Persuasive Language – Advanced & Proficiency Level Students

The University of New South Wales, Australia, has an excellent Literacy Department which provides invaluable advice on developing writing skills. For those of you who are studying English and are preparing for  exams, have a look at the following PDF document, A guide to understanding persuasive language, provided by the University of New South Wales. This document contains guidance on not only persuasive techniques, identifying tone, and things to avoid, but also, analysing visual texts: a vital tool for speaking skills and tests. Click on the UNSW logo, and prepare to be impressed!

Unfortunately, this link is no longer available, but don’t despair! I have found a well-written, concise guide on Literary Techniques by the BBC which focuses on how to use descriptive language techniques effectively. Click here for the link.
