    Hey :)
    Thanks so much for this awesome site!
    I was wondering if you could create a page for Distinctive Voices as well? I’m studying The Life and Crimes of Harry Lavender.
    Also, I was wondering if you could write more for Standard English. I’ve noticed you’ve put up past exam questions for Advanced in the Area of Study. Would these questions also be related to Standard?
    Thanks so much! :)

      No problem! The exam questions for Belonging (Area of Study) are for both Advanced and Standard as you do the same paper. I also have exam questions for Standard Module A, B and C – which are posted up. TT
