ESPSIG: 'Effective use of news articles in the ESP classroom: the example of Legal English'
An ESPSIG webinar presented by Tamari Dolidze
News articles are real, relevant, current, and interesting and as such, are especially useful in the ESP classroom. This webinar explores the ways of effectively incorporating articles from the news into the ESP learning process as an invaluable resource for teaching intermediate and more advanced students. News articles can be used equally to expand each of the four skills, or can be used to focus more specifically on only one. This workshop will highlight practical ways in which this can be done. A structured approach to teaching news articles will be presented since, as with all lessons, those centred around the news should be carefully planned and have a clear goal.
