How can I make my persuasive essay more convincing?
Pick a topic you are passionate about and be sure that you have researched it thoroughly, including any counter-arguments or opposing viewpoints. In order for your persuasive essay to be effective, you will need to address counter arguments and refute them. Know who your audience is and what their beliefs are, so that you can align your reasoning to target this specific audience. Utilize the rhetorical appeals of logos, ethos, and pathos throughout the paper to establish your credibility and hold the attention of your readers. State your opinion clearly and concisely at the beginning of your paper and immediately provide supporting evidence. Use rhetorical questions to keep your audience actively engaged with your writing, and use rhetorical strategies like hyperbole and metaphor to emphasize your argument.
Subject: English as a Second Language
Please conjugate the following sentence using present perfect tense. "I ___ (to live) in California for five years".
The correct answer is "I have lived in California for five years". The present perfect tense is formed by combining subject + have + past participle + object. In this case, "I" is the subject because it is the pronoun that shows who is performing the verb, or action, in the sentence. "To live" is a regular verb, so we find the past participle simply by adding "-ed" to the base form "live". "California" is the object because it is the thing being acted upon, the receiver of the action.
