What are the Cloze Sentences?

Cloze sentences can be considered as incomplete sentences in which the words that are responsible for making some meaning out of the sentence are either missing or blocked out/covered up. If a student gets a cloze sentence from someone, they are usually expected to get meaning out of the sentence by determining the missing word. Students generally do that by using the help of any clue related to the context of the sentence. Cloze sentences are ideal in helping students grab the gist of the language and expand their comprehension level to understand the importance of particular words. The main use of cloze sentences is to engage the reader in learning the syntax and semantics of a language. Those find processing any language difficult; cloze sentences are especially important for them. Cloze sentences are also helpful in increasing your critical thinking abilities regarding a language.
