The New Internationalist Easier English Wiki is intended to be a constantly evolving resource for anyone learning English and teachers of English all around the world. It is open to everyone - please use it and let us know what you think.

The Wiki has now been turned into a series of 3 short booklets (for Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Advanced learners): 'Global Justice in Easier English' - both for self access learning and use in class (eg. on short courses and to supplement course books).
