It’s not enough simply to be able to spot and identify language features and techniques. Telling your examiner that the writer has used a metaphor or a simile is only the first step! In this course, we will revise some of the features and techniques that writers use and learn some steps you can take to analyse them fully. Course includes Multimedia, Downloadable presentation, student workbook and answers.
Topics covered in this short course include:
- Word classes
- Figurative techniques
- Auditory techniques
- What “feature spotting is”
- How to avoid it and write better analyses of language features
