Here's part of an exercise from Cambridge IELTS book 12 (test 5, passage 2). The exercise is quite easy, but it contains some good 'keywords'.
Collecting as a hobby
Many collectors collect to develop their social life, attending meetings of a group of collectors and exchanging information on items. This is a variant on joining a bridge club or gym, and similarly brings them into contact with like-minded people.
Another motive for collecting is the desire to find something special, or a particular example of a collected item, such as a rare early recording by a particular singer. Some may spend their whole lives in a hunt for this. Psychologically, this can give a purpose to a life that otherwise feels aimless.
Complete each sentence below with ONE word from the passage.
- Collectors’ clubs provide opportunities to share ………. .
- Collectors’ clubs offer ………. with people who have similar interests.
- Collecting sometimes involves a life-long ………. for a special item.
- Searching for something particular may prevent people from feeling their life is completely ………. .
