Figurative Language

Hello everybody, long time haven't post in this gloomy blog.
O.K, let's come right to the topic, this time I would like to talk about Figurative Languages.
WHAT IS FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE?
Actually, figurative language is the way you state or write something in a different and unique way to make your words become more interesting.
Some type of figurative language are :
Simile : comparing two different thing, usually connected by using word " as" or "like." For example, "the way he spoke as warm as a cup of coffee".
Metaphor : Methaphor is quite similiar with simile. But, here we state something as if it was something else, usually connected by using word " is, are". For example, "you are my life", "he is a monster".
Hyperbole : Using big exaggeration in saying something. For example, " I catch the ball, I almost die when I knew I did it."
Personification : Giving human character to an object. For example, "The wind whispered me your name."
Alliteration : A repetation, of initial letter, words or group of sound. For example. "she sells sea shells by sea shore."
Onomatopoeia : Imitating sound made by object or natural sound. For example. " crack, boom, pow."

O.k guys, I hope you all get some good impact from this post.
Thanks for visiting my blog and bye. :)

Audio and Video Review ( Bookstore VS Schoolarship )

Hi,
Tonight I'll share about a video titled ' Bookstore Shopping' from esl-lab.com. This video is about son an father's conversation. The son said to his dad that he will buy some stuff from bookstore. In fact, he also bought some gadget like phone and Ipad. His father wondered about how he pay those gadget. And in fact his son has take his credit card to pay those gadget.

The second one is an audio from the same website. This video is about a student who miss his test because of coming late. He lied to the lecture by blaming other things to make the lecture give him another chance. But it's just put him to a worse condition. The lecture failed him for the subject. So, you can learn something from this post " my name ". LOL.
I have done the exercise from esl-lab.com and I got 100 for both of the topic.
If you want to try your score or if you want to see or hear the video and audio, please click here for the video, and here for the audio.
