EnglishClub Site of the Month September 2012 ~ Tiny Texts In English
Tiny Texts in English offers free listening and reading materials for English learners based on interesting news stories that may not make the headlines. Each entry includes a short reading with an audio file and glossary. The recordings are provided by an English teacher with a Scottish accent. The “takeaway test” is a short printable quiz with a matching exercise and gap-fill. Some entries also include related videos or links. The site is relatively new, but is growing weekly and is well maintained. Teachers who want to use this resource in class can review Annette’s tips in her 10 Tips for Teachers.
