As an English as a Second Language learner, there are a couple of things that you need to keep in mind when you read the newspaper.
1. Not everything in a Newspaper is grammatically correct
When you read a quote in a newspaper chances are that what’s in the quote probably isn’t grammatically correct. Writers use made up words sometimes to emphasize their point.
2. Newspapers use many expressions
Expressions are hard to understand when you are new to a language, so be sure to write expressions down and check them on the internet to find out what exactly they mean. You can use these expressions to showcase your skills in the PSC exams.
3. Newspapers use fancy words
Fancy words in a newspaper can make the message unclear, so check definitions of words that you don’t know. It will help you increase your vocabulary and clarify the message. You can use the new words you have learned in an oral conversation to help remember the new word.
