Thanks for the reply. I was thinking there would be more words like 'interlocutor' that are commonly used in EngLang essays. But I guess not!
Right, right - I see what you mean now. Interlocutor
is a good one, but I'll have a think and get back to you (I tried thinking just then but I'm too distracted by the cricket hahaha).
What resources are available to practice discourse analysis and short answer questions? There are practice exams as well as the green 'exam guide', but are they truly enough? I was wondering also if it's a good use of time to resubmit essays after correction from the teacher, striving for something perfect.
Yeah! I absolutely love this method; I think it's really, really useful.
Put it this way: I'd rather submit an essay, get feedback, improve it, submit it again, get feedback, improve it, and submit it for a third time, than write three new essays (I hope that sentence made sense). I just think you learn so much more by actively addressing your mistakes, and it gives you great insight into what a really, really good piece of work looks like. And the more you do that, the more natural it becomes to produce that quality of work the first time around.
