Hi, I'm Liz Waid bringing you Spotlight's Word of the Day.
Today's word is persuade.
This word comes from the program, "Immunizations Making Peace".
The word persuade is a verb.
It means: to make someone decide to do something
especially by asking, arguing, or giving them reasons why they should do it;
to cause someone to believe something.
Here's persuade in a sentence from this program:
"They persuade each fighting side to stop fighting for a short time."
In the comments below, try using the word persuade in your own sentence.
