Learning English text in narrative, news item, descriptive, spoof, hortatory, review, and other types with generic structure and language features

A descriptive text is a text that wants you to picture what they are describing.

A novel might want you to imagine the characters and see them in your mind.
A travel book will want you to see the country it is describing.

Descriptive texts usually:

make use of adjectives and adverbs
use comparisons to help picture it - something is like something
employ your five senses - how it feels, smells, looks, sounds and tastes

The morning air was crisp and sharp as Sean walked down the road.
The pavement was slippery and cold beneath his feet like a slimy wet fish.
