Our group has been successful in communicating about our research project over the summer and this augurs well for the coming semester. Collectively we bring good organisation, co-operation, corpus knowledge and analytical and research skills. Concerns that have been highlighted are choosing the right topic, working more independently and arranging a regular meeting time to suit all members. We are interested to see whether the other subjects studied by the group’s joint honour students can be incorporated into our research. We all feel confident that our experience of group work in Year one, will ensure our success in this project.
