Would you like to get some more practice in American English? Voa News has a section of news that can be read and listened to at the same time- the language they use is "Special English". This section is specially designed for people like us, whose native language is NOT English. Here you have the explanation they give:
"On October 19, 1959, the Voice of America broadcast the first Special English program. It was an experiment. The goal was to communicate by radio in clear and simple English with people whose native language was not English. Special English programs quickly became some of the most popular on VOA. They still are. Special English continues to communicate with people who are not fluent in English. Over the years, its role has expanded. It helps people learn American English while they learn about American life and stay informed about world news and developments in science."
