First, using what you learnt from last week's exercises, have a go at writing an essay describing this graph . Now have a look at this model essay describing the same graph (please don't read the model before you write your answer - you're cheating no-one but yourself :-) ).
Compare your answer with the model
Did your answer describe, compare, interpret and explain all the key features?
Are all key differences mentioned and accounted for?
Did your answer contain a clear, summarising introduction and conclusion? Were ideas within and between paragraphs connected with a variety of linking devices?
Was it written in formal, academic English using a range of cohesive devices to avoid repetition?
Having studied the differences between your essay and the model. Now have a go at this task and email it to me .

Well done to the anoynmous '42' (presumably a Hitch Hiker's Guide reference) who was the winner of last week's kahoot. As you submitted your answers anonymously, I can't send you the prize of an all-inclusive luxury holiday in the Bahamas, so I've deceided to take it myself, many thanks.

Essential Information

In order to pass AP2 you must do the following three things:
• Turn up: In order to pass you must attend every session. If you cannot do so, please ensure you download and read the materials and collect any notes from another student. If you miss three sessions and cannot produce a doctor’s note or other documented evidence (e.g. a signed note from your tutor if you have had to attend a lab session), you will not be eligible for a zápočet.
• Do the homework: submit your homework every week . The dealdine for all the assignments is Thursday May 7th
• Pass the test: On the week beginning 4th May there will be a test. This will consist of grammar and vocabulary exercises (e.g. fill in the gaps) and also an essay. The pass mark is 60% and you will have one chance to retake it in May or June (or later if you choose). If you fail the second time, you will have to retake the course.
