How to Learn, How to Teach English

CNN Student News

Website Review: edition.cnn.com/studentnews

In short: CNN Student News presents the news almost every day in a short video. These are made for teenagers who are native English speakers, but non-native speakers will enjoy them as well. The anchor (news person) speaks quickly and uses some slang and idioms, but students can read the transcript if they need help.

For students: Check out the discussion questions for each story. If you can answer them, then you’ll know that you really understand.

For teachers: Ask your students to follow a topic all semester. At the end of the term, they can present everything they’ve learned.
