personification, a style of writing which makes an object come to life as if it were a person. Let me explain. If you haven’t done your homework one night, and it is getting late, you might stare at your school books and feel anger or panic. You could say, “My evil textbooks were staring at me, laughing”. Of course, your books are objects that have no emotions, but as a person, you might attribute feelings to objects, and this is what we call
personification. The next time you write a story, why not use this technique once or twice, to make the text more engaging? Watch the lesson to find out how to use this technique, with plenty of examples.
A bit difficult for me with my intermediate level.
Thank you Benjamin.
Very complicated sometimes. 8 out of 10 is not a bad score.
I didn’t get the last one. The proper answer is “none” just because you didn’t really say in the sentence that the printer managed to finish the jobs, am I right? The machine had only the intention of doing sth, and that’s all, correct?
Thank you very much. I got 9 out of 10.Question 8 is a bite confusing,I chose “bit” but “ignored me” was given as the correct answer. Please I need further explanation.

Hi there I’m so glad to hear and learn from you my fellow academicians. I would like to suggest that the lessons that are there in English I could also present them in chichewa to see how it relates to each other or to make some comparisons.

How do I develop stronger personifications?
I got 9/10
Hi, I enjoyed this lecture immensely.
I wrote quite similar sentences with the words:
-Her shoes were biting her toes as she tried to walk downhill.
-The hoover was roaring as she tried to clean the carpets in the big room.
– The letter hid their biggest secrets.
– The key refused to turn as expected, and they could not walk in the vault.”
Hello, I enjoyed this lecture.
Your lesson sharpened my writing skill. While thanking you, I wish to appreciate your teaching strategy too.
Well explained… personification has so much beauty in itself. ?
