This series of exercises reminds learners of all the similes that we use in everyday conversation, and we often forget that they are similes: slippery as an eel, proud as Punch etc. The use of these expressions shows that we know and understand English well. The worksheet also revises the structure of the simile and gives learners practice in explaining the impact of various similes. Suggested answers are included.
Most suitable for Grades 7 – 9
