Mini Madmen

Mini Mad Men and Women Ever get an advertisement stuck in your head? What makes them so sticky? And what’s their purpose? They want to make us buy something! Ad writers use many strategies to get us to buy a product. Three of the most commonly used are: Repetition, Bandwagon and Endorsement. Repetition: repeating a claim or jingle over and over again Bandwagon: showing us everyone is buying/doing it Endorsement: having a celebrity or professional say they use a product Your job is to choose something you love and create an advertisement for it. You can either act it out or create a poster, but you must use one of the three strategies above. to type

Tips

- As with any L2 development, it’s necessary to enunciation and articulate more. - Speak slowly rather than quickly. Clarity is impressive unintelligible speed isn’t. - Work on adverb placement. Awkwardly placed adverbs make listeners say “what?”
