Can watching films help you write better essays?

In this taster session, third-year Spanish and Portuguese student Juliette will explore the presentation of live-in nannies and maids in Latin American films and urban legends. Analyzing the ways in which film clips and texts depict and commodify this domestic labour, she’ll demonstrate how to draw comparison between different sources, build an argument and present your conclusion.

This taster session is for Year 12 students, from UK state schools, who will be applying to university in the next academic year (2021-22). It's ideal for students looking to apply for Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge or other languages courses at highly selective universities. We'll give priority to students from our link areas in Tyne and Wear, Brent, Ealing, Westminster and Peterborough, but we hope to be able to accommodate everyone who applies.
