Monthly topical news lessons
Monthly news lessons are sourced from The Guardian, onestopenglish's principal news partner, and include topical news items with worksheets for you to use in class. The lessons in this section are available at pre-intermediate/intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced levels.
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.
