Hello, i enjoy reading J. Peel’s posts, though they are rather awe-inspiring for me, an ESL English teacher. I can’t even begin to tell how very baffling the endless acronyms tagging all the posts are, but still I can drop the “awe” and keep the inspiring insights.
One of my forms ( year 11) is venturing into reading a whole novel in English for the first time ever, and it is TK a MB, so I’m sharing this crash course as your pupils might find it helpful.
Let me know if you don’t agree!
Now sit down, and study stylistics and language registers 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IntI62LWSJA
Have a wonderful 2015,
Cheers Anne, I will take a look. First time with TKAM for me too- surprisingly! Looking forward to it. Sorry about the acronymic short hand! I think many of rhem are explained in the posts…
Happy New Year!
