I enjoy English Language for GCSE, and I think it’s a good subject. However, the only thing I never look forward to is when the teacher shouts and raises her voice to yell at the people who won’t learn their persuasive language devices. I feel like I’m failing, and I shouldn’t feel like it all because other people won’t listen. All we do most of the time is write PEE (Point Evidence Explain) paragraphs, which I don’t mind at all. Once Summer comes, I’m worried I’m gonna end up forgetting all the language devices and we’ll have to go over it all over again in Year 12. Anything to help me out? I really enjoy GCSE English, and I like my English teacher, but I don’t want to be stuck in this loop.
From the sounds of it, it's not your actual essay writing that's the problem but remembering the persuasive language devices?
I guess the only thing you can really do is find texts, poems, anything, and just look through them and see how many you can pick out. That way you'll get better at actively looking out for them and you could even give yourself a mental checklist so you know what to search for with each extract :-)
