Hi

If you 're here, I probably told you you needed to improve your vocabulary and general level of expression.

 

Here are a few things I would recommend to move into the B2 or C1 level of the CEFR. The aim is to gain authenticity, by using the exact terms that native speakers would use for a given situation. It's not just about not making mistakes.

 

The press:

• UK: (remember what I keep telling you about the specific angle and reputation of these papers)

- the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/

- the Times: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/

- the Daily Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/

 

 

• US:

New York Times : http://www.nytimes.com/

Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/

 

• On paper:

- Specific to learning English as a foreign speaker: http://www.ofup.com/langues/vocable-anglais/p374.htm

- Or cheap subscriptions for lycéens/students:

http://www.ofup.com/langues/newsweek/om34/206.htm

http://www.ofup.com/langues/the-economist/om34/278.htm

http://www.ofup.com/langues/time/om34/280.htm

- General interest:

NME : probably the most famous music magazine

Vanity Fair: an american women's magazine

 

For a list of specialist magazines you can get have a look at this link

 

• For your oral skills (Speaking and comprehension)

CNN student News, then look around the site for the scripts of each daily news bulletin

 

Good luck

 

Y Desdevises
