12.  Reading Comprehension

  • Holiday Lessons SThis is a fun way to work on reading comprehension and spark discussions about culture!  Some of these dates aren’t appropriate (like National Condom Day), but there are some great lesson plans that can be used, too.  Dates for holidays that change annually may not be updated, so be sure to double-check!

  • Breaking News English  This can be an exciting way to learn about current events while practicing English.  It's a good resource for more advanced students.  Change the level for each story (between 0 and 6) to meet your student's needs!  Be sure to check for topic appropriateness!  For example, reading, “Hong Kong protests ‘extremely dangerous,’ says leader” is definitely not appropriate for our students in China as it could be dangerous for them to be caught reading anti-government materials.
