Please don’t forget the newspapers

Hi guys,

I know, it’s been a while, but I wanted to pick up again on the newspapers.

For all of you who forgot:

I want you to check english newspapers on regular basis. Not only to improve your English, but also to get the needed insight on today’s politics, what’s happening around the world and how other contries perceive the situation.

You can chose your own, but here are some tips:

http://www.nytimes.com/

http://www.bbc.com/news/

http://www.independent.co.uk/

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/

These are all available for free online, there’s no need to buy anything.

And here’s the deal:

Pick an article you find interesting each week before class, read it carefully, so you can sum up what you’ve read in class!

If you feel insecure, you can look up the older post about the Amazon observation tower.

And please work on your vocabulary. You got the “Words in Context” to work on it on your own time.

Thank you.

See you in class!
