Product Description

June 21 to July 4, 2019. Seventeen worldwide news articles with a more in-depth report about the G20 leaders' summit in the city of Osaka, in Japan. In this issue, we recall the history of the 'Group of Twenty', explain why it has 19 member countries, who or what the 20th is, and outline what happens during these annual two-day summits.

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.

Other reports include:

First rock-eating creature found*

Impromptu summit in Korea

Volcanic eruption from space*

Mosquitoes’ preferred choices*

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.
