Hot Take English is for people whose first language is not English and who want to communicate in English about topics related to politics, activism and social justice - but in a simplified, level-appropriate way.
With the latest news as a basis for all of the material provided here. Including;
simplified news articles

Hot Take English will allow you to learn English in a way that is interesting as well as useful to you.
We want to equip you with the language knowledge to go out and make the world a better place, to debate and challenge people and to educate yourself on the topics that you actually care about.
Expect to learn about a vast range of topics in English, including anti-racism, LGBTQI+ rights, anti-colonialism, feminism, climate change, activism, protest, inequality, migration, the economy, corruption, human rights... and many more!
