How to: Write a Newspaper Article (B1)

Learn how to write professional looking newspaper articles!

How to provides you with a step-by-step guide in most forms of academic writing. After having learnt the basics you will quickly move on to studying examples and producing your own pieces of writing. You will be guided through each step, helping you to reflect and evaluate your writing skills concerning a certain topic as well as the proficiency of your language skills.

How to requires an experienced English speaking person to give you some feedback on your pieces of writing. While you can theoretically do most of the steps on your own, it is best to reflect on your writing style and your linguistic mistakes with the help of somebody who is competent enough to analyse your piece of writing together with you.

With their clear language, newspaper articles are also a great way to practise your knowledge of tenses, vocabulary as well as style and register. Last but not least you are going to learn how to put all this into action by designing a newspaper article on a blank page.
