I HATE English Language A LevelWatch
Writing analytical essays can be difficult in the beginning. To start off, learn the language levels by memorising them (using the same techniques you would have for your GCSEs), and apply them to any text that you can find. Analysis is not necessary at this stage; just do some basic feature spotting. If you'd like, I can give you a glossary containing definitions for these key terms that might help you with this part.
When you do get to your analysis, consider GAP-C (the text's genre, audience, purpose and context). You should mainly focus on the text subject, text producer and the text receiver. I think it's wise to do one paragraph on each of these and have context entwined in every one of them. Each paragraph should contain two points. An introduction giving a few basic details about the text would also be fine (e.g. the text producer, the discourse, the intended audience, the time the text has been written etc.). If you want to give your essay more conceptual depth, you can include your opinions on the text producer's audience positioning (which you’ll be taught later in the course).
