I see the sea! He rode along the road. Fir trees and fur coats. I ate eight biscuits. Our hour has come. Shake hands with the sheikh. The guerrilla killed the gorilla.

I had a lot of fun writing these homophone sentences. I hope your students enjoy the worksheet too.

NB. In a few cases they are only homophones in British English.

This downloadable printable is best suited for at Advanced (C1) and Upper-intermediate (B2) level. It is valuable for teaching Homonyms (two words with the same pronunciation - homophones and homographs) in English. You will find the answers at the end of the worksheet.
