I would read as many newspaper and magazine articles as possible, this will give you a feel for how an article is supposed to look like.
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.

Five what?

That is your second sentence.

I hope this helps. Good Luck.

There is a great website called BBC Bitesize that helps students. I would recommend using this for language features and techniques.

I don't know if this is the right forum to ask but I'm struggling with some language analysis for English Language.

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?

Hi everyone. I would appreciate it if you could mention some ways to show I'm speaking about the reader's thoughts and feelings without saying "This makes the readers feel...." because we all know this gives no credits whatsoever.
Thanks in advance
