Easy English is a style of writing that has been developed to provide understandable and concise information for people with low English literacy. Many people find it hard to read and understand everyday written information. Easy English is similar to plain language in that it’s concise and easy to understand, but it also follows specific grammatical rules and includes images to support key messages.
Each Easy English document will:
Explain one idea per sentence
Use basic language and grammar
Use subheadings, bullet points and white space to break up text
Use a simple font, layout and design
Select images that are easily understood and add meaning to the text
