Please could you tell me what the question was for the essay you had to do and what you had to do for it?

we had to do a rant.

It was sort of like a 'don't get me started on' controlled assessment i did earlier this year, but speaking.

I got 15/15 for it, and the marks weren't hard to score i think

I did this but it was different to what Hannah described. We had to watch two people at hairdressers and then we had to write an essay the question was explore how the hair stylist(s) use language as part of her/their occupation and consider how effectively they communicate with their client. I really enjoyed that assessment I thought it was incredibly interesting.

If you need any help I've just finished the GCSE so I'm always happy to help :)

We could either do a study of the way we talk with different people (which is what i did) or a study of the way a group of people talk! For the first question which most people did- we had to do 3 recordings of us talking with differnet people... Mum, sibling, friends, teacher etc and then write out the transcript. Then we had to do an essay analysing the way we spoke. I hope this makes sense, Good luck :)

Yeah I think Georgia's way is what we could have done as well! Like our teacher suggested going to a market and studying the way people speak there :)

we had to read a transcript of martin luther king's "I have a dream" speech and write about the different techniques he used and what they effect they had on the audience. I got a A* for that.
