The Times in Plain English

I have just discovered this resource and it is simply GREAT!

I've been trying to read English newspapers for a long time feeling a sense of a frustrating experience! (And I know some English native speakers feel the same, too!).    

Try using ‘The Times in Plain English’.
The Times in Plain English brings you important news from America’s best sources of information. The writing is in clear, readable English.  It’s great for learners of the English language because it avoids:
  • Complex sentences
  • Compound sentences
  • Distractions from the main thought
  • Comparisons
  • Metaphors, similes and analogies
  • Argot, slang and idiomatic words
  • Contractions
  • Adjectives

This is a great reading resource for teachers and advanced learners of English!
