Will you be having holiday programs this september to teach
these creative writing techniques?
I was wondering about instances where 'chases after' kind of
instances, you mentioned don't have to put after because chase already means run after..do you have more examples on this? Tk u
Yes, during the september holidays, we will have programmes
that will focus on teaching the children how to apply these techniques
so that they will not just 'memorise' good phrases but also
be able to come up with their own 'showing' sentences and
personification, metaphors and similes.
'Chase after' is an example of words that are made redundant
because they are repeating the same information.
1) Black colour
'Black' is already a colour so there is no need to use 'colour'
2) Night time
'Night' is already a time of the day so there is no need to add
'time' after 'night'.
