Literary Devices

The Literature teacher, Pato Chujman, asked us to play Literary Devices games on her blog, to choose one of them and to look for a YouTube video about the Literary Devices.

Click here to see the Game.

Here is the video I chose:

I chose this video because it was more entertaining than others and that kept you paying attention to it. It gave good examples using movie scenes and that made it more interesting. The man on the video explained very good many Literary Devices and the video was very complete. The video was friendly and you can learn many Literary Devices by watching it.
