It would be so great if someone tells me if these are right:

1.The new model costs twice more than last years model.

2.He felt very strong that he should leave.

please tell me if i need to delete/add some words to achieve correct grammar.
Thank you!!!

For the first sentence, the idea is to convey that the price of the new model is twice that of the last years' models. therefore i think the sentence could have been

1.
The cost of the new model is twice that of the last years' model.

as for no2. i think the sentence construction does not sound good,
it could have been
2.He strongly felt that he should leave

Another alternative for 1 is

1. The new model is twice as expensive as the last year's model

As for 2, yuvly is correct

Good luck !

1. The new models cost twice more than the last year's model.
That's if you want to keep your old sentence.
2. He had a strong urge to leave.

(usage of Aristotelian...) - Suggestions on this paragraph?

The usage of Aristotelian appeal intensifies and adds substance to a writer's material. An author or speaker can effectively persuade his or her audience through three subcategories of Aristotelian appeal: logos, pathos, and ethos. In many movies, characters demonstrate logos, pathos, and ethos when giving speeches to evoke a desired emotion from the audience. Examples of these speeches include ___.

Hi, Katie again)
If you have your whole work, could you post here? I would gladly review it, cos' I don't really enjoy reading tidbits)

In many movies, characters demonstrate logos, pathos, and ethosthe usage of mentioned rhetoric devices when giving speeches

It would be better if you could give examples from other sources :literature, historiy - not only cinematography.
