Several issues prevent many students from taking an interest in

current affairs: number of news outlets, presentation, article

selection, and language are all examples.

As "the news" is perceived by many younger people to be adult

territory, it’s easy for them to think it irrelevant.

These easy-to-read articles are also popular with teachers who

instruct ESL / EAL / ELL / EFL students
