Learning English - Words in the News - Protests in Brazil + other lessons & articles

Learning English - Words in the News - Protests in Brazil + other lessons & articles | ESOL methods and materials | Scoop.it
Thousands march in Brazilian cities to protest about public transport costs and the expense of the World Cup. Video Words in the News: 19 June 2013

and also:

http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/brazil/130619/brazil-protests-sao-paulo-and-rio-lower-public-transit-fare

 

"Brazil's protests are about far more than a bus fare. Which is why it should come as no surprise that authorities' decision to reverse planned price hikes in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janiero hasn't cleared protesters from the streets.

Some came out in celebration; others decried the police violence, corruption, poor public services and government misspending that has prompted hundreds of thousands of people to join Brazil's biggest mass movement in years. They're just some of the red flags signalling that next year's World Cup, the biggest event on the soccer calendar, might not go smoothly. Here are five signs Brazil isn't ready to play host. "

Hi Richard - this is a great idea and I think is useful but it wouldn't work when I just tried it. I I rtied three of the topics and just got a blank screen - there was a 1/5 indicator in the top RH corner,but no question.... Good luck with tweaking it and let me know how you get on :)
Richard Edwards's comment, December 29, 2012 4:06 AM
Hi Jo - thanks for the heads up! How odd. It seems fine here, but I have tweaked sth that may affect some users. Let me know if that sorts it out and if not, could you tell me which internet browser and version number you're using? Thanks ever so much! R
Jo Gakonga's comment, December 29, 2012 9:44 AM
Hi there- just used it once and it worked but then tried again via Google and it didn't - it might be me. I use IE but not sure which version... Best, Jo
