The Economist is not just one of UK’s, but also one of the world’s, top weekly current affairs magazines. It covers news and politics from all over the world, as well as features on science, technology and arts reviews. This class is your opportunity to discuss either an article chosen for the class, or an article one you have read in that week’s Economist. Whether it’s to debate the issues in the article, to learn more about the background, or to critically examine the article in the light of The Economist’s editorial views, it is a chance to go beyond the article, as well as to practice English and make friends in the process!
Articles will be assigned for the first session. Students will pick articles for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th sessions which they will summarize for the class.
