Reading text commentary - New Internationalist Magazine

Extracts from this document...


Reading Text Commentary This reading text has been written for an adult audience for some form of magazine such as the new internationalist (www.newint.org) that is focused on worldwide concerns. This text does have a similarly to the listening text, as this reading text has been written to inform on a political issue however this text attempts to achieve this by a written format.
