English-to-go’s free lesson (every month)
"ETG’s contract with Reuters allows ETG to adapt news articles into lessons.
There are a lot of wacky news stories that get students reading.  Last month it was the one on the world’s longest interview
in which Hans Olav Lahlum managed to speak for more than 30 hours. And on the site itself http://www.english-to-go.com 
there’s the story about the goat café in Tokyo: where customers can take a goat for walk after they’ve had a coffee,
the Superhero who carries people’s luggage up and down the stairs for free (again in Tokyo),
the intro of exams for kindergarten students in the US and the tourist who found she had a colony of maggots living it up in her ear."

INDIANS in Pine Ridge reservation, SD

The disarming stories of deceit, heartbreak, and violence he heard there changed his life forever.
I know this is a long one, folks, but I guarantee you'll be hooked by his transformation at 4:38, the breathtaking mural at 6:03,
and the devastating words of a 17-year-old at 10:36."
