I would like to bring to everyone's attention a very interesting and powerful resource: http://www.democracynow.org/.
What you will find is that they present a discussion of current social topics with the complete transcript in the same page.
On this site on the homepage, look on hte left column that says 'archives' and then click on 'browse archives by date'. Once there, click, for example, on May 2006, then click on Headlines for May 31, 2006. You will then find that the day's news is read with all the transcripts below...
This site's host is Amy Goodman. Her pronunciation of English is slow, clear and perfect for more advanced students...
The site is full of these transcripts and video files. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on the use of this resource.
