Through Jose Picardo’s Box of Tricks I learned today about Euronews news videos. Euronews is available in eight languages. Each video is accompanied by a written transcript directly under it as it is playing. Each of the news segments that I watched this afternoon were relatively short which means the transcripts are also relatively short. The brevity of the transcripts makes reading the transcripts not such a daunting task for struggling readers.
Applications for Education
Euronews could be a good news source for ESL/EFL teachers who would like to include the use of current news stories in their curriculum.
