New Internationalist: Global Issues for Learners of English

May 22nd, 2009 by Dave · No Comments

The New Internationalist has a collection of global issues articles written specifically for learners of English. They have articles on globalization, the environment, human rights and war. They haven’t updated the articles for several years, but the topics are still very relevant.

One example that I like is a series of 5 stories told by child laborers. They are powerful, and simply told. I would certainly consider bringing them into a class activity on globalization or consumerism.
