Persuasive Language Lesson Plan

Using persuasive language can be a difficult skill for ESL students.  They have need to learn both the vocabulary and how to use it.



Here is a worksheet that can help students to figure out which words are more persuasive than others.

Assignment:  Write a persuasive e-mail to your brother asking him to do something that you know that he doesn't want to do


Sample e-mail:

Dear Sweet  Brother,

I so want to you come with me!  It will be an educational opportunity for you, a chance for you to get out of the office and enjoy life for a change!  Please, think of this as my gift to you for the past 5 years that I forgot to give you birthday presents!  Tell the newspaper that you are going on a fact finding mission with me and that we will write a wonderful travel article for the paper!  We are going to have a wild time!  Just do it for me, pretty please?


With love,

Thea


Now it is your turn!
