    I have a revision question, that I can't seem to grasp.
    The question is:
    Read the transcript (text A) and the article (text B). Text A is the transcript of a university student who is talking to her friend about starting the final year of her nursing course. Text B is from a speech on education given by the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, in October 2007. Compare how the information, attitudes and feelings are conveyed by the speakers in the two texts?
    I'm struggling on comparingthe texts with each other...
    If anyone could give me any tips or notes on how to answer this question, it would be great!!

    Help, hard to say without seeing*the texts, but basically, i guess you wanna look at what they are trying to say int the speeches*and then work out how they are trying to do it. *Maybe make a list of the similarities and differences...??? *Maybe cimpare grammar, how they are including the audience, the level of*formality...?? *Hope this helps....
