Well the first thing you should do every day is read a newspaper. Find out about all the different UK news sources on The Big Project. You can also read different news sources on the Google News app, which is also available for iPhone.

Here are a few popular UK newspapers: The Guardian, The Independent and The Telegraph. You’ll learn about British and world culture, understand what’s happening in the news, build your vocabulary and just become a much more interesting person all round! Also, you’ll develop those very important critical and analytical reading skills that you need as a student.

Always use a good English to English dictionary when you read. We recommend the Cambridge Learner’s Dictionary as the definitions are easier to understand.
