Current affairs.

Okay, as an additional interest or diversion.  We’re going to introduce some postings on current affairs – this can be about cultural, political and social events of the current time.  Basically, the news.  It might include news of the day or unusual news from around the world.  Using ‘current affairs’ can help in building up vocabulary for students wishing to improve upon their English as well as improving reading skills and general knowledge.

Initially, we are going to concentrate on Britain.  Then we’ll expand.  If you want to suggest any news to discuss, please feel free to comment.

So………..what news shall we start with?

What we’ll try is links to the newspaper or article that it comes from, instead of re-printing the story here again.

Topical at the moment especially for some friends of mine, is the fact that some parts of the UK have been subjected to a hose pipe ban because of a drought.  But the weather has changed:
