Do you read English newspapers to improve your English skills?
If you asked any English teacher, what they think is the best ‘authentic’ reading material for you to improve your English, almost all of them would say a newspaper.
I would have to agree with them. English newspapers are great!
The main reason for this is because newspapers are much more current than textbooks. Textbooks can become outdated rather quickly - the reading material they contain can soon seem old fashioned and boring to the reader.
However, newspapers contain up to date news and stories. Plus, you can read a different one every day!
A great way to learn English vocabulary!
I know how valuable newspapers are myself, when I was living in Spain and studying Spanish, I would read a Spanish newspaper most mornings while having my coffee before my classes. I learned lots of things by reading the newspaper, such as; new vocabulary, phrases, and common expressions.
Even better... I could speak about some of the current news stories with my speaking partner!
Reading newspapers on a regular basis will help you to improve your reading writing and speaking in English
