Sometimes there simply aren't enough hours in the day to produce lesson plans and resources based on the state of the environment, the latest film listings or the fortunes of Justin Bieber, which is why we've done the work for you. See below for news articles (PDFs from The Week magazine) plus lesson plans, worksheets and interactive activities. For a list of lessons according to subject matter rather than date, please see news-based lessons by topic.
Please note that these resources are published here by kind permission of our former ELT contributors and that it may occasionally be necessary to remove a resource from the site at their request. Please also note that these resources are published in PDF format only. Any audio, interactive or adaptable materials referenced in the PDFs do not form part of this archive.
