Make your writing more varied

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.

  1. at the present time => these days / today / nowadays
  2. children => boys and girls / youngsters / young people
  3. alone, without adults => by themselves / on their own
  4. games => pastimes

Remember, variety is the spice of life!
