Can you recommend me internet sites where I can both listen to and read the news in English? I need to practise the vocabulary used when reporting news, especially that concerning car accidents.
Here are some more sentences I'm not sure of.

1) John Lennon's song "Give peace a chance" became a special song for the peace movement.
Which John Lennon's song became a special song...?
(Whose song became a special song for the peace movement? For whom did John Lennon's song become a special song?)
2) There is also a strong anti-war message in John's most famous song "Imagine". What kind of message is there in John's most famous song?
3) The war lasted until 1975.
Until when did the war last? When did it end/finish?
4) Before World Way II Vietnam was French colony? Of what country was Vietnam a colony before....? Whose country was Vietnam a colony?
5) When the French left Vietnam the country divided into two parts. How many parts did V. divide into? OR In (into) how many parts did Vietnam divide?

    Podcasts are good ways to hear English (or any other language). To play them, you might need to go to www.itunes.com and download the program; it's free. Install it on your computer and use it to organize your podcasts. (You can also buy music and other things through itunes, but you don't have to.)
