The influence of newspaper headlines

A lot of people say that it doesn´t matter what newspaper you read: the news is the news.  I would say: wake up and smell the coffee!

So, with this in mind, take a look at these newspaper headlines  from British newspapers.

Boy, 4, died alone in Hackney flat two weeks after his mother’s death

This has to be one of the most raw and painful news stories that I have read in a long time.  How can this happen?

The Guardian newspaper runs the story: ”Coroner calls for changes in how schools treat cases of absent children following tragic death of Chadrack Mulo. A four-year-old boy, who was unable to call for help or feed himself, starved to death two weeks after his mother collapsed and died suddenly in the flat they shared, a coroner has said. Chadrack Mulo was found clinging to his mother’s body about two days after his own death.”

A Norwegian journalist wants you!

A Norwegian journalist who works for a national newspaper has contacted Inglés Malaga to ask if she could interview some clients for an article she is writing about learning languages. She is flying into Málaga next week so if you are interested in speaking to her please let me know and I’ll put you in contact with her.

Come on, step out of your comfort zone and do it. This is an amazing opportunity to practice your English, express your opinions about the importance of learning languages and perhaps see you name in print! Furthermore, I’m sure you’ll get to know some interesting things about Norway.
