Persuasive communication is an essential skill in our world today, and probably has always been throughout history. Some of the most famous Greek and Roman thinkers spent lots of time practicing the art of convincing people to think a certain way. The first modern essay writers changed how we think about democracy, freedom, education, public health and lots of other important issues. Essay writers have even started revolutions! Being able to present a convincing argument will help you convince someone to hire you, change someone’s mind, get you a better deal on a new car or inspire people to help you come up a new ideas about how to do something.
WRITING TIP: Use Transition Words!!!
- Transition words or phrases help us move from one paragraph to the next one without disrupting the flow of our writing or speaking. They also help us use a variety of words so our writing and speaking sounds more convincing.
