Monthly topical news lessons
Topical news items with worksheets for each level for you to use in class. Each worksheet contains vocabulary, speaking and grammar work as well as reading practice.
All the articles are from the Guardian, onestopenglish's principal news partner. As well as using the language exercises which accompany each article, you can exploit these news texts in a number of ways:
- as extra reading, especially for advanced students;
- by asking students to compare the political slant of different news organizations;
- as a way to start projects on the issues covered, etc.
Please note: All news lessons are available on the site for a full year from the date of publication. They are then removed to make way for new, fresh and up-to-date news lessons.
