Language Features of Procedure Text

In the Procedure Text, we use SIMPLE PRESENT TENSE.
The Simple Present Tense has a pattern like this:

Subject + Verb 1 + Object

Here is the example; I boil a pan of water

Can you see where is the subject, verb 1 and the object from the example?

Yes, here they are;
I as a subject

Boil as the verb 1

A pan of water as the object

Then after you know about the Grammar from Procedure Text, now let's see the Generic Structure and the Language Feature of it. . .

  1. Goal : It is containt the purpose of the text. (e.g : How to make spagheti)
