  • is a piece of writing usually intended for publication in a newspaper, magazine or journal

•  is written for a wide audience, so it is essential to attract and retain the readers’ attention
may include amusing stories, reported speech and descriptions
can be formal or informal, depending on the target audience
should be written in an interesting or entertaining manner

is in a less formal style than a report
An article can

REPORTED SPEECH

REPORTED SPEECH
Three days ago....

MARY: What are you going to do this evening?

JANE: I’m going to the new pub.

MARY: Where is that pub?

JANE: It is near here.

MARY: Do you like it?

JANE: I love it. I went yesterday too. …

MARY: What’s so special about it?

JANE: I’ve met a nice guy

MARY: And?

JANE: And I think I’ll go tomorrow again.


A few days later...


Last Friday, I talked to Jane and I asked her what she was going to do that evening.
She told me that she was going to the new pub. So I asked where that pub was and she said it was near there…
I asked her if she liked it and she told me she loved it and that she had been there the day before too!

Then I asked her what was so special about it and she said she had met a nice guy and that she thought she would go the following day again… and ....she didn’t even invite ME!
