					Spoken Language Study Homework: Due first English lesson after the summer holidays!

Read the transcript on the following page and then answer the essay question below.

‘Explore how Jonathan Ross and Alan Sugar communicate during the interview on the
Jonathan Ross show.’

You must write no fewer than 4 paragraphs and make sure you cover the following bullet points in
each one:

    A main quotation
    Explore the reasons why the speaker may have said this (maybe try to name speech features
     as you explain your ideas)
    Explore the effects on the person being spoken to (thoughts, feelings in response to what is
     said to them – you may include another quotation at this stage)
    Explain how the public might react to the speaker and listener
    Consider how the context (the situation) of the talk impact how people speak and respond.

    Top Tips!

    Choose quotations to explore in a chronological order

    If you can’t name a speech feature, as you explain, don’t let it stop you from writing about it.
