Learning English with the BBC.

Learning English with the BBC is an experience in itself, with so much to offer learners. I thought I would tell you about the “Six Minute English” section, which you find under the heading “features”. The beauty of this is that you can listen to, read and do the interactive exercises online, or download the podcast and print out the script.

Did you know that the BBC also offers a newsletter? I was drawn to this BBC feature ‘what-can-albania-teach-us-about-trust’ and was grateful for two reasons. One a fantastic article, which every Prime Minister/President not to mention ‘migration opponent’ in Europe should be made to read. Secondly, I didn’t know that the BBC offered this service (see BBC description below)

“BBC features newsletter, called “If You Only Read 6 Things This Week”. A hand-picked selection of stories from BBC Future, Earth, Culture, Capital, Travel and Autos, delivered to your inbox every Friday“. (copied from article). Enjoy the stories.
