The easy to read International Newspaper

All Feedback



I am a home educator. I'm incorporating Newsademic into my son's current affairs for teenagers curriculum. I was so impressed with it have recommended it to 2 home ed groups in Australia and to my sisters children's private school.

My children really enjoyed reading the sample newspapers for children, which I downloaded last week, so I am optimistic that this subscription will help to improve their knowledge of citizenship current events. I think this is such a great idea and we are looking forward to our first easy to read newspaper articles.

I was searching the web for interesting news articles for teenagers and found Newsademic. I now use it with my students all the time and I must say that my knowledge of current affairs is improving all the time! Particularly appealing are the quirky easy to read newspaper articles that appear - things you don't see in mainstream newspapers.

Thank you for sorting everything out and I have happily received my complimentary copy and first Newsademic. It is everything I expected in a childrens newspaper. The variety and international nature of the articles is particularly appropriate at our school, which has a very international student population. One of our most important aims is to help our students become responsible global citizens; Newsademic will be an important part of my classroom.

I really enjoyed receiving News academic issues. I teach in an international school, so it works well for nearly all my students. Many are from different countries so the newspaper is especially appropriate for them.

I have been making Newsademic available for students studying on EAP courses at since its launch. These readers are normally going on to do Masters degrees at the University or elsewhere in the UK. They find the contents a stimulating variation from the more formal academic texts they are normally confronted with and I encourage them to read for fluency practice as well as to broaden their knowledge of world affairs and topical issues.

Thanks again for the English newspaper for kids.

Whilst I'm mailing can I just say how great the your English newspapers for children are. My ten year old loves them and is learning so much about world affairs. The new activity packs are absolutely excellent too and really encourage an understanding of the topics covered. I introduced it to my son's school and understand they have already contacted you about putting the newspaper of the school intranet.

Very impressed with the sample and trial English news for children issues. I especially like the no advertising and no TV, pop music, sport, and pop culture conditions. Articles appear to be informative and clear, yet not "dumbed down". Maps included are nice and clear. Well done!

When I was forwarded a copy of the on-line current affairs for children journal I was impressed by the world awareness and focus on the issues without the sensationalism that often clouds the real valuable news. Your editorial staff is spot-on with the language and tone! The format is ideal for high-school and I look forward to including your interesting news for teenagers articles in my discussions / seminars and as a source for student research.

I have just looked through my free copy of Newsademic and would like to congratulate you on such an excellent newspaper for teenagers. I have been looking for children's newspaper articles to extend and interest my 9-year-old son. He is clearly interested in this sort of thing as he skims our Economist subscription on a regular basis but I have been aware that the articles are too lengthy and complex for him. He thought Newsademic looked great and I am sure he will read it cover to cover. The international focus is great. Although we are currently in our home country, NZ, my son has already lived in NY and London and we expect to move again so I want him to remain connected to the rest of the world. I can assure you that the news will be considerably better than the pitiful international section of our local papers, so my husband and I will probably read it too! The glossary crossword is a brilliant and fun way to build vocabulary and the maps and photos great. We will proceed to buy a subscription immediately - thanks also for reasonable price - affordable even for those of us paying in NZ dollars!

I am also in the process of sending a fax through to request an invoice to be sent to my office. Looking forward to using Newsademic. In addition, I would like to take this brief opportunity to congratulate you all on a great newspapers for teenagers resource. From what I've seen already, it looks great and the accompanying classroom activities are fantastic.

I'm an American homeschooler with a 10-year-old daughter, and we love the sample newspapers for young children we just received.

I am so glad that I found your free online newspapers for children and chose to subscribe. It is such fantastic value for money.

Parent in the USA



We are enjoying getting Newsademic and are finding the kids news paper both useful and informative.

School in USA



Wow I have just received the first free copy of your newspaper for kids and what a nice surprise, I read it through and loved the total use of facts only, no unnecessary trashy articles, I will be letting my 9 year old read this, and I know it will keep her reading to the end, a big thank you for creating world news for kids and giving them a chance to learn about our world on a daily basis, so much more educational than a comic.

We already downloaded the latest issue last night and have completed a few of the activities with my children, even my 7 year old really enjoyed it and was able to answer some questions. I am very impressed with your children's news paper, level of professionalism and academic level of your paper. I also have received feedback from one in our group that it was an even better newspapers for kids than she realized, which is great.

Our growing back log of issues never fails to please our teaching staff. Especially those who are actively engaged in teaching English news for kids to our foreign students many of whom are from both Hong Kong and mainland China. Keep up the excellent work at bringing the international news to schools. Thanking you.
