Hey guys!

This is a thread I've made strictly for English Lit AND Lang A Level students who are studying the Paris Anthology, The Handmaid's Tale and the poetry anthology (any poet, I'm doing Robert Browning).

If you already know a thread created for English Lit AND Lang could you post the link. Otherwise, just post any questions you might have about the subject and I (or anyone else) will be more than happy to try and help (I am by no means an A student, I probably need more help than most!)

If you are a prospective A Level student who might want to take this at A-Level you can ask questions here as well but keep in mind this is mainly for Year 12 and 13 students who need help for the exam.

Does anyone know of any texts in the Paris anthology that would link to the Gard du Nord text? Ive found analysing it quite difficult as its quite bland feature wise and drastically differs from the other texts ive studied.

Hey! I get what you mean by it being quite bland, but I thought it would be interesting to compare it with the Eurostar advert transcript. This is because they are both based on travel but presented in different ways (their audience, mode, genre and purpose are both different).

How are you finding the Paris anthology sectio? Did you just start it recently with your class?

Thanks! I didn't even think of that.
I find it so boring! I much prefer the poetry anthology I find it hard to compare texts from the Paris anthology although I quite like tranforming the pieces(i prefer the creative parts haha).

Is anyone doing the non literary/literary coursework, if so, does anyone understand what is meant by 'reflect on the approach that was taken' in the spec for the conclusion??

You know for the spoken language texts(for e.g Mike and Sophia) can we still talk about metaphors/pragmatics etc.
