A resource for American investors. There are topical stories on the home page, and the Tutorials section gives high-level explanations of financial/investing issues. The Dictionary and Articles sections are also worth looking at.

Short articles that simplify (a lot) the topics on a typical MBA course.

#ELTchat on Twitter

Every Wednesday on Twitter there is a great chat session under #eltchat. The debate is high quality. And every week someone volunteers to post a summary of the discussion on this (non Twitter) website. Not specifically BE, but recommended.


Need some up-to-date and stimulating texts for the techies in your class? You’ll find them here.

Business Week

I’ve been a subscriber to both Business Week and the Economist since my twenties. I personally find BW is better for ELT purposes. As always with authentic texts, check any article carefully for level, length and usefulness of language.

EL Gazette

The EL Gazette is an online newspaper for the international ELT community. Ever wanted to get a sense of the wider ELT world beyond your classroom and staffroom? Start here. Registration required, but it’s free.
