Your home learning task follows our lesson on Wednesday 13 February on how people are perceived because if their accent and dialect. The task is this: write the script for a one minute talk or conversation spoken by the ‘person’ you were given in the lesson, e.g. the yummy mummy, the Oxford graduate, teenaged chav, etc. You should write the script as accurately as possible, showing the features, foibles and idiosyncrasies of the accent and dialect of your persona so that you can then make an audio recording of your speech/conversation.
The deadline for this task is Thursday 28 February. Please bring the script with you; do not email it to me for printing out.
