Cambridge Checkpoint English 76 Put full stops and capital letters in the right places in the passage below. (Where there is nojoining word, a full stop is needed.)About this time I had an experience that taught me that nature is not always kind one day myteacher and I were returning from a long ramble the morning had been fine but it was growingwarm and sultry when at last we turned our faces homeward two or three times we stopped torest under a tree by the wayside our last halt was under a wild cherry tree a short distance fromthe house the shade was welcome and the tree was so easy to climb that with my teacher’sassistance I was able to scramble to a seat in the branches it was so cool up in the tree thatMiss Sullivan proposed that we have our luncheon there I promised to keep still while she wentto the house to fetch it.From The Story of My Life by Helen Keller7The spelling rule is that a long vowel is usually followed by a single consonant;a short vowel by a double consonant.

Cambridge Checkpoint English 7b Scan the passage and highlight or underline the signs that a house may be haunted.People more often claim to have heard ghosts than to have seen them. Slamming doors, movingfurniture and breaking glass are the most common sounds heard in so-called haunted houses,as well as the sound of footsteps, of course. The sound of objects flying around a room andcrashing into things is also reported where a poltergeist is apparently involved. Musical instruments –pianos and violins especially – sometimes play themselves. Of theactual human noises, weeping and screaming are favourites.Ghosts rarely speak, it seems. When a spectral figure actuallyappears in person, it is nearly always wearing periodcostume of a sombre colour, or the long, shapeless,floating white garment which is traditional attire forghosts. They are sometimes accompanied bytransparent domestic animals, in particular dogs,cats and horses. Smells are also often mentionedby those who believe their house has a ghostlypresence. Of these, the scent of flowers, especiallyroses, is the most common for some reason.8
