S3.3.3 Use metaphor in conversation

Hi and welcome to Unit 1 Tier 3 Activity 3. Please follow the button below for the next part of the activity.

This activity involves using metaphor to describe situations and feelings.

Using metaphor in conversation is useful to describe something in an interesting way. Where you could say ‘a big dog’ a metaphor may be more exciting ‘a mountain of fangs and claws’. This is part of storytelling that is used in music and also in personal conversation. We will use metaphor from the song in conversation as an example.
