The Times in Plain English is about “clear writing.” Though not specifically built for English learners, it makes an effort to make news easier to understand. This means that English beginners can get their daily dose of news without having to pick up their dictionary once every five words.
The site takes articles from various publications, including The New York Times, and rewrites them in short, concise sentences using common vocabulary. Topics include health, education, law, immigration, money and work. You can find a link to the source at the end of each article, for when you want a reading challenge.
The site is easy to navigate and you can also subscribe to a newsletter to receive new articles straight to your inbox.
