Word of the Day- November 20, 2018

excerpt

(noun) short part taken from a book, movie, speech etc.

Sentence– The excerpt from the book “Robinson Crusoe” which is given in our textbook Marigold, does not clarify who the mysterious footprint belonged to, so I ended up reading the whole book.

Questions:

  • Have you found out any such excerpts in your books?
  • What do you think is the use of excerpts?

One use I can think of is that it gives the reader an idea of what the book is about. That is why some people read the summary at the back of the book and an excerpt from the book before purchasing it.

This reminds me, holidays are a great time to catch up on reading. There is no better way to learn a language. And frankly, it is simply fun!

For those of you who don’t like reading, maybe you haven’t found the kind of book you wish to read or don’t use the 5 strategies of good readers.

    Robinson Crusoe and Around the world in 80 days are both excerpts.
    Excerpts help the person become curios over a book.

    Ma’am Supriya told me to read a Hindi story everyday and discuss the excerpt of it in the class for improving my Hindi vocabulary.
    Thanks ma’am
