A; do you often buy magazines?
B: I buy a computer magazine every month. It keeps me up-to date with all the latest developments.
A; why don’t you find the information on the internet instead?
B: sometimes it takes too long to find the exact information you are looking for. Besides, I like to read a magazine in a coffee bar sometimes.
A: do you have an online edition of that magazine?
B: yes, they do. But you can only access all the articles if you have a subsCRIption.
A; do you have a subsCRIption?
B; yes, I do. The magazine arrives by post at the beginning of each month. Do you every buy magazines?
A: I only buy them if they look particularly interesting. I don’t buy any regularly.
A: I see you have bought the latest co[y of “beauty and fashion”. Are there any interesting articles in it?
B; there’s an interesting interview with a top fashion designer about the latest fashions. I enjoyed reading her thought. The “which?” section is very interesting this month. They tested facial cleaners. The article recommends “all clear” for effectiveness and price.
A: I like to take the tests that they print in this magazine.
B: which tests do you mean?
A: you know. Tests like ”how jealous are you?” and “are you a fashion victim?”
B: oh, I see. I like to do those tests, too, but I don’t take them serciously.
course not, but sometimes the results make you think about yourself and what you do. According to the jealousy test, I’m quite a jealous type of person. Perhaps I need to control my jealousy.
B; you’re right. It’s sometimes hard to tell which pages are advertisement and which ones are articles.
