What do students say about Easy English NEWS?

What do teachers say about Easy English NEWS?

...The best material I have found for my adult students. There is such a variety of helpful and interesting information and the word help is very useful. The citizenship information is excellent particularly for those who will be here permanently. The Teacher's Guide is very helpful to me. When the school won't pay for it, I pay for it myself.
-- Sue Spector, ESOL Teacher, Project LEARN, Akron, OH

It has become the backbone of my program for Newcomer Students who are between 17 and 21 years of age. They love it. I love what it teaches them. All are engaged and interested in the articles.  --Amy Wilson, Teacher, Newcomer program. Utica City School District. Utica, NY.

  We’ve been subscribing many years. We prefer EEN to other ESL newspapers!  It’s packed with good info. Students enjoy it!  --Shea Hortman, ESL Coordinator/Instructor. York County Literacy Council. York, PA 17403.

 This is just a great little paper. I have shared with speech and social studies and special ed classes--material is easy to understand and both age-and topic- specific (and appropriate).  --Barbara Wood, ESL teacher. Chestnut Hill MS. Liverpool, NY.

EEN is an excellent paper!

You do an excellent job of presenting a variety of interesting and timely articles!  ---I have been distributing your paper to students for about 10 years.

I teach a free adult ESL program at a library- the newspapers are very useful because we can read different articles each night without worrying if a student was there the night before or not (whereas other ESL materials are more like ongoing stories).

Easy English NEWS is a very useful tool in teaching complex concepts and ideas to adult learners. You don't "talk down" to students and you cover adult interest topics that are vital to an educated citizenry. It's useful to me because it adds vitality to the curriculum and because I can adapt it to the level of a wide range of adult learners. Keep up the good work.

I like many features of Easy English NEWS. One example was the article in January on the origin of the names of the days of the week and months of the year. I like Idiom Corner and the questions that use the idioms immediately in context. Actually, there is nothing I don't like about the newspaper because you have made it very versatile to use.
