World News

for Advanced Learners

About This Page:

This page is not intended to serve as a go-to source for all the up-to-date world news, but rather as an effort to use the global news sources as a tool by which to enhance the learner’s vocabulary and language structures and thus advance their knowledge of modern English. With that in mind, we select the news with regard to their length and difficulty level.

We strongly recommend that our students read one or two of these daily and we hope that they will find this page to be a helpful instrument in improving both their grammar and their vocabulary.

We also hope that in this way, they will get into the habit of obtaining the global news from the direct sources rather than translated excerpts offered to them by their local news media.
