Newspaper English and English Language Teaching at Universities
Author information

1987 Volume 12 Issue 3 Pages 81-86


I have already published two kinds of articles about Newspaper English in this bulletin. Their titles are 'Experimental Research on the Teaching of Current English through the Integration of Newspaper English and Broadcasting English' (1984) and 'A Study of English Language Teaching at Universities through Business English and Newspaper English' (1987). In these articles I looked at the positive learning results boosted through a combination of newspaper English and broadcasting English or business English. Newspaper English is the language read through the English news- papers. The articles in English newspapers range over a wide variety of subjects like politics, economics, education, sports, entertainments and so on. The content of the rticles is up-to-date and lively, and the language used there is actual and living English. In this article I refer to the various kinds of usages and expressions used in news- paper English. I am sure that by learning such kinds of expressions and usages as I showed in this articles, students can make remarkable progress not only in reading but also speaking and writing simple practical English.
