News Sites

Hello. A small update to the Newspapers section of the Blog.

Links to Indian newspapers in English suddenly stopped working, so I have updated them.

To follow events in Iran, use the BBC or other British media. But don't forget the American media and, for another perspective, an Iranian newspaper, The Tehran Times, in English. There is also the official Iranian news agency IRNA, whose site was not available when I tried it today at 12:20.

Why am I suggesting these sites? Because the Internet can easily transport you into other countries and cultures, using English as the medium. These sites are a great way of practising your reading in English, and bringing you to another world.

Coming soon: more radio and TV sites.
If you have any suggestions of your own, I'd love to hear them. Post them on the Tag Board or in a Comment.
