    right guys so im really worried heres what i did
    q1) bullet point 1:
    - welcoming staff - met me at the airport and made an effort to provide me with a comfortable stay
    - exactly like the website description - tranquil, great views etc
    - impressed with the scenery etc
    -cant really remember my point
    bullet point 2:
    -husband had a bad attitude to the hotel and was rude to staff (complained about the market and thing
    -made the staff change their plans because they were dull
    -acted irresponsibly and hurt himself - injury disturbed the atmosphere of the holiday
    bullet point 3;
    -continue writing and enjoying the surroundings (she had a note pad and it said she was a talented writer?)
    -explore the town/highlights of the tour
    -write a good review of the hotel

    question 2 - focused my points arounf the idea of a 'mirage' thats only seen by those who search for it for paragraph 4 and talked about the connotations of sunlight and talked about the word 'entranced' and how it captivated the reader

    paragraph 6 - wrote about 'a rainbow of produce' because rainbows have a connotation of bringing fortune and are rare etc aand discussed the contrasting quotes like tatty trinkets etc

    question 3 i probably did all the bulllet points wrong and wrote similar ones and that

    i really wanted an A but it seems like i blew it judging by the comments

    If you got a quote that was wrong, they would mark the other one so that's good! We've always been taught todo 5 for each

    [QUOTE=CaSama9;64553061][Please be sure to suggest any other points]

    Question One

    What were her first impressions of the hotel and the staff?

    . Al was generous as he waited in the airport for the guests to arrive
    . The Gardners discussion was nice
    . Al seemed to care about her neck pain
    . Hotels dining room was good
    . The landscape and artwork

    What was her husbands attitude and behaviour like? And what were her feelings towards it?

    . Threw a tantrum at market at her
    . Child like immature/irresponsible
    . Pressured Al into putting him in group
    . Rubble on top of the hill- rude
    . Refused to go to the animal sanctuary

    What were her plans

    . To collect him from hospital
    . To persuade him not to file a complaint
    . To go to the airport by Friday to go home
    . Spend remaining days writing notebook
    . Spend remaining days with bees and seeing how she can help
    . Explore the history and area of the place
    . Leave a good reputation after her husband, before she leaves[/QUOTE
    Omg I don't think i mentioned nearly enough of the points especially on bullet point 1 and 2.
