2 Describe a place that you hate… Describe to the person next to you a place that you hate being. If you say “in English with Miss Simpson” I will be less than impressed. Being stuck on a busy metro Being in a lift

3 Language Unit One Section B: Question 5 “Write an entry for your online blog, describing a place you hate and explain why you dislike it so much.” This is an example question that you could be asked. Today you’re going to have a go at writing a response to this question. Firstly, get an A3 sheet and write your place that you hate in the centre circle.

4 My place that I hate being… The doctor’s waiting room Patients spreading germs everywhere Posters and leaflets about disease Fake and pretentious receptionist Feeling all hot and nervous The thought in my head of having to get a needle Children making noise, playing with toys Harsh, white walls In your next circle I want you to think of the reasons why you hate that place – what little things about that place would you describe and explain in your answer? Fill in your circle in as much detail as possible. The more details you have to write about, the better. Step 1: Details

5 My place that I hate being… The doctor’s waiting room Patients spreading germs everywhere Posters and leaflets about disease Fake and pretentious receptionist Feeling all hot and nervous The thought in my head of having to get a needle Children making noise, playing with toys Harsh, white walls Step 2: Language Choices Power of three: ‘The walls are white, cold and sterile’ Adjectives: ‘The excruciating pain.’ Smell: ‘Her repulsive perfume.’ Sound: ‘Spluttering and coughing filled my ears.’ In your next circle I want you to think about the language techniques you would use in order to describe this place. You don’t have to use all of them – but think about language choices that might fit well with the elements you’ve decided to describe.

6 Now you have some ideas… read the sample answers using the ‘how to do well’ checklist. We are going to have a look at two example answers in order to establish how to write an effective answer before you have a go yourself. Grab the sheet that matches your colour and read and highlight where the answer has effectively used a feature from the checklist.

7 Pair up and compare student A’s answer to student B’s Compare your example answer to the other. Which one is better? Explain in as much detail as you can why you think this. Discuss how you would improve it even further.

8 Now it’s over to you… You have a strict 25 minutes to write, independently and in exam conditions, a response to the question… ‘Write an entry for your online blog, describing a place you hate and explain why you dislike it so much.’ I don’t want to see an unfinished answer – use this time wisely to write a full answer.
