News and media

When learning or teaching English news are a gold mine. News items give you up to date English. They are short, can be chosen after your fields of interest or purpose. The quickest way I know of to improve your proficiency, without actually going to an English speaking country, is to daily read and listen to news in English.

Using news articles from the British Council will supply some help should you need it.

Some news sites:

CNN 10 (for students)
Newsweek (international edition)
The Local (Europe’s news in English)
The Local Sweden
