Several issues prevent many students from taking an interest in

current affairs: number of news outlets, presentation, article

selection, and language are all examples.

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
