How do I read English news on the app?

It's exciting to read news every day. By reading them, it helps to understand the world.

But do I read them? Do I read all of them? How do I choose? And then how to read them?

I would like to share my experience.

News published on the app might be written by different writers. If you like someone's style or specific area, you can search online the writer's name or theme you like. 

As for reading, you can choose the topic that interests you and find the news feed and start reading everything related to that specific topic or area.

Take culture as an example. You can search for Chinese culture or even global events. You can search something like Tomb Sweeping Day and International Labor Day.

Let's talk about reading: R-E-A-D.

It is really easy to read news if you know what the structure of news is.

The first sentence is the leading one and that offers the main information. Like when, who, where, what, and why. 

But you will find that the leading sentence is too short and it doesn't have all the information. The second and the third sentences might give you more, like 'why' and 'how'.

Other information might follow these paragraphs. The least important information might be at the end of the news.

While reading, you might get flummoxed by some words or sentences; leave them alone and keep reading.

After you finish reading, go back to the words and sentences and try your best to understand them and know how to use them and why the writer used them there. 

Last but not least, you can try to understand why the writer chose to write it that way or why the writer took such a perspective. If someone asked you to choose the same theme, would you choose the same perspective?
