These articles are spoken in fluent English, and cover current news issues. We post at least one new story every day, they are generally quite short, and they have many interactive questions and answers. Recommended for more advanced learners.


These articles use simpler English and a limited vocabulary. They cover a wide range of general interest topics such as studying in America, science and technology, and articles on global culture. They are usually quite long, and do not have questions.

Good luck with learning English!
