News and current affairs to practise English

Dear advanced level English learners,

Today we start sharing various news articles with you in order to incentivise reading English-language newspapers.

Why read the news in English?

Reading the news and keeping up with current affairs in English is a great way to do something interesting that will at the same time, help develop your English.

Keeping up-to-date with world news not only helps keep your mind engaged while you are learning, but it will also give you content to use when making small talk or having conversations in English.

We welcome your comments and we’ll answer any of your questions regarding the content or the grammar used in the articles. Feel free to ask us questions when you don’t understand something.

Enjoy the selection!
