To provide students with practical paraphrasing experience of a tour interpretation


A group of tourists visiting Barbados is on a scenic island tour. On route, the bus passes through the west coast of the island in the parish of St. James, near the site of the landing of the British in 1635. The tour guide had previously read the following extract and wishes to paraphrase the facts to the group:

Holetown is one of the larger cities of Barbados, along with the city of Speightstown and the capital city Bridgetown. Holetown is located in the parish of Saint James.Holetown is where the English landed for the first time in Barbados in 1635. This is comemorated by a plaque which erroneously records the date as 1605.

Write another paraphrase version of the interpretation above based on the initial information and then use the internet to research enough information to add another paragraph.
