Language Analysis Workbooks
In order to improve your analyse of texts (whether it be of novels or of opinion-based articles), you need a sound analytical vocabulary. Firstly, we will use my Language Analysis Series (3 workbooks) to rapidly expand your analytical vocabulary so that you can write more and insightful polished discussions.
I use these workbooks as a vehicle to rapidly expand your vocabulary and to improve your written expression and to check your sentence structures.
Each week, I would like you to write short paragraph responses on the variety of articles in the workbooks, improving and expanding our responses as your analytical knowledge and vocabulary improve. I will get you started in class, and then please send me at least a paragraph each week.
As your expression improves, you will also notice a difference in all areas of English.
I have a wealth of support material. Its purpose is to give you confidence to use the words/phrases that will earn you better marks in English. The best links for these activities will be:
