'The writer uses descriptive language such as 'paradise' to show how beautiful the valley is. The word 'paradise' suggests that after walking for so long in the frozen snow, Parrado and Canessa have stumbled upon a place which feels like heaven.

Now, discuss a similar example in another example and repeat the 'comment' process.
Do not write about:
Select a word/phrase...
'Garden of Eden'
select language - comment (analyse the effect on the audience) - compare
band 1: no explanation of effects - 'limited'
band 2: if explanation is generic - 'generalised effect'
band 3: explanation is contextualised - 'clear, relevant'
band 4: explanation is 'perceptive'

Do write about...

personal language - 1st, 2nd, 3rd person
