After weeks of learning, finally this week we’ll have our first english lesson formative on Wednesday.
From what I have learned today, there is 6 text types, they are:
example: news article
- Recount (fiction or informational)
example: (first-person accounts)
diaries, journals, short stories, novels, memoirs
- Narrative (fiction or informational)
example: short stories, picture books
example: science encyclopedia
example: maps, instruction manuals, experiments
example: restaurant review
In order to understand the text types conventions, we have to know the purpose, structure, language features, and where would you use this Text?
A text can have many purposes, for example:
- Persuasive text
Convincing the reader of the writer’s point of view
- Procedure text
To instruct someone on how to do something
Hopefully, I’ll easily remember and understand the text types convention by reviewing the material at home. I also hope that I will get an excellent score on my first english formative, wish me luck!
