Persuasive devices flashcards – free download

I’ve made these flashcards to teach students the persuasive language devices they’ll need when writing articles or letters.

They’ll be used both for my year 11s to help them with Section B of their English Language GCSE exam (AQA), and for students further down the school to get them used using them.

They follow the AFOREST acronym:

F – Facts
O – Opinion
R – Repetition and rhetorical questions
E – Emotive language and exaggeration
