Vocabulary on the news
« on: April 29, 2015, 06:35:05 PM »
A great way to help the students learn new vocabulary is through listening to/reading the news. The problem, though, is that the language that you often hear on the news is not so suitable for students with levels of proficiency lower than advanced. There are some resources that fix this problem:

'Breaking News English' and 'News in Levels' offer news in simplified language. The content is taken from popular news, but language is simplified into different levels of difficulty for learners. This is a great tool to take advantage of because things that are on the news cover a very wide range of topics--and they are usually intended for a general audience. With the problem of the level of difficulty solved, you can easily find articles that your students will find interesting AND easy to understand!
