News in English

Trying to learn English by watching news in English is sometimes frustrating for those who are still at the beginning levels. The pronunciation of words read by newscasters is not clear, fast and most often full of new terminologies. For beginning English learners, watching, reading or listening to news is not what we recommend. But if you are on the intermediate to advance levels, reading news in English is what we highly recommend. This might be difficult for the first time but the more we watch English news, the better and the faster will be our comprehension about English.
There are not many news websites that provide English news learning materials for beginning levels students. There are two famous websites, i.e. BBC Learning English and VOA Special English programs which you can visit by typing their names in search engine, for example, Google or Yahoo.

Bahasa Inggris Seni
Belajar bahasa Inggris dapat dilakukan melalui apresiasi seni. Seni adalah sebuah bidang yang memiliki banyak cabang. Kebanyakan orang suka seni visual dan seni pentas. Dalam seni visual, kita dapat menikmati lukisan dan gambar-gambar indah karya seniman klasik maupun modern. Demikian pula kita dapat membaca kisah hidup mereka untuk mengenal lebih jauh tentang bagaimana mereka mulai belajar melukis atau menggambar sampai mereka bisa menguasai teknik-teknik mereka.
