A comprehension test / response to text for 30 marks. This product is very useful when used in tandem with a study unit on formal and informal English language. The excerpt contains a vivid example of the use of slang in a prison. The test also hones skills in inferring meaning. The comprehension should open up a dialogue on what is meant by 'correct' English usage, how valid this concept is today and the use of slang in different socio-economic contexts.
