Title: SPORTS ESSAY

Lesson number: 143

If you want to sprinkle some stardust on your sports essay, try to include some of the terms below. The sights, the sounds and the smells are just as important in this genre (i.e. type or style of essay) as any other. The main focus should be on demonising your opponents. This adds humour to your story. How did you feel afterwards? Were your opponents too rough? Did you wake up to the cheep-cheep sound of a heart monitor? Add drama to your essay.
