Greetings and happy holidays! Many teachers and students told us they are thrilled with the digital edition of Easy English NEWS. It's still free in December, and we're hoping you'll try it before we have to start charging for it.
How I hate the front page story! It was depressing to research it and keep my eyes and ears tuned to the news. But North Korea and its threats and the U.S.'s counter threats don't seem to disappear. Our older students need to know something of the tensions, background, and locations of the problems. (I'd skip this article for younger students. You be the judge.) And remember: Easy English NEWS does not have reporters on the scene, and can only provide second-hand information. We refrain from judgment as we cannot ascertain the truth, only the structures and vocabulary for talking about an issue.
When it rains, it rains...and rains and rains and rains. And pours. At the time of writing, Irma is reported to be one of the worst Atlantic storms ever. Our sympathies go out to all of our teachers and readers and everyone else in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, the Carolinas and more who have been displaced or otherwise affected by the deluges brought by Harvey and the winds and rains of Irma.
