My first attempt at Week 4’s quiz I did pretty terrible if I do say so myself. A mere 5/10, however, after going back and reading our prescribed text English for journalists on how to report for speech and reviewing the feedback given, I got 9/10, one careless mistake on my part stopped me from getting 10/10, so on my third attempt I finally got 100%. I was a bit shocked though because what I thought I’d learnt in high school and what was actually in the quiz turned out to be completely different. Nevertheless, I got there in the end.
