Test Your Reading Skills Exploring Different Types of Written Text
Cut out from newspapers and magazines, or bring to class, examples of the following types of written texts, and ask your learners to identify them – either matching them from a list or using their judgement to decide what kind of text each one is. After they have identified each one, get them to think about what the purpose of each text is. What did the writer of each text wish to communicate and why – and to whom?
