  • When I was teaching English to refugees and asylum-seekers in London I found they were avidly interested in British media coverage of news in their own countries and this provided a motive for studying newspapers. I devoted a whole lesson to ‘headlinese’ to help students understand the way in which newspaper headlines condense English in a systematic but often not transparent way.

  • Thank you for this article! So far I have used only advertisements in my lessons and my students were really interested as they worked with authentic texts. Your article has inspired me to work with other types too, for instance, I have never thought about using obituaries or notices of birth, marriages and deaths! Thank you! I am going to browse through a few newspapers to get some stuff 🙂
