    Yes. FOR EXAMPLE: So far, this semester I have learned to use similes, metaphors, and idioms. It is a really generic example, but with your own knowledge you can make an excellent one.

    Sorry if you did not do well. Maybe you should get tutoring from offline. I can only provide as much help as I can from online.
