GCSE - English language features help Watch
Bullet points is good in an article but not all the way through. These should only be used as an example to a point that you have made. For example:
The neighbours cat has not been nurtured, I know this because:
. He sprays in our garden.
. He roams further than my cats.
. He has a deep meow.
Always keep to the point and add quotes. Quotes are important Jenny (32) from Romsdale said "I was shock at how fast he ran, I have never seen anything like it."
Get your reader feeling something:
Use emotive language, either make them laugh or make them cry, you could make them feel angry, anything as long as you make them feel.
Use as many language features as possible, Alliteration is a good one, it is short and snappy and keeps the reader interested: Two words close together that start with the same consonant. "Short and Snappy."
Grip your reader from the very beginning, do not lose them in your second sentence. Articles are often described as starting in the middle of the story rather than the beginning:
Fire at House in Derbyshire killed Five.
That is your second sentence.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.

The first sentence is "At the Exeter Police Court yesterday" and I was just wondering if "yesterday" is a noun or adverb in this sentence?
The next is the sentence "It was completely empty but for some reason I misjudged the amount I needed to turn and just drove into it". Is this a complex sentence?
Hi All, I have a question. I am currently in the process of sitting Functional Skills Level 2 English. I am okay with language features, spelling and punctuation, but I am no good at conveying meanings, for some reason or another, I tend to get tongue-tied when trying to explain something. It is like I cannot see the woods for the trees. Can someone please explain to me how to convey a meaning?
Thanks in advance
