  In EFL language learning environments, if the students' English level isn't that much high, using authentic materials such as magazines, newspapers, and books could bring the failure of learning activities. Students get frustrated with the complex structure and unheard-of expressions. Of course, we can try to find the authentic materials which are written in easy English. However, sometimes it could be useful for both students and teachers to choose modified materials in that we can provide students with comprehensible inputs, saving the trouble and time for finding proper learning materials. In particular, issues such as Globalization, Human Rights, Environments, and War could be easily understood and learned, if we choose these kinds of materials. This website provide modified reading materials and related activities for learners about serious issues.
