How to revise GCSE English Language

Is your child struggling to revise for GCSE English Language?

Some people believe it's not possible to revise for English Language GCSE. Afterall, you can either read and write English or you can't. Right?


Watch the How to Revise English Language Masterclass, taught by Mr Salles of YouTube fame to:

  • Find out the examiners’ secret advice on each question.
  • See why you can score many more marks once you progress beyond writing in PEE paragraphs
  • Discover how best to use your time in the exam so that you don't throw away marks
  • Learn why you need to experiment with the order of the questions, and why doing questions in the order they appear might not be the best solution for you
  • 50% of your marks are available for writing. Learn how to make your writing lively, interesting and get the highest grades
  • Most schools teach students to answer the description question. Learn how to structure this to get the top grades
  • Discover how to prepare for the narrative question, so you can stand out from the crowd, and have a real choice in the exam
  • Just like a tennis player can practise their serve, forehand, backhand and lob, you too can practice quick exercises which will transform your ability to get high marks.

 I am currently predicted to get a grade 8 (a*) but my track record for year ten begs to differ. I went from a grade 2 (f) to a grade 6 (b) in four weeks as a result of his instructions. Would deffo recommend.

Can’t recommend strongly enough. My daughter failed her mocks and this book gave her the convenience to walk into the real exams understanding what the examiners where looking for.

Mr Salles' sheer expertise, passion and work ethic is astounding. As a private English tutor, I find his videos informative and inspiring.

Who is hosting the workshop?

That would be me!

My name is Lucy Parsons. At school I developed a study system that earned me five As at A level and a place at Cambridge University. I taught geography in secondary schools for four years and now coach students in exam skills. I am also the author of The Ten Step Guide to Acing Every Exam You Ever Take.


I sat next to my son and listened in, it was really informative and interesting and although Nick is only in Year 10 he said he found it motivating and it has definitely helped him to organise himself so he knows what to focus on and how to go about getting properly started! A big thank you from us!!

My daughter took part in Lucy's October revision planning workshop and found it incredibly useful and really enjoyed interacting with all the others taking part. She started the workshop feeling very overwhelmed by the prospect of revision and finished with a clear vision of how and where to start. Would definitely recommend!

We have done Lucy's revision workshop with my 15 year old son, and it made a big difference to the way he applied himself to revision during half term. Prior to the workshop he had to be nagged to revise, and despite being reminded (!) about making a plan it didn't materialise. After the workshop, which he really engaged with for 2 hours, he has followed the advice, he has a plan and he does revision himself at least part of the time he should. We will definitely be working with Lucy again.

Have questions? The answer might be here...

If I sign up for the masterclass will I be signing up for a recurring subscription to The Extraordinaries Club?

Only if you sign-up for a monthly recurring subscription (£64). If you sign-up for the 31 days limited membership (£75) you will only make one payment. However, if you like the club and choose to upgrade to ongoing membership you can do that on your account page. If you choose not to, then your access to the club will expire after 31 days of membership. During your 31 days of membership you will have all the same benefits as members on recurring subscriptions e.g. the ability to set up five sub-accounts for members of your family, participation in the live coaching calls and access to all the resources inside.

Can I sign-up for The Extraordinaries Club directly?

Yes! You'd be welcome to. This way you'll get access to all the other workshops I'm running through the year and you won't have to worry about signing up, as well as all the modules teaching study skills inside the club. The next two workshops will be a revision planning kickstarter and How to revise English language masterclass. I'm looking for experts for revision masterclasses on physics, chemistry, biology and history for 2019 and I will do one on geography (my subject) at some point too.
