Understanding The News
Unlike normal day to day English, understanding the news can be more difficult for non-English speakers because of the terms used.
It is important to understand news terms and the rationale used when preparing news text.
Broadcast and print news quiet often use the present tense, instead of the past tense often used in other aspects of spoken English.
We will help you learn the different phrases and terminologies used in the news getting you used to understanding the news in English. Every session will teach you strategies to familiarise yourself with the types of language used in the news, ultimately making it easy for you to follow current affairs when reading about them or watching them on the television.
Before staring this program, it is vital that we establish your current level of English. You will need to have some command of English language before starting this module.
