-- Develop your English writing skills through the fun and exciting context of journalism. Become a reporter for the ILSC Student Newspaper through exploring the city, investigating issues that are important to you, and interviewing people in the local community. Strengthen your writing and reading skills by researching local and global news topics and writing short news articles and blogs.
The main goal of English Through Journalism is for people to improve their written and spoken English. A lot of discussion about things that are to do with Journalism and about telling stories. And also there’s a lot of writing involved as well.
When you say journalism, you think about people interviewing other people and writing or television. And I, I like writing.
Spend that first week looking at how news articles are put together. Also we’ll look at how paragraphs are put together, you know, what is a topic sentence, so we do cover some of the technical aspects of how things are written.
The first week it was like an introduction to journalism. And now we chose a topic. We are doing some research. And we started writing the first draft.
The final stage is correcting things like spellings, grammar, vocabulary.
So we have to write articles for the magazine, then we sell it and it’s pretty cool because half of the money goes to charity. I see myself writing about science or culture, and travelling around the whole world with National Geographic and my camera and taking pictures and writing articles, nice, yeah.
