    My French teacher tells me that when writing an article in the (Edexcel) AS French Writing section, I should start by saying something like "Chers lecteurs, ...". However, last year when I did AS Spanish, we were told to always start an article with a title (it was also written in the Edexcel textbook for AS Spanish) and when I told my French teacher this she said that she's never told any of her students to do that ??
    So my question is: how do other French A Level students start their essays for section C of unit 2? Perhaps there's a different set of rules because they're different languages but I wouldn't think so since I thought that the Spanish and French A Levels have pretty much the same syllabus.
    Thanks!

    All year my teacher has been stressing that we always pay attention to the task- if you look, it says whether you are writing a letter or an article. As far as I know my teacher is on the edexcel board, and she has not stopped stressing that you always put "chers lecteurs" and " au revoir" in an article, and depending on the formality of the letter- vous or tous, "Madame/ Monsieur" or just "cher" and end with "veuillez agreer l'expression de mes sentiments". They don't count in the word count she says as they're structural, so even if you don't know what to believe, just put it in just in case?
