Syn­onym Swap

Choo­se a topic or theme to write about. Some ideas may in­clu­de: a hobby or in­te­rest, a fa­vou­ri­te place to visit, a me­mo­ra­ble ex­pe­ri­ence, or a cur­rent event.
Write about the topic for a few mi­nu­tes, using words that come to mind na­tu­ral­ly. Don't worry about using syn­onyms at this stage.
Re­view your wri­ting and high­light any words that you feel are too re­pe­ti­ti­ve or could be re­placed with a syn­onym.
Using a the­sau­rus, look up syn­onyms for the high­ligh­ted words and sel­ect a few that you think would work well in the con­text.
Re­wri­te your wri­ting, re­pla­cing the ori­gi­nal words with the cho­sen syn­onyms.
Re­view your work and eva­lu­a­te how the use of syn­onyms has im­pac­ted the cla­ri­ty, flow and im­pact of your wri­ting.


Topic: A fa­vou­ri­te place to visit - the beach.

Ori­gi­nal wri­ting:

I love going to the beach. The beach is so beau­ti­ful. The beach is a great place to relax and have fun. I al­ways have a good time at the beach.

Syn­onym swaps:

I adore vi­si­ting the se­a­si­de. The coast is in­credi­b­ly stun­ning. The se­a­si­de is an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­ti­on to un­wind and enjoy yours­elf. I in­va­ri­a­b­ly have a sple­ndid time by the ocean.

Eva­lu­a­ti­on: The use of syn­onyms has added va­rie­ty and depth to the wri­ting, ma­king it more en­ga­ging and in­te­resting to read. The vo­ca­bu­la­ry has also been ex­pan­ded, which is a key com­po­nent of im­pro­ving the va­rie­ty in wri­ting and spe­a­king skills.
