How to Pass GCSE English

In my other life I am a teacher so I thought I would share with you one of my latest videos.  I am obviously not in the same league as the animators that we feature on Kuriositas but I hope that the videos I make (based on PowerPoint presentations) find an audience and allow people to improve their English skills.

This one is for GCSE English which is an exam taken by 16 years olds in the UK, although many adults take it too for one reason or another (usually missed opportunities previously in the life).  This video covers the questions featured in the OCR exam board Information and Ideas exam which is difficult to pass if you don’t know what the examiners are looking for.  I hope this helps a few people get through an exam which the UK government is making a little more difficult each year in the mistaken belief that making it harder will raise standards!
