GCSE / A-Level English Language Terms Defined and Explained

September 21, 2017 Rahul G

This article contains a document that defines and explains multiple English language terms you'll need to know for your GCSE and A-level exams.

Similes, metaphors, alliteration, imabic pentatmeter, onomatopoeia . . .

Having trouble remembering, identifiying, or knowing how to use these terms?

Well fear not . . . the document below will define, explain, and give examples for the English language terms you'll need to know for your GCSEs and A-levels. Think of it as a cheat sheet and time-saver in learning and digesting such terms.

This document was developed while tutoring my students, so it's been battled tested by them. Suffice it to say that it helped them do well in their GCSE and A-level English langauge and literature exams.

Hope it helps you too!
