Writing BBC English : an outstanding resource for non-fiction and media study



I’m not even sure how I stumbled across this site, but I know I will be back. This vast resource will be of great interest to those with aspirations towards Journalism, but there is material here of benefit to a wide range of students. This is certainly one for every English teacher to bookmark.


The Skills section could be of interest to KS3/4/5 students and beyond and includes The English Course with advice on  spelling and punctuation.


There is also an excellent section on ‘Writing and wordswhich includes advice on troublesome words and champions the cause of clarity.


Here is not the place to go in to the issue of whether it is part of the BBC’s remit to be creating sites like this: let’s just be thankful they have.
