Your next task has to do with news. Luckily for students of English, nowadays there are thousands of websites where you can listen to real English. The one I am presenting today, CNN StudentNews, is especially interesting because it contains real updated news for students. And the good thing is that if there's something you can't understand you can always read the script.
Each one of you will listen to one piece of news for one particular day twice and will comment about it on the following VoiceThread so that the rest of us will also know about it. Record a one-two minute summary of your news and give your personal point of view about it. Use your own words.
