Australian Voices Esl Essay Examples

You will be answering one of two questions in Module A: Australian Voices or Australian Visions.

This module relates to the themes or ideas in your text and whose voices or visions we are presented with. This includes the narrator, the characters and the composer. Who are these people, and why and how are their voices or visions distinctly Australian?

It is a language module, so you must focus on how language is used to convey these voices or visions.

Module B

You will be answering one of two questions in Module B: Living and Working in the Community or Academic English

This paper requires no specific text for study. Both electives require you to demonstrate understanding of various textual forms, their layout and structures. You may get stimulus material that you have to use in your response but remember you will also have to add your own knowledge.

Paper 3: Listening Paper

In preparation for this paper you need to revise how people use their voice when speaking. You also need to think of the purpose of the text, the audience and how they react to the text.

  • Revise all language techniques and make sure you explain their effect on the audience.
  • Read questions very carefully and make sure you support your answers with quotations from the text wherever possible.
