16-04-2016 12:00

Hello students, we started our work on News in Levels five years ago. There are 260 000 users of News in Levels every months. We get nice messages from you about how much you like our news. We believe that you can learn English with News in Levels. We have three levels. All students of English can read and listen to news now.

We believe that you can have friends and colleagues who are also students of English. They could also use News in Levels. It is possible that they do not know about our services. They do not know that such a website exists. So, we would like to ask you if you can send the link to to all students who can also use News in Levels. You can help us and you can help other students too. You can also share us on Facebook.

What do you think? Can you do it?

If there is anything we can do to improve our work, please write to us.

We wish you a lot of success with learning English. Thank you for your support.

Have a nice day,

News in Levels team

If you read and listen to two articles every day, your reading and listening skills can improve fast. You can learn quickly and after some time you will not have to translate into your own language. You will simply understand. Why should you do this?

When you listen to people in your native language, you do not translate. You simply understand. The same has to be in English. When you learn English, you have to learn the whole sentences in context.

Students, who translate English texts, do exercises and do tests are very good at translating, doing exercises and doing tests, but they have problems with understanding English in real life. In real life, nobody waits for your translation. People usually use simple English when they speak but they use it fast. You have to understand with no translation to your native language. If you translate, you cannot be part of communication because you are thinking about the language too much. These words are maybe hard to read but they are true.

You also have to hear every new word 5 to 10 times if you want to remember it. That’s why we use the same words in one level. If you read and hear the same words again and again, you will understand them and remember them. If you know words from one level, you can go to a higher level and learn new words. It is important to go step by step, and read and listen to words which are used in English often. This is what we do with our news. In our short news, we use words which are used in English often. Level 1 has the 1000 most important words. Level 2 has the 2000 most important words, Level 3 has the 3000 most important words.

So, if you want to understand English fast and learn fast, read two articles or more a day. You can improve your reading and listening quickly when you read easy English news. We will help you learn English fast and understand it. When you use this website every day, you can learn 3000 words which you need for communication with anybody in English.
