Mid Term Revision – It’s Here….

I have attached the PPs I have used to teach Paper 1.

I’ve also attached a very in depth grammar guide – don’t try and memorise it all, but do use it to look up features you may feel unsure about! Look around online for other terminology lists – the AQA glossary is useful, but barely scratches the surface!

This blog is FANTASTIC! I highly recommend it to help you begin finding your own ways to answer these questions:

YR13 it might be useful to start reminding yourselves what you actually did last year!! Those skills are absolutely paramount in the success of your responses in A2 – it is not a separate course.

Accent/Dialect Data

Hi All,

Attached is the data we will be working with next week. It would be great if you could begin looking at it and come back with some ideas.

Data – Accent:Dialect

Also, here is the link for where the data comes from. It is a great resource and explains a lot of the wider issues and concepts surrounding accents/dialects.

Enjoy – it is interesting when you start to get your head around it – promise!!
