News - practice understanding the news

Suggested Difficulty (Elementary etc): ____ Advanced
Video or Audio: ____ Audio
Lesson Idea: Hi @Constance_Fang and Team,

(I just sent an email about this this morning, I hadn’t see the suggest a lesson function on your website)
I’d really like to be able to understand the news, but it is too fast, and a lot of formal language.
Most of the really good podcasts (eg BBC, Pheonix) are no longer available.
Maybe something like this:
Introduce the topic and read the news slowly
Vocab and grammar
Read the news a bit faster
Full speed! aaah!

This news suggestion is a very good one. I am surprised it hasn’t produced any comments. I support it!

I’ll submit this to our proposed lesson area. In essence you’re suggesting and Audio only lesson? Our usual approach with Dialogue and Vocabulary wouldn’t really work in this format.
