The lessons "for teachers" are reading lessons that contain activities
that incorporate writing, listening and speaking skills.
The topic of each lesson is based upon a general-interest type of newspaper article, and each activity is based around this text source.
An important feature of this site is that it appears to be regularly updated and offers new articles each week on current issues which serves to keep it interactive with world events and therefore relevant to a larger number of students.
