Scanning Practice: Cape Town Safari

Average: 3.9 (22 votes)

Our Cape Town English school is very popular with students who love nature. When they come to study, many of them decide to experience a safari adventure! One of the closest safaris to our school is called "Aquila". For today's lesson you need to visit aquilasafari.com and find the correct answers to these six questions. You will have to look at more than one page on the site.

Because you are searching for specific information, you should scan for the particular key words you need to answer the questions. When we scan we only look for the words that will help us answer questions. Scanning is an important technique to practice if you are preparing to take an English test like IELTS or TOEFL. Move your eyes quickly over each page to find the key words or phrases that are relevant to the question.

Read through these questions, think about the key-words you will need to scan for, then visit Aquila's site. When you have finished, use the comments area to let us know how long it took you to find all the information.
