  • Hi there,
    I just wanna say overall you guys have done a fairly good job by providing the news lessons. However, it would be much better if the articles chosen could be more interesting without losing their educational value. Furthermore, I'm happy that each article attaches great importance to vocabulary building, which is good considering the need to develop a wide vocabulary. But I would really love to see some activities that reflect the current teaching methodology, more communicative, more focused on inference and critical thinking than simply fact-checking. I am really looking forward to seeing improvements in these respects.

  • These stories are not relevant to our readers everyday lives. They lose interest in articles about Sumo wrestlers or mammals. There needs to be more mainstream articles and business articles. I have been disappointed for a while and coming back from the summer break, see little improvement.

  • Hello Kevoqui,

    Thank you very much for your comment. We are very sorry you are unhappy with the subject matter of the articles we choose. Please can you tell us which topics you believe would be of interest to your students? We will then keep these in mind when we go about making further choices.

    In terms of business articles, we do have a range of business news lessons that can be found here http://www.onestopenglish.com/business/business-spotlight . We add to these regularly.

    Best wishes,

  • How about a Guardian article on the way Netflix has changed the way we watch television?

  • Thank you for that. I will keep my fingers crossed...today's article about the Bluetooth treasure is the type of article that would be useful for my History students. And the bottom line is that you do a wonderful job, so thanks again.

  • Thanks mirasuna, we're really pleased you find the news lessons useful.

    And thanks also sos.anglais.noumea.

    I'm afraid we can only keep the news lessons on the site for a year due to our agreement with the Guardian.

    We'll make a note of your request for 'English for Historians' content and put it in our wishlist. We can't promise we'll develop this content but the more requests (from different teachers and institutions) for a type of content we get, the more likely we're to do it.

    I suspect this is too low-level and young for your learners but just in case this is where our CLIL History materials live http://www.onestopenglish.com/clil/secondary/history/

  • I agree. I teach where the main language spoken is French and they are wonderful for use with General English, and 'English for Cpmputer Scientists' students.
    Unfortunately there are hardly any that I can use with my 'English for Historians' students. I would like to go further back than April 2017 to look for relevant articles, but am unable to do so. Any advice?
