Introduction

Unit 1- Presenting information. Report I have collected two different documents from three different organisations for my assignment. In this assignment, I have to describe, compare and evaluate the documents. The documents, which I have collected, are: The Terms and Conditions and Current accounts information from three different banks, which are, Woolwich, Barclays and Natwest. First of all, I am going to describe the documents in order to see the similarities and differences that they all have in common. The similarities are that all three banks have presented the information in a form of a booklet, which has made it easier to read the contents. The layouts of the booklets for the terms and conditions are plain in colour. Woolwich and Barclays do not have a logo to represent their companies, in contrast with Natwest, who have a distinctive logo for their company so that whenever we see it, we know it is theirs. ...read more.

Conclusion

* They all have subtitles to present their information, which makes it easier to read and understand. The differences are that Barclays used borders and shading as a device to improve the layout of the brochure. Natwest and Woolwich made use of tables but they altered the border by making them not appear in the booklets. Presenting the information: The companies used high Standard English to write the information. This is because the targeted audience are people of a higher age group, and the fact that they are dealing with thousands of people; they have to make sure that the information presented is formal. This is the reason to why they used a Standard writing style. The drawback to this is that the language used can be to a quite advanced level for certain people. Therefore, some people may not fully understand what the booklet is all about. Deepa Balkee ...read more.
