IGCSE First Language English 0500

Read the following extract from the novel The Woman in Black by  Susan Hill and learn how a weather could be described:

" In the end I went back to bed. I read two further chapters

of the Scott novel, though without fully taking in their
meaning, and then switched out my lamp. Spider had
settled again on the rug. It was a little after two o'clock.
It was a long time before I slept.

The first thing I noticed on the following morning was a
change in the weather. As soon as I awoke, a little before
seven, I felt that the air had a dampness in it and that it was
rather colder and, when I looked out of the window, I could
hardly see the division between land and water, water and
sky, all was a uniform grey, with thick cloud lying low over
the marsh and a drizzle. It was not a day calculated to raise
the spirits and I felt unrefreshed and nervous after the
previous night. But Spider trotted down the stairs eagerly
and cheerfully enough and I soon built up the fires again
and stoked the boiler, had a bath and breakfast and began
to feel more like my everyday self. I even went back
upstairs and along the corridor to the door of the locked
room, but there was no strange sound from within, no
sound at all."


Now give your description of the weather you have on the last morning in the comment box below.

  6. The Day Before You Came" was digitally recorded and mixed on 20 August 1982, with the working title of "Den Lidande Fågeln" (The Suffering Bird). Apart from Fältskog's lead vocal and a vocal line of Lyngstad mixed with the instrumental, the only instruments featured on the song were Andersson's synthesizer and drum machine, Ulvaeus' acoustic guitar and a snare drum by Åke Sundqvist.

    Many years after the song was recorded, Michael Tretow, ABBA's longtime sound engineer, recalled Agnetha performing the lead with dimmed lights and said that the mood had become sad and everybody in the studio knew that 'this was the end'. On this rumour, Stephen Emms of The Guardian continues the story by saying "finishing her vocals, our heroine was to remove her headphones and walk solemnly out into the daylight, never to return".[2]

  30. Impact of excessive screen-viewing on young kids; children are three to four times more likely to spend on watching TV or playing games on computer if their parents do same.Parents are have to spend less time on watching screen.If parents will spend less time on watching TV, likely their children use less time.Mostly children use TV because of lack impact of their parents on their children. There are lot of risk of using more time on TV watching, cardiovascular disease increased risk of obesity in children.

  32. Sir:
    The youngster of our country are watching T.V most of their time when they feel they have free so they switch on the T.V.In this modern world i think that the youngsters should watch T.V because to increase their knowledge and now a days i think the news and other thing are on T.V.and if in this modern world,Someone don't watch T.V so he or she can't compare or take step with the world because he don't know WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS WORLD?
    Their are some disadvantage of T.V if someone watch T.V more so his/her eye-site will weak and if some children watching T.V so they will change and some of them going on wrong way

  35. What are the benefits of studying Cambridge IGCSE First Language English?

    The First Language English syllabus will develop students' ability to communicate accurately, appropriately and effectively in speech and writing. Students will be encouraged to use relevant vocabulary, to employ correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, and to display a sense of style and audience. While there is a strong emphasis on reading and writing skills, an optional test or school-based assessment in speaking/listening is available.

    The syllabus will help students to understand and respond appropriately to what they see, hear and experience, and to enjoy the full variety of the English language. In addition, it will complement their other studies by developing general skills such as the ability to analyse, synthesise, make inferences, order facts and present opinions.

    A study of First Language English will promote personal development and an understanding of self and others. The aims of IGCSE English as a First Language are to:

    enable students to communicate accurately, appropriately and effectively in speech and writing;
    enable students to understand and respond appropriately to what they hear, read and experience;
    encourage students to enjoy and appreciate variety of language;
    complement students' other areas of study by developing skills of a more general application (e.g. analysis, synthesis, drawing of inferences);
    promote students' personal development and an understanding of themselves and others.
