How questions require more detailed explanations and will take you longer than A1. It is still crucial to highlight KEY WORDS in the question and USE THEM IN YOUR ANSWER to prove to yourself and the examiner that you are doing what is asked. 34. Try this sample question: How does the website brochure persuade the reader that a Centre Parcs holiday is good for both parents and children? 10 marks 35. Example of part of an answer. The brochure shows a photo of adults and children horse riding together as well as photos of children and adults doing activities on their own. This persuades readers that Center Parcs holidays are good for both parents and children because it suggests that families can enjoy time together doing activities as a family but can also enjoy a range of activities independently. This would score 2 marks because it states the evidence and explains how the photos are persuasive. You would need to find 4 more examples to score 10 marks. 36. Now practice this question. Sample Question: look at the International Wildlife Adventures brochure. How does the company try to tempt the reader to go on one of its holidays? You should comment on: What the company says about itself What he company says about the holiday Words and phrases used in the text Pictures and layout 10 marks
