Nineteen worldwide news articles with a more in-depth report on Guatemala's Volcán de Fuego, one of the world's most active volcanoes. For the last six years it has had smaller on-off eruptions. The most recent was different. This explosive volcanic event was Guatemala’s biggest for 100 years. In this issue of Newsademic we describe the different types of volcanoes and explain why the latest Volcán de Fuego eruption was so deadly.

Where appropriate, stories feature relevant background and history.
Our text is written and edited in an easy-to-understand style. The aim
is to encourage students to become more interested in, and more aware
of, international news and current affairs.

Articles featured reflect no political or religious bias. Stories are
reported factually and every attempt is made to feature all sides of
any situation in which opinions differ.

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
