    newspaper articles

    I would like to attend this school in one year.
    http://www.imc-krems.ac.at/IMC/Uni/C...-en/tourismus/

    For the interview I have to sum up a newspaper article...
    http://www.imc-krems.ac.at/IMC/Uni/C...ourismus/info/


    So I would like to practice every day reading at least one newspaper article. I have heard that they prefer the Guardian Newspaper.
    The articles should be about economic and tourism.
    Do you have any newspaper which you could recommend? Do you know any sites on the internet where i can look up the articles free of charge (archive)?

    Thank you.

    As well as the Gurdian online, The times does a full edition: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/
    www.breakingnewsenglish.com does lesson plans around news topics, so you could have a look there for practice.

    Watch out, doign your search type in "economics": economic is an adjective...

    Cheers,

    Why not use the Guardian if that is what they prefer? However, I think that any reputable paper should be OK if they haven't indicated one- they will judge you on what you say about the article.
