  • And one more comment: the text mentions "490 BC".
    A note with the following info would have been very useful in my opinion.

    Why was BC and AD changed to BCE and CE?
    The simplest reason for using BCE/CE as opposed to AD/BC is to avoid reference to Christianity and, in particular, to avoid naming Christ as Lord (BC/AD: Before Christ/In the year of our Lord). Wikipedia, Anno Domini article: ... Common Era notation is used in many schools and academic settings

  • Hello,
    my students and I are enjoying these news lessons, especially at the elementary level. It would be fantastic to also have some audio (with various accents) to improve listening skills.

  • Been using the levels above elementary for years.
    Always needed shorter texts with exercises for our beginners.
    Immigrants with little or no English are also pouring in and tailored materials for them would be very welcomed.

  • More of these elementary news lessons, please.
    It is so hard to find suitable extra reading for older students at level A1/A2.
