Speaking about the news

Choose a current news story that you are interested in to talk about. You can either listen to the news story or read about it – in English of course!

Once you have chosen the news story take notes on these questions:

  1. Who is the story about?
  2. What happened?
  3. When did it happen?
  4. Where did it happen?
  5. Why did it happen?
  6. How did it happen?

Now use your notes to tell your partner what your news story is about. Once you have finished telling the news discuss what your opinion is on the news story.
