Breaking News English is an excellent site, and was included in The Best News/Current Events Websites For English Language Learners — 2007 (I’ll be making a complete update of that list soon).

Sean Banville, that site’s creator, also has another good site called Famous People Lessons. It has lessons, including audio support for the text, covering over 150….famous people.

I’ve added it to my website under ESL Hand-Outs and Lesson Plans.
