Do you think texts A and B below are cohesive? If not, why not?
I am applying for a B.Ed. course because I was a teacher in Nigeria and I would like to continue that career in this country. Since I came to England five years ago I have worked as a volunteer in a community school in Camberwell on Saturdays, teaching English to children from the ages of 7 to 16. In Nigeria I studied education with English as my teaching subject. I very much enjoyed my six years teaching upper primary children and gained a great deal of satisfaction when I saw the children respond and understand the things I taught. As well as working in the community school, I help out at my Church, both with the Sunday school and with the Choir. The English part of my degree course covered English language and English literature written by English and African writers. Now I have my own children, whom I teach daily at home.
My work experience in the head office of The Pizza Palace gave me experience of office practice in this country. As part of my work experience I developed a database of regular customers, and I then trained the other staff in how to use it. These other people were very nice. This showed me how IT skills are used practically in business, and helped me develop my interpersonal skills. I enjoyed working in a food-related industry and I learned a range of new skills.
