This pack was compiled with the over-worked, frazzled and frenzied English teacher in mind, hence the user-friendly, easy-to-photocopy layout. Being able both to comprehend and analyse a text in order to determine its purpose and evaluate its content is an invaluable lifeskill. It is for this reason that the selection of these texts was based on their authenticity. All texts in this pack are taken from the media, from easily accessible newspapers and magazines. They are the types of texts that a learner would encounter in ‘real life’ and — if we’re lucky — read.
While some of the texts may be considered ‘old’ we still believe that they have value and as the PDF is not secured, you are able to cut and paste, and edit, to suit your needs.
