This exercise raises the students’ awareness of ten similes of the form as …… as …… . A practise exercise follows.
There is also Similes exercise 2 now available.
Similes are perhaps more common than we first think, and sometimes the meaning is a little obscure or culture specific so additional teacher input where appropriate is highly recommended.
This exercise is for pre-intermediate – intermediate level students and may last about 20/30 minutes.
