How are expository texts different from narrative texts and personal recounts?

- Narrative text's main purpose it to capture and gain hold of the readers attention, but it can be used to teach or inform. 

- Expository text main purpose to explain a point to the reader.

- Personal recounts are written in the first person point of view and are real life stories.

EXTRA: Descriptive text can be used in all forms of writing to create a vivid expresion of a person, place, object or event. For example it can be used to describe and place in the world and why it is special.
