Task 1

The two news articles below are about the same type of crime: joyriding*. Create a short text in which you briefly comment on the differences in language, content and the journalists’ attitudes.

Task 2
Long answer

The following tasks are based on your preparation topic “Social control in English-speaking countries”.

Answer either 2A, 2B, 2C, or 2D

2A
Literary characters often choose to violate social norms or break laws, often for very good reasons.

Create a text in which you compare two such characters and discuss the choices they make. The characters must be from English-language novels, films, plays or short stories you have studied.

Give your text a suitable title.

2B
Create an informative text in which you present some of the standards of behaviour in your future trade or profession and discuss why they are important and how they are enforced. Your text should include:

 

  • a short presentation of the profession you are aiming for

Create a text in which you present the main points in the news article in text 5 and discuss the consequences actions in somebody’s private life can have for their professional life. Refer to at least one other relevant example from English-speaking countries in your text.

Give your text a suitable title.

Sometimes people find a particular type of social control unreasonable or unjust and try to find ways of opposing or changing it.

Create a text in which you present and discuss one or more cases from one or more English-speaking countries where social control has been opposed or is being opposed. Your text should include:

  • a presentation of one or more cases where social control (norms, rules and values) has been or is being opposed
