The content of NEON is refreshingly original; as an A-Level German student, I find it's content uniquely relevant to my age group which otherwise tends to be ignored by publications such as the Stern magazine itself. From a linguistic point of view, it's uncomplicated use of German provides a stimulating, whilst easy to comprehend read for those who do not have German as a native first language. The expose coverage in particular is an original form of personal reporting, but unlike other topical magazines it manages to convey the extent of situations such as the 2010 Haiti earthquake through personal stories as well as indepth, professional coverage. I find that it is of fairly good value, considering the expense of similar publications in Britain. It's focus upon non-mainstream but highly interesting stories, such as those of the Pakistani police who are on the frontline of the war against Middle Eastern terrorism, is much appreciated. Especially as some journalists tend to focus on highly current and 'popular' events, which can sometimes make journalistic publications really dull to read from week to week.
As I keep on with my studies, and head off to university in September this year, it's highly likely that I will continue to subscribe the NEON.
