  • hello everyone and welcome to the
  • English teacher's guide to the IGC
  • Cambridge exam first language English
  • and today what we'll do is we'll look at
  • how to achieve perfect marks for the
  • writing question which is question 1 for
  • the extended paper and the final
  • question for the core paper now briefly
  • the extended paper the stretch of the
  • exam which is 40 percent and total
  • grades now so both paper 1 and paper -
  • paper - is to our paper you have two
  • extracts to read so it takes about 10 to
  • 15 minutes to read those but obviously
  • look at the questions first so you know
  • exactly what you're looking for
  • immediately there are free questions to
  • answer for paper - each one will take
  • about half an hour to complete
  • so the empathy response which is this
  • writing task you will be basically with
  • a serene one article with an edge to are
  • you'll be asked to write over a letter a
  • speech or the word interview etc looking
  • at bullet points that they are ask you
  • to focus on second question which will
  • do a video for as well
  • analyzing language so you'll read one of
  • the articles and explore the effect that
  • language has using simples or P
  • paragraphs but again there will be video
  • to show you how to do that and finally
  • another video is a summary question so
  • after reading both texts you to write
  • down in the fewest words possible the
  • details you've been asked to reword in
  • the question okay if you need to look at
  • that again please pause it so you can
  • note anything down let's move on so
  • couple of tasks for you so the writing
  • task for paper 2 is worth 20 marks so
  • firstly I want to ask you whether you
  • know this how to achieve 15 marks for
  • the reading part of this question
  • secondly how do you achieve the full 5
  • marks for writing so although this is it
  • looks like a writing question you're
  • actually 3/4 marks go for your ability
  • to read and then finally how do you
  • planners response pause this very
  • quickly note down what you think the
  • answers are because if you don't know
  • how to do this properly you'll never get
  • perfect marks okay so 15 marks for
  • reading you can see what the exam exam
  • boards marking at the bottom here but
  • across the top so basically get perfect
  • marks for reading you have to use plenty
  • of correct
  • now from the text making sure to put it
  • into your own words you know it's
  • copying and pasting words from the
  • actual text itself you need to almost be
  • like the characters it's a little bit
  • like creative writing it sounds as if
  • you are the character from the actual
  • text itself making sure to do that you
  • explore how both particular details from
  • the text made you as the character think
  • and feel don't make anything up
  • everything has to come from the text
  • because that's where the reading comes
  • from and then make sure you cover all
  • aspects of the question in your response
  • so if there are bullet points you make
  • sure you cover those bullet points now
  • the five marks for writing simple to get
  • perfect marks for writing the same way
  • you get perfect marks for any piece of
  • writing this includes your campus
  • coursework so you need to make sure you
  • always plan your content for any piece
  • and we'll go through that in a moment
  • which task free make sure your piece
  • matches the purpose is it writing to
  • inform entertain and you get the idea
  • make sure that piece matches the genre
  • it has to look exactly like piece you're
  • asking to be written but remember you
  • don't need to use columns or drawer
  • images or as a leaflet followed moving
  • up or anything like that make sure you
  • use a variety of sentence types make
  • sure you use that difference in the
  • Stars particular effects include a
  • variety of sentence starters use a
  • variety of complex punctuation again you
  • know use certain times to exemplify such
  • deliberate meaning exclamation marks or
  • show some kind of sense of anger
  • possibly question mark will show a sense
  • of confusion or deliberate request for
  • information make sure you consider
  • formalities its formal or informal use
  • different links of paragraphs spell
  • words correctly make sure the whole text
  • structure works together make the piece
  • interesting but make it boring clues and
  • finally what you need to make sure you
  • do to get as five marks is show off your
  • ability this is the first time the
  • examiner ever seen that piece of writing
  • from you and I say only evidence they
  • have is how good you are so make sure on
  • a date you show off you jump through all
  • those hoops not just using simple words
  • simple piece of punctuation the
  • exemplified someone's never met you
  • before that you're excellent
  • writing same with football if you simply
  • trap a ball not only if you're going
  • good at football if you did lots of
  • tricks and skills and kick ups etc
  • everyone's going to think you're great
  • works the same for writing but the third
  • size was how to plan so how do we plan
  • well obviously with any question about
  • what the exam is you read the question
  • carefully underlining key parts to make
  • sure you know exactly what being asked
  • to do normally the bullet points work
  • roughly in the order they appear in a
  • text that's a quick tip for you think
  • about the text through how to actually
  • look sorry
  • so if it's a letter speech diary model
  • and like that exactly how that should
  • look like and finally not anything you
  • forget to do in order to achieve perfect
  • marks so you might want to also write
  • that in key vocabulary you're looking to
  • use so for me for instance I sometimes
  • forget to use it for a variety of sensor
  • starters but let's look at a question
  • shall we so this is an example of
  • question one from 2011 paper imagine it
  • you are James right entry in your
  • journal intended to be read by members
  • of your family when you get home in your
  • journal you should explain how you feel
  • in this environment point on your
  • relationship Redmond express your
  • thoughts about the next few days this
  • adventure base your journal what you've
  • read in passage a be careful to use your
  • own words begin your journal entry
  • sometimes I wonder why I'm doing here
  • I'm right between the sides and two
  • sides and there at the bottom is how the
  • marks are divided now you can see I've
  • already underlined key parts the
  • question so I'm exactly what I need to
  • do and you'll notice I've also
  • color-coded the bullet points now it's
  • not a bad idea for you if you have on
  • those pens you can click on two
  • different colors then when we're trying
  • to find the information for each bullet
  • point in the text I can underline it
  • with the color I need that's all part
  • the planning process now let's look at
  • the text but as you can see I've already
  • started to underline the key information
  • so as we read our highlight stop and
  • points and torture that some of the
  • things that we can detect so in this
  • extracts webinar hadn't describes the
  • journey into the jungle by canoe James a
  • poet has been eventually persuaded to
  • accompany
  • so a midday we climb into our dugout
  • canoe and set off up river towards the
  • interior after about 10 miles the fields
  • gave way to well-established secondary
  • forests and then the primeval jungle
  • began to primeval suggest something
  • ancient something old I could also use
  • them forget the blurb across the top to
  • help me with some of my for some things
  • I need to become as character James the
  • river seemed to close in us the 60 meter
  • high tree crowded down the slopes of the
  • hills almost the water's edge and
  • apparently endless chaos of different
  • species of trees of every kind of green
  • under the uniform glare of a tropical
  • Sun parasitic growths sprouted
  • everywhere
  • ferns fanned out from every angle in the
  • branches creepers as vicars legs grip to
  • each other and tangled down to the
  • surface of the water their tips twining
  • down in the current micro river weed so
  • straightaway we get its impression that
  • the jungle and the environment is some
  • inhospitable dangerous looking to attack
  • as pretentious there's a personification
  • here you know the trees and things
  • gripping each other that's what people
  • do so it's almost if the forest is alive
  • is attacking us so as the character I'm
  • going to be potentially worried about
  • everything around me the river itself
  • began to twist and turn to the banks
  • behind us appearing to merge together
  • into one vast impenetrable thicket and
  • printable means you can't get through it
  • shutting us in from behind Tessa's
  • feeling of being trapped at the same
  • time the trees stepped aside a meager
  • pace or two to let the river swirl down
  • ahead the outboard motors set on a
  • wooden frame at the stern of the canoe
  • pushed us past foamy little tributaries
  • islets shingle banks strewn with huge
  • round boulders half hidden coves scooped
  • round by whirlpools so again it's not
  • only that the trees are dangerous
  • there's a sense that the water itself is
  • not helpful to us can cause us harm here
  • the river was clear deep green from the
  • reflection the trees we really were
  • voyaging up River so there is a sense of
  • excitement there is no exclamation mark
  • comes to highlight that so though this
  • is very dangerous I'm starting to think
  • and said that I guess in its enjoyment
  • as well I thought it was on an optical
  • illusion but the canoe was actually
  • climbing up a volume of water great
  • enough to sustain an almost constant
  • angle of ascent between going up even on
  • the stretches of water between the
  • jagged steps of the rapids and jagged
  • steps
  • obviously jagged sharp dangerous Rapids
  • obviously is fast flowing water supports
  • this idea again as a carrot I'm thinking
  • this is dangerous but in some ways also
  • an enjoyable adventure
  • we stopped by part of driftwood to hired
  • a drum of petrol to be retrieved a few
  • days later on a return journey
  • a monster visit reared up on its front
  • legs watch this for a moment with
  • dinosaur eyes again I could have
  • highlighted that it's a sense that the
  • animals are almost like prehistoric
  • beasts again we're worried about
  • dinosaurs as human beings that they
  • might eat us
  • Brimley kites flying low enough for us
  • to hear the rush of the air through the
  • primary feathers of its wings
  • circled overhead watching us its flecked
  • brown betty white in the Sun then the
  • birds soared away
  • mooing a shrill call so again bird
  • dangerous but Scientifics soaring away
  • it's just a sense of beauty as well
  • further up the rapids became more
  • frequent and more turbulent and each one
  • heavy waves of water would crash over
  • and into the boat how died again a sense
  • of danger James sitting opposite me on
  • the boards in the sense of the canoe
  • facing upstream was reading his way
  • through the poems of the 18th century
  • writer Swift a straw boater on his bald
  • head his white shirt buttoned at a neck
  • and at the wrists so we can see I've
  • started to now highlight the next bullet
  • point which soul relationship Reverend
  • but we can see we already get his
  • impression it was we're worried about
  • try and survive he doesn't seem on our
  • way at all so these times are pretty
  • feeble Jones of mutton displeased quite
  • so but James yes rapid 5/8 3/2 green
  • heave strength 6 out of 10 is
  • approaching so I've highlighted that
  • going to suggest that the character that
  • I'm about to be is concerned about the
  • fact he doesn't seem to worry at all
  • with a second or two spare Jones with
  • shades book Marquis placements where
  • sleep it neatly under the edge of his
  • tarpaulin ceiling it shows eyes get
  • drenched open his eyes squeeze the water
  • in his beard with his right hand through
  • his book and carry on reading so
  • basically he doesn't seem to be helping
  • at all he's only seems to be carrying
  • about himself and his book every foreign
  • 50 metres or so
  • Alessa fish eagle would regard us with
  • his yellow eye flying off only as we
  • drew almost level flapping gently ahead
  • of the canoe to the limit of his
  • territory could be looking at the
  • environment there I haven't done so at
  • this particular point James his huge
  • head laid back on a hump of our kit
  • under the tarpaulin was every one of his
  • five minutes snooze it's highlighted
  • again highlights since is lazy and is
  • he's lazy but having one of suggest that
  • this happened numerous times the vein in
  • his right temple was robbing a sure sign
  • his brain was awash with extra dissolved
  • oxygen and some piece of programming
  • vital to the production of a future
  • pilot was in progress
  • James exclamation mark unhappy and I
  • opened not really fussed is he what is
  • it just this if you do see a log
  • floating Napa River let me know
  • crocodiles
  • well not the one that attacks you not up
  • here but I'll book I read so we might
  • see freshwater species the four and a
  • half metre one with the one half metre
  • snouts and all those teeth really Redmon
  • said James raising himself on an elbow
  • looking about you're absurd so my plan
  • the environment in aspic dangerous
  • threatening challenging but interesting
  • you can see if rich bully upon I'm
  • loaded down some brief ideas thoughts
  • about the next few days and seem
  • difficult especially red not really
  • being there but some lucky phrases of
  • course in the punctuation on which to
  • use and there's some of the things I
  • forget to do to proofread and do
  • different sentence starters and this is
  • my place sometimes I wonder why I'm
  • doing here I have yet to decide upon
  • which is worse Redmond or the
  • environmental dangers that lurk around
  • every twist of this inhospitable
  • landscape so you see it's in my own
  • words of being the character I'm sure
  • that when I get home
  • remember this is a written the general
  • intended to be given to people
  • family the fact I'm able to give you
  • this journal to read will be evidence
  • enough that I am Alive
  • however there's precise moment the whole
  • jungle seems to be working against us
  • trees and Stan like giant monsters
  • blocking every path in every direction
  • like large gangs of criminals other
  • plant life that seems to leech off
  • living things except Eris idea Oh some
  • kind of disease making me wonder where
  • we'll ever reach our goal is not only
  • the plants that make our journey almost
  • impossible the very river that guides
  • our paths appear determined to harness
  • every twist of the mighty water appears
  • to hide within some kind of threatening
  • and aggressive object such as whirlpools
  • that can pull us under the water or
  • large boulders which waver since the
  • Gliese end our lives so you can see I'm
  • using the information but in my own
  • words and I need to use as much detail
  • as possible to get those 15 marks and
  • sound up the carrots out all the way
  • through you would think that with all
  • this in purgable danger the last thing
  • which should concern me is my travelling
  • partner Edmund wouldn't you well family
  • because I'm writing to the family so I
  • audience is clear in my mind you are
  • very much wrong he appears of a rather
  • laksa days of which means lazy approach
  • to any form of danger which seems
  • potential death he often only doing
  • enough at the last minute to protect his
  • book and his beard before going back to
  • another one of his many short naps in
  • once sense the trusty placing me is
  • pleasing well a little help every now
  • and again would make me feel a far
  • happier now this isn't in the text so
  • what I'm having to do is to understand
  • how the character thinks and feels and
  • use that information that ability to
  • show I understand how the characters
  • were feel is part of that 15 marks his
  • laziness isn't even the worst part is is
  • helpful bits of information to do
  • nothing but make him seem ridiculous
  • leaving me not only angry but some are
  • worried about what could actually be
  • lurking around the next bend it will be
  • great to have him do more than just
  • sleep read and occasionally scare movies
  • limited lack of knowledge the may of
  • this governed some book by an author who
  • is
  • even beans this place however despite
  • all of this one cannot help but excited
  • like great sense of enter awaits us so
  • now on the third bullet points there's
  • no information really in a text about
  • the next few days we have to use
  • information from a text and anything
  • right well how would this character feel
  • in our next few days the fabulous
  • wildlife which soars over a heads daily
  • is a constant reminder of the beauty
  • that can also be found here furthermore
  • while still has a power to take our
  • large service at any moment its strength
  • and ability to seem to move uphill can
  • only impress whilst I at least very much
  • aware that main dangers lie ahead of us
  • again still up the third bullet point
  • I'm looking forward to discovering new
  • things and facing new challenges
  • even if Reverend is only bothered about
  • his reading I look forward to noting
  • down more about our grand adventure and
  • thoughts at once again being embraced by
  • you my loving family now again now be
  • about silence side and a half you notice
  • I've stretched it in the same order as
  • the bullet points so that's a really
  • good way to help you order your work
  • doing this plenty of detail from the
  • original text 15 marks I say luck on the
  • character that's how I get my 15 marks
  • five months for writing I used lots of
  • complex vocabulary have I used different
  • sentence types have idea and all the
  • thing that needs to to get a and a star
  • yes is the answer so if you do all those
  • things you're guaranteed to get full
  • marks for this particular question in
  • the exam so thank you there's a link to
  • look at the past papers as well but
  • remember revise the methods practiced in
  • exam time and the content that you need
  • is carefully read through the texts okay
  • so thank you good luck for your revision
  • and well done
