Article focus

If you want to improve your reading then building a class around an article is a great way to do

this. Here is how article based classes usually work:

Of course, feel free to choose articles that you would like to work with from anywhere on the internet.

However, here are some of my favourite places to find articles:

If you're not sure where to start, start here :

๐Ÿ“Œ You choose an article before our call then we can both read it before our call starts.

๐Ÿ“Œ We can begin our call by discussing any confusing vocabulary or grammar in the article.

๐Ÿ“Œ We discuss any new vocabulary from the article.

๐Ÿ“Œ We move into a conversation around the topic of the article.


Engoo: Daily news

Engoo is my favorite place to go for articles to base classes around. Each article is rated from 1 to 10 depending on how hard the vocabulary and grammar are. They all start off with some useful vocabulary and then finish with discussion questions. If you want to work with articles, definitely start here.
