Introduction

Holiday Brochure Essay These extracts both share a common theme of persuading the reader to visit. Both informal extracts describe the appeal of who they are representing, Wales and Jersey, and use various techniques to get the reader interested in visiting.

The repetition of "Discover" is used as a persuasive technique to attract the reader to visit and see what jersey is all about. Its graphology is typed in bold and is much bigger than the rest of the text to emphasise its meaning and make sure the reader gets to read it. ...read more.
