    It seems ..to have thought......... (THINK) today not to provide children with a decent education. [...]. Being unable to read can be intensely embarrassing and can make someone feel like a complete ...........failure...... (FAIL). Someone who can't read is often ....understandably......... (UNDERSTAND) afraid of certain situations. The problem can seem ...be solved........ (SOLVE). However, given the right teacher, a lot of hard work and a reasonable amount of time, anyone can learn.

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    The two I have coloured red are fine. The other two are not.

    You need a single word in each gap. In both the first and the the fourth gap, you need an adjective with a prefix showing negation (such as un/im/in/ir/etc).

    ps. I see that emsr2d2 beat me to it.

    I'm afraid not. Clues to the right answers:

    I find much modern poetry unreadable - too dull or too pretentious for me to enjoy reading.
    My handwriting is illegible - it's so messy that you can't read it.

    Words with the suffix -able (-ible) usually mean that what precedes the suffix cannot be done. Sometimes, as in unreadable, we use the English word; sometimes, as in illegible, we use the Latin word.
