This Revision Bite will give you practice in writing Gaelic. In this subsection, we’ll concentrate on writing a postcard.

Postcards

You are abroad on your holidays. Write a postcard to a friend. You should write in sentences.

In your card, you may include:

  • where you are on your holidays

  • what your accommodation is like

  • what you have been doing

  • what the weather is like

  • whether you are enjoying it

  • any other information

You will probably be given some information to get you started, similar to the information given on the card below. You will have to write the rest.

Now here’s the skilful bit. Make sure that you are going to get good marks. A good answer will include:

  • A range of verbs which are correctly used.

  • A range of vocabulary which is correctly used.

  • A range of sentence styles which are correctly structured.

  • A piece of writing which is clear and able to be understood.

You will probably be given some information to get you started, similar to the information given on this card. You will have to write the rest.
