Valletta goes Lilliput with new street sign


In one of my classes a few months ago, I used a short article from a local newspaper (The Times of Malta) to help my students:

  • revise vocabulary we had learnt earlier on that week (COMMUTER)
  • guess the meaning of unknown words by looking at the photo which accompanied the text (SLAM, BARRIER)
  • discover an interesting alternative for “small” (LILLIPUT)
  • find another way of drinking (SIP)

This shows just how useful reading in English is. You don’t need to buy books or magazines. Go on-line and find an interesting article. After you’ve done that, share it with other language learners by sending the link in the comments box below.

  2. “Sip” 😊 Thanks!

    For the article below – also from a local newspaper – I think there is an interesting alternative for “species” as well a possible way of “named”.
