Reading News


Reading Newspaper can help us to improve our reading ability, learn vocabulary, understand newspaper writing style and let us know what is happening in the world.

A newspaper article consists of a headline, a leading sentence and content.

·         Headline: Simple tenses, idiomatic, flashy vocabulary, no use of function words.

·         Leading sentence: Use the present perfect tense to give a general overview.

·         Article content: Proper tense usage, including a change from present perfect to past tense to give details about who, why, what, how, where and when something happened.

Look at some examples of headlines and leading sentences here
