Please watch the video below to find out what I’d like you to in this plain English re-writing exercise.
In this week’s exercise, I’d like you to redraft a short text taken from an online media source.
Here’s the text:
“Poland may get EUR 12.9 billion less in the eventual new multi-year EU budget compared to the draft budget presented by the European Commission over a year ago, which already foresaw a EUR 14.5 billion decline in funds for Poland vs the 2014-2020 EU budget, unnamed diplomatic sources in Brussels told daily Rzeczpospolita.”

End of week review / my comments:
The aim of this exercise is to make you think about how you can redraft language, yours or others, in a ‘plain English’ way.
