    Hi everyone last week i did a mock Exam and I got 16/30 in order to pass one has to get 19 marks.

    One question i was strugling with was.

    "Explain 2 ways the writer of text... Tries to convince the read that music at work is a good idea."

    I got no marks on this Question,the teacher wrote a note saying "which language features have you identified".

    I did not get a chance to see the teacher, as I study part-time.

    What should've I written?

    Ps: English is my Second language.

    Many thanks

    when people try to convince they use a lot of persuasive language, emotive language, imperatives, facts about the topic, direct appeal ''you're missing out''

    I believe music at work is a good idea for numerous reasons. Firstly, music cheers people which makes the work atmosphere a much happier place. People clearly work better individually and as a team if spirits are high. I believe work efficiency and productivity would increase dramatically because of this.

    Language features could be like:
    -similie
    -Metaphors
    -Personifications
    -Imperative
    -Declarative sentences
    -Facts/opinions
    -Triplets
    -Emphasis
    -Persuasive
    -Structures etc.........

    If you find any of these features, just quote the evidence form the text and say what feature it is. Explain it in depth like saying how it affects the readers.
    Music at work:
    -may energize workers
    -may motivate them
    -may create a positive impact
    -keep them working without getting bored
    etc....
