ENG 5 – NA16, SA16A

Hope you are not too puzzled and frustrated by your experiences in writing your letters. Only some months ago your writing was praised; now I seem dissatisfied, saying that your writing isn’t quite “there” yet, saying that the writing is “lacking something.”
You haven’t changed–your writing is still mechanically sound, your descriptions are accurate, you’re saying smart things. But I am still not happy. It is not just a matter of higher standards: Often, what I am asking of you is not just something better, but something different.
So, today, we’re going to practise some more writing:
– kunskapskrav-engelska-5-100-poang-kurskod-engeng05-1

To show the next step:
-first(ly)/second(ly), to begin/start with
-in the first/second place
-first and foremost/first and most importantly
-another, then, after, next, afterwards, third(ly)
-finally, ultimately, lastly, last but not least
