Persuasive Writing Audioboo

We are studying the language of persuasive writing in class. We practised using language that links our reasons for and against an idea. We used words such as "however" and "conversely" and phrases such as "On the other hand".
Can you think of other words we could use?

  1. Spinning chairs are wonderful for comfort and height, then again many children are diatracted by them moving around and changing them instead of concentrating. Home schooling would be fabulous if your mum or dad are teachers and you actually listened to them and sat down for lessons, on the other hand they couldn't go to work to get extra money for the fuel and food and may have other small children to look after! It would be amazing to have the canteen open everyday, especially if only healthy snacks were sold, nonetheless you would be asking to spend more money there which your family may not be able to afford. I could comment on each subject on the other hand it is getting too long and i am running out of time!! Keep up the diverse thinking! Cheers Mrs Bellesini :)
