I’ve started my second FOA and I was wondering if anyone knows if we HAVE to focus on one text and analyse it, or if we can choose a general topic and choose multiple examples

Well, for my FOA, I just have one general topic and I examined two texts. I wanted to study Macron's political speeches, so I have two speeches: one about the yellow jackets and the other about the UN. Hope this helps :)

You need to have a focus on some kind of text on your FOA otherwise you want be able to score higher than a 4. On one of my FOAs I talked about what is lost in poetry when it gets translated, so I took an english poem and translated in my language, albanian, and took an albanian poem and translated that into english. And basically that was my text focus

You for sure need to have a specific focus. You can analyze more than one text, but that’s the really important part of the FOA.
