english language paper 1 question 2 8 marker

The writer has used a simile to suggest how unstable the coach is due to the severe weather conditions. For example the coaches wheels are deceived to be “like a drunken man.” This suggests that the coach is unstable and has been effected from the wind and rain. Through the use of language and a simile in particular, the writer has been able to show the reader how it would feel to be a passenger on the coach, enhancing the description.The writer also used personification to again show the effect of the weather on the coach. “The wheels of the coach creaked and groaned.” This shows that the coach us show to be exhausted of this weather and the effects it has on its exterior. This use of personification emphasises to the reader how impactful this weather was.

Its not bad. Ideally you want to embed the language techniques just before the quote so it would look like... to be through the use of the simile, "like a drunken man". You want to refrain from repeating the word suggests and and the writer used and rather expand with different phrases. Also try not to say this shows the reader because examiners think its boring and they get fed up of that try say something like... this further elucidates ... emotions to the reader. Last part was pretty good.

Question is why are you doing q2 for lang paper 1 when we've already done it?
