Reading

The British newspaper The Guardian has a number of weekly features to help you practice your reading skills. These articles are useful because they are not too long so you can easily read them when you have some free time. And (we think) they are really interesting, too. Try some of the following and hopefully you'll find a weekly feature you like.

1 A Moment That Changed Me

People write about a significant moment in their lives.

2 Experience

People share their unique experiences.

3 The Long Read

Really interesting, but be warned. They. are. long. :)
