  7. 7. Find out all you can about … … and be prepared to talk about it next lesson! &Read the excerpt from this book about a prep. (preparatory) school in the UK (a private school, usually single-sex, for children between 8 and 13 years old). The humorous text deals with the difficulties that can arise when idiomatic or figurative expressions are taken literally.
  8. 8. Grammar antics Consider these two sentences: a) Whitaker did not like the woman standing in front of him at the parade. b) Whitaker did not like the woman’s standing in front of him at the parade. Which sentence means: 1) Whitaker did not like the woman who was standing in front of him at the parade. 2) Whitaker did not like the fact that someone was standing in front of him at the parade. From Get it Write  In colloquial usage the object forms (me, them, etc) are very often used instead of possessive forms. Expressions such as If you don’t mind me saying so are widespread; examination candidates should, however, avoid them in their written work. 
  9. 9. Too much importance is attached to exams at school. Do you agree? The traditional method of assessing academic progress has always been for students to take exams. However, like many other people, I feel that too much importance is given to exams and that it is time to change the way we monitor our children’s development at school. Firstly, I think that that the examination system is unfair because sometimes two students with the same ability in a subject get very different exam results. This is because one is much better at taking exams than the other. Apart from this, exam questions often test how much a student has remembered about the things he or she has been taught in the classroom. As a result, students are often encouraged to learn facts by heart, instead of how to use the information and how to think for themselves. Lastly, it seems to me that exams sometimes have a bad effect on teaching, as teachers are usually judged by the exam results of their students. Consequently, they are often more interested in preparing their students for the exams than in making their lessons lively and stimulating. To sum up, in my opinion less importance should be given to exams because they are unfair, because they are often a test of memory and because they can have a negative influence on teaching. Where should the essay be divided into paragraphs?
  10. 10. INTRODUCTION The focus of the essay – linking to the question. The point of view you intend to express. BODY OF THE ESSAY A logical progression of paragraphs, each one developing a central idea. Clear topic sentence for each paragraph. Two or three examples, where appropriate, to back up statements.
