He has a very special teacher. She came on a course with me specially to learn how to make poems with her pupils.

Noah has had a lot to contend with in his young life so his teacher started a poetry group for him.

Timi came from Nigeria, and was shocked by the behaviour of English rain. In fact, he thought it should be arrested.

it's very difficult to speak Finnish in Finland because absolutely everyone speaks English and wants to speak it to you.

Of a particular sort to write a particular sort of analytical essay to pass GCSE. But there is a lot more to Macbeth than that, including the possibility of responding with your own scene or poem.

Also - reading this thread - you do not need context to respond to the witches in Macbeth. People who don't speak English, who come from other cultures and young children all understand the idea of being told your fate by a supernatural force. You need context 1/2

In English there's also special problem with knowledge that can't readily be described because English is made of words. In English we meet rich complex texts and respond to them with more complex patterns of words. Describing what we are doing in more words is always reductive.
