Reason For Learning
Hi everyone, it is important that you keep up with your English learning over the holiday. This means doing some reading, writing, listening, speaking and vocabulary building every day.
You will have a test in the first week of Term One about tone words. You need to know many different tone words so you can write about persuasive texts.
The tone of a text (piece of writing) is the feeling of the text (eg humorous, serious, authoritative). Try to imagine how the words would sound if the writer was speaking to you. Sometimes the tone changes during a piece of writing.
When you are analysing a persuasive text (piece of writing) you will need to describe the tone or tones that the writer uses to try to persuade the readers.
