Intro to Multilingual Media – Abstract

Assignment 1

Nowadays technology had given us the opportunity and the advantage to communicate information about what is going on around the word, and our society in a faster,more  efficiently, and I’ll dare to say a bit more accurate way. However, before technology, news paper where the main source of information.  Whenever you wanted to know which were the lotto numbers for that day, which team won the semi-finals, or just wanted to know how violence was affecting the streets of your neighborhood, you made a cup of coffee turn the pages and lost yourself between the lines written on the news paper.  Still, not all news papers are same.  Some are directed to and specific ethical group, some are written in a more professional matter, or seem to get the reader’s attention by exaggerating the story with in the tittles, Ex: “Mermaid Found in Japan”.  Although, this happens often in some news papers, the intention is the same, to inform the reader about what is going on around our country and the word.
