It's easy to misinterpret written messages. Recording a quick voice message instead is safer – and faster – than typing out each letter. Study with your phone out of sight.
Placing your phone in a drawer or a place where you can’t see it can help reduce the anxiety of wanting to check it. Ideal solution for homework time. Send audio notes instead of text messaging.

Read this article about an interesting find. Some parts of sentences have been left out from the text. Your task is to reconstruct the text by filling in the gaps (A-I). 
A) which she believes is a ‘once in a lifetime find’ 
B) where he wrote his play ‘As You Like It’ 
C) which was the only ring he liked 
D) who spends her spare time looking for hidden treasure 
E) who said it was probably a ‘posy ring’ F) who lived in the 17th century 
G) when I took a closer look 
H) when she got a strong signal at the bottom of the grounds 
I) where it is going to be examined



Sue Kilvert, 66, a retired postlady    found a ring that may have belonged to William Shakespeare. Ms Kilvert was searching the fields next to Shakespeare Hall in Warwick with her metal detector    and discovered a small ring with the words on the inside of the band ‘Truth Betrayes Not’. Shakespeare Hall was owned by the famous playwright’s family and it is probably the place    in 1595. Ms Kilvert said: ‘It was tiny so I thought it might be a modern child’s ring but    I could see the words and realised it could be something very valuable.’ Ms Kilvert showed her find to a group of fellow metal detectorists,   . Such gold rings were popular between the 15th and 17th centuries as gifts for lovers. The ring has been sent to a museum in Birmingham    to see if it has a deeper connection with Shakespeare. The 66-year-old lady hopes to keep the ring,    but she will have to give it up if it is declared as a ‘treasure’ under the Treasures Act. In that case, she will have to offer it for sale to a museum at a price set by the Treasure Valuation Committee.
