CNN student news

October 12, 2013

A few days ago, a very diligent graduate called to ask me about how to improve his performance on TOEIC. He plans to apply for the project of international exchange students next year in NTUST. He presently got 7 hundred something and he aims to score 900. I listed a few websites I know, among which, CNN student news appears to be particulary authentic, instant and learner-friendly. This daily-broadcast video program comes with a transcript, comprehension questions and discussion questions. You can also activate the captioning, which though, is in English and A LOT slower than the narration. In addition, you can also participate in the discussion on its blog. I have downloaded its App and listen to it from time to time. Give it a try and hopefully you can get a satisfying grade on your English proficiency test.

Watch a ten-minute breaking news of the day.

Comment on the news article with other students in the world.
