All about figurative language

Figurative language is when writers use various techniques to make their writing interesting, often by using comparisons to other things. We often use figurative language ourselves without even realising it. This course explores the ways we use language to spice up our writing and speaking. You may not have heard of some of these technical figurative language terms even if you have used them. This course is long, and quite a brain-twister, especially the last few modules – so remember to read the explanations and questions carefully! We hope you will enjoy challenging your brain with this course! (Course ends end June 2018, certificates sent out in first week of July.)
