We read a text and ten had to fill in an online form.
First we had to figure out what the authors purpose was. To do this you had to think about why the author wrote this. You choose from persuade, inform and entertain. An easy way to remember this is P.I.E. The text we read was inform.
Then we had to decide what words were used in the text. To do this you have to decide if it's a a formal text or not. If it is then it will be precise words. If it's not it will use slang. The text we read was neither so it was an everyday text which uses high frequency words.
