ONLINE ENGLISH VOCABULARY EXERCISE






ESL Vocabulary Quiz: HOLIDAYS
Ramadan

Welcome to our new collection of exercises designed to help you practice English while learning about holidays. Some of these holidays are observed in all of the English-speaking world, while some are only celebrated in specific countries/regions. People in the English-speaking world come from many different religious faiths, so we're including some holidays from these religions. For each blank space, choose the correct reponse. If both responses are acceptable, choose the one that sounds more natural. Good luck!

1. Ramadan is a very important month for Muslims. It is a time of inner (reflection/refraction) that is (meant/mean) to bring one closer to God.

2. In religious terms, to "fast" means to eat little or (none/no) food. Fasting during Ramadan means abstaining from food completely.

3. By fasting, one learns to develop sympathy and compassion for the less (fortified/fortunate), as well as to (appreciate/approbate) what one has.

4. Ramadan is the ninth (9th) month of the Islamic (calendar/schedule).

5. The daily period of fasting starts at (dawn/down) ( = when the sun rises) and ends when the sun sets.

6. During this period, Muslims must (abstain /absolve) from food, drink, and smoking, among other things.

7. During the last ten days of Ramadan, Muslims try to come closer to God through displays of devotion and good (doings/deeds).

8. The 27th night of Ramadan, (known as the Night of Power) is the most important in terms of prayer. Many devout Muslims spend the (entire/all) night praying.

9. Another way Muslims come closer to God during Ramadan is by reading as much of their (holy/saintly) book, the Qu'ran (Koran) as possible.
