Worksheet Overview

When we write to advise, we need to use friendly language that suggests ideas rather than tells people what to do.


For example, saying 'You might...' or 'You can...' sounds better than saying 'You must...' or 'You should...'.

You can also use rhetorical questions such as 'Why not try.....?' Or make statements which remind the reader that they are not alone, such as: 'Some people find it helpful to...' 


As with all writing tasks, remember to use full sentences, divide your work into paragraphs and add as much detail as you can to expand your point and ideas.


Try to spend 45 minutes on this task.
