(
* Snippet = a small, interesting piece of news)


Try to spend at least 5-10 minutes a day, reading something in English. You will soon notice how your vocabulary expands. Reading on a regular basis is one of the best and cheapest ways to improve your English. The proof?  Well, just imagine what your native language would be like if you had never read at school!

TOP TIP: Find books and newspaper articles that interest you. This way you will find it easier to motivate yourself.

Have a look at some of the recent news articles below. These are authentic articles, written for native English speakers, so don't worry if you don't understand everything.  If you find them too long just concentrate on the first paragraph.
