News in Slow English

Nov 16, 2017

In the first part of our program, we’re going to discuss current events. We will begin with the new European joint defense pact - PESCO. Next, we’ll talk about a new poll in Australia that shows overwhelming support for gay marriage. Then, we’ll have a conversation about the “Me Too” movement in which more than 1.7 million people in 85 countries have shared their experiences of sexual assault, abuse, or harassment. And finally, we’ll talk about a new video campaign in Poland to promote higher birthrates.

- European ministers sign joint defense pact
- Australians vote to legalize same-sex marriage
- As “Me Too” movement gains momentum, questions emerge about its lasting impact
- Poles encouraged to “breed like rabbits” in new video campaign

The second part of our show will be dedicated to American culture and the English language. In the grammar section of our program, we’ll illustrate the use of today’s topic: Pronouns. And we’ll conclude our program with another English expression: “To blaze a trail / To be a trailblazer.”
