Ideas for writing
Ask yourself the following questions to help you get started:

  • What films have you seen recently? Which one was the best?
  • Why did you enjoy it so much?
  • Did it have a good storyline? Did you like the characters? Is the setting marvelous?
  • Would the film appeal to a wide range of people?

Drafting and proofreading your work

You should look at your first draft of the task and decide:

  • Have you answered the question? Is the name of the film included?
  • Is the layout and organisation appropriate?
  • Is the language correct with a good range of structures?
  • Will the reader enjoy reading your work?
  • Will it have a positive effect on the reader?

If the answer is 'no' to any of these questions then you will need to do some more drafting!
