Learn real English from real news with tasks created by real teachers


Why is ‘real and authentic’ so important?

Language learning experts agree that using real and authentic content is essential for students to learn and assimilate language. Authentic material is rich in vocabulary and expressions and importantly, it’s the language that native speakers use.

  • It reflects the kind of situations that you will experience in an English-speaking environment
  • It motivates you to communicate with all speakers of English because it makes communication ‘real’
  • It builds your confidence to manage in real-life situations
  • It helps you acquire more meaningful language

Every student from Elementary to Advanced can learn from genuine English-speaking news. It’s a satisfying achievement to interact with English in a real way!

Authentic news from professional journalists from across the world


  • Topics include technology, sports, health, business, the weather, entertainment and fun!
  • With wide range of articles from around the globe and with famous people speaking in English.
