The news is a great source of information

People all over the world like the news. It helps us to be aware of the situation around, to keep up with a time, to know about significant changes in the world’s arena. Nowadays the news is everywhere. You can read them in the newspapers, watch on TV, listen to from the radio, and read on the Internet. It becomes a way of passive communication. The journalists, correspondents, and paparazzi do their best to provide us with the pieces of news constantly. Some people like the politician news, others prefer to read or watch about the celebrities, the others are looking for the news about the latest achievements in the technology, science, etc. You can find as much interesting news as you want, because the world is big, and many things happen in every moment.

The news and learning English

As English is considered as an international language, a huge part of the world’s news are in English. The good point about learning English via news is that English used there differs from the language of an academic essay writing or thesis. Here it is simple and understandable. The reason for that is that the audience is variegated and every piece of news has to be read and understood. One more advantage in learning English through the news is that you do not have to look for the trusted one. Your main purpose is to master or improve your language skills, so it is not so big deal if you listen to or read something fake.

How to learn English through the news

It is undeniable that the news is a great source of the words that are used everywhere. However, if your goal is to expand your vocabulary in order to make your paper writing more eloquent, you have to follow several recommendations. First, when you listen to or read a piece of news, you have to try to find in there the answers to five questions. Who was involved? What happened? Where did it happen? When did it happen? How did it happen? If you focus on those questions, you will understand more and you will catch up new words. Secondly, when you face unfamiliar words, make a note or put the video on pause, and find out what do these words mean. You can also try to understand the meaning from the context, pictures, plot, etc.

Another opportunity for improving your English is to learn how to ask the questions and how to answer them. On the one hand, you ask the questions mentioned above and look for the answers. It is a good practice, as many journalists use those questions every time they investigate something or interview someone. On the opposite, many items of news include dialog, indirect speech, rhetorical questions, and many narratives. Read or listen to them carefully, make some notes about interesting phrases, phrasal verbs, idioms. Thus, you can improve your reading comprehension as well as better your writing paper skills.

Finally, by reading or watching the news you widen your worldview, discover new ideas, make your opinion, and so on. As a rule, writers from writingbee service do the same to improve their essay writing skills. The more information from all over the world you know, the more thoughts you have, the more convincing your opinions become. Thus, you can write an essay easily without running out of ideas that can play a vital role when you are having your exam.
