News in Slow English

Oct 5, 2017

In the first part of our program, we’re going to discuss current events. We will begin with the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history which took place in Las Vegas on Sunday night, leaving 59 dead and more than 500 injured. Next, we’ll discuss the constitutional crisis in Spain following the Catalonian independence referendum. Then, we’ll have a conversation about the government of Saudi Arabia’s decision to lift the ban on women drivers. And finally, we’ll talk about an Italian woman who decided to marry herself, following a new trend gaining popularity: sologamy or self-marriage.

  • Deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history leaves 59 dead in Las Vegas

  • Saudi Arabia to allow women to drive
  • Italian woman marries herself, saying “each of us must first of all love ourselves”

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: Units of quantity - many, much, few, a lot, plenty, every, and whole. And we’ll conclude our program with another English expression.
