Marvellous magazines

22

Sometimes when I have a bit of spare time, I go to a newsagent’s to buy a new magazine. I find that reading Italian magazines is an excellent way to improve my language skills: I can choose something that really interests me because there are so many different types of publications.  The articles are often quite short and there are plenty of pictures alongside the text to help me, usually glossy photographs or advertisements.

My favourite kind of magazines are about travel and tourism. I love to browse the different cities and countries to visit and am really interested in the reviews of cafés, restaurants and tourist attractions. Before I visit a new place, I write down a list of places to explore during my time there. Reading a travel magazine gets me really excited about my trip and helps me to make the most of my adventure.

Another kind of publication that I enjoy reading is the fashion magazine. In Italy, the home of high fashion, you can find endless magazines showcasing designer clothes and the season’s must-have items. I don’t really spend a lot of money on expensive brands but I do like to discover what kind of bags, make-up and beauty treatments are popular right now. These kind of magazines are great for improving vocabulary and often contain interviews with celebrities too.

There’s a magazine out there for everyone, with topics including sport, fashion, gossip, science and many more. To get a better feel for the English language, you could even look into publications that are aimed at language learners and contain useful explanations of unfamiliar words. The brilliant thing is that there are also loads of articles to read online: take the LearnEnglish Teens magazine for example!

What's your favourite kind of magazine? Do you read magazines in English or in other languages?

I like teen magazines the most. They always contain some tips about school and how to react in one awkward situation for example. These kind of magazines contain some funny stories too.
I usually read magazines in my mother language, Macedonian, but I love reading articles online in English, too.

That's a really good idea. That way, you can find out more about what is happening in the Gaming world and improve your English at the same time :)

The only problem is, we have no english copies, so I just stick to reading online. But if I do find them, I won't hesitate to buy.

I find it interesting that the article talks about how we can learn some things from places like Italy and images teach you where you can go a little noting what is right through magazines, it's something good and efficient :)

Well, few years ago when I was 10 or 11, I bought teenagers magazin ''OK''. For me it was the best magazine where I can see a lot of modern fashion things and what is new on music stage. Now, when I'm little bit older I can say that I prefer fashion magazines for olders. There I can see what is REALLY in in fashion world. For me, it's important because I really love fashion, and I would study fashion or something for design. I really like it! Also, my passion is football. I love reading football magazines especially when I read something about my favourite club, about football players and their private life.
