ‘identify’ something. Isn’t it something or someone that identifies a concept. 2. ‘required’ is often used as a noun modifier: ‘required risk assessment’. 3. ‘society’ is not used to pre-modify a noun – instead ‘social’ is used: ‘basic social needs’. For post-modification use ‘basic needs of society’. 4. It might be easier to fit your 5 words into more than one sentence!😉
Thanks Pak Guru..
Major, Required, Identified, Concept, Assessment
period, identified, income, analysis, benefit.
By the analysis of income, economists has successfully identified a large number of benefits in terms of the UKM products’ sales rate in several rural areas during a period of 10 years from 2008-2018.
section – principle – data – contract – concept
The principle concept of the contract is about the agreement of means of collecting data from Chemical section
Nice, Devina! OK but remember that countable nouns need an article and/or an ‘s’. So you need to think about ‘means’ and ‘section’. With ‘section’ you tell us exactly which section, so that’s ‘definite’. You also tell us which ‘means’, so that’s definite, too!
Finally punctuation – small ‘c’ for ‘chemical’, and don’t forget the full-stop!
Try another? 🙂
Thanks Pak Guru.. so are you trying to say that I should add ‘the’ before ‘means’ and ‘chemical’ ?
That’s right! (Sorry took a while to reply – busy setting up online teaching!)
Procedure – Princilpe – Theory – policy – required
The procedure must be executed correctly and completely.
section – response – authority – assume – area
In response to the article 13 on the section B the authority claim the total area which it is assumed who sent the sentence.
Well done Vicky! Actually when ‘article’ has a number (13) and ‘section’ a letter (B) then these are proper nouns and don’t need ‘the’. Then later I’m not sure what you mean by ‘assume an area’. Maybe you mean: “In response to Article 13 Section B the authority claim the whole area, which is assumed by the person who sent the sentence.” Anyway good job! Try another?😊
estimate – section – create – formula – concept
The concept was to create a formula to estimate the area of a section.
environment – identified – concept – evidence – financial
Evidence shows that some identified environment damages can be solved by good financial management.
Nice! Although there’s a difference between damages (pl countable) and damage (uncountable).. I leave you to investigate, ya? 😉
environment – evidence – formula – economic – distribution
Financial aid distribution from governments is the fastest formula to help people who suffer from the economic crisis, and it is evidence of governments efforts to create a safer environment.
p.s. I don’t think this sentence is grammatically correct…
There’s just an apostrophe missing from the end of ‘governments’ (governments’ efforts), but otherwise the grammar is fine. Nice how you used ‘evidence of’ and ‘efforts to’.
