Modern Foreign Languages - In the spotlight

Pressing words

Online newspaper The Day explores the ethical issues behind the news for AS and A-level students, and translates stories on major events such as the French presidential election into the language of the source country.

Packs for schools include: stories translated into French, Spanish, Italian and German; three illustrated topical articles a day; glossaries of key words and ideas; video and weblinks for further research; and slideshows of the best news photographs.

Students can write a translation summary, pick out key words and practise their dictionary skills. For information on subscriptions, visit
