We had an article writing workshop in the second session of class today. One of the things mentioned was the importance of not using the same word many times in a text. Just take a look at some examples below. The topic of the article was the main differences between a child’s life 50 years ago and a child’s life now.
- at the present time => these days / today / nowadays
- children => boys and girls / youngsters / young people
- alone, without adults => by themselves / on their own
- games => pastimes
Remember, variety is the spice of life!
