    each kind of article that is trustable.
    you know, when i surf the net to find articles, i find all kinds of articles. but i want true ones. the ones i can make lectures on and rely on.
    i suggest a forum. we members send good articles, and a teacher checks them and then, each member can see it.


    is it possible?

    So texts on various subjects (music, books, food, clothes, science, etc.), whose grammar and content had been verified, for use as teaching material?

    dear friend.
    i need up to date articles, not only for teaching, but also for my own use. i need these articles because no one can underestand if an article that is published on internet is trustable or not.

    is it possible?
    for example if i want to find George Bush's last speech, i must search lot's of websites and i 'll find different kinds of articles, or even about other topics.
    i need a creditable and autheritative source, and i think teachers of this site can help .

    thanks in advance

    Matilda

    Hello Matilda

    It's an interesting idea. I'll see what those who run the site think.

    That is very true.

    One of the ways you can tell is by seeing if anyone has quoted from a page, or refereced it in any way. This would imply that the author trusted the page/article. However, you still need to make a personal judgement about how much you trust the people that made the reference.

    My advice to you at this stage would have to be this: if I find a website useful (and therefore trustworthy), then I would assume that pages from it are equally trustworthy.

    The topic of whether you can trust something published on the internet is a big one. This is a major problem (from many points of view). In fact, this would make a suerb topic for discussion on the forum!

    I wonder what other members think about this issue?
