CBBC Newsround has been on The Best News/Current Events Websites For English Language Learners for quite awhile. Here is how I describe it there:
This is sort of a version of BBC News designed for younger people. The lay-out, writing, and choice of stories is very inviting. They used to provide audio to a lot of their stories, too, but they seem to have, unfortunately, discontinued that practice.
Thanks to Jason Renshaw’s post today, I learned why they discontinued the practice of having an audio version with their stories.
They now have a separate Accessible Newsreader for much of their content that is attractively designed and provides audio support for the text.
Thanks, Jason, for letting us all know!
