The Advantages of Reading English Magazines Online
James: Don’t you sometimes read ‘The Economist’ online?
Jack: Yes, I do. I read it online when I haven’t got enough money to buy it at the newsagent’s.
James: I regularly read it online during the exam periods, because it often happens that I haven’t got enough time to read the whole magazine.
Jack: And this way you’ll just click on the articles you are really interested in.
James: And we haven’t even mentioned the issue of being environment friendly. If we read it online, we won’t support wasting so much paper!
Jack: That’s right. OK, I think I’ll go to the café and have some coke. Don’t you want to come there with me?

In the Café: Further Advantages of Reading Magazines Online
James: I think we should talk about further advantages of reading magazines online.
Jack: Yes, we should. For example, I think the time factor is really important. Today most people are in a hurry all the time. Look at my laptop, and let’s check how long it takes me to find the ‘Politics This Week’-section. You know, it took me exactly 14 seconds to find it!
James: How amazing! And the other good thing about it is that your boss in an office won’t even notice you if you click on it!
Jack: That’s true! And another thing: you can also look at any similar coverage in other magazines with a good search engine.
James: Yes, it doesn’t take very long to find these websites. And you don’t need to spend a fortune on all these magazines!
Jack: But don’t you think we should go to our lecture? It’s one minute to ten!
James: All right. Let’s go to the lecture!

Learning Business English from the Internet
Paul: Have you found anything interesting in the ‘Markets and Data’ section?
Sue: Yes, I have. There’s an interesting article about ‘Sinopec.’
Paul: Sinopec? I’ve never heard about it. Is it a company?
Sue: Yes, it’s a Chinese oil company. The article says Sinopec agreed to buy an oil-production unit from TNK-BP, BP’s Russian venture.
Paul: Does it mean that China is breaking into the Russian oil market?
Sue: Yes, it does. Have you found anything interesting?
Paul: Yes, there’s an interesting article about the ‘Filthy Rich.’
Sue: Really? What’s it about?
Paul: It says that there were 8.7 million people with liquid financial assets of more than 1 million dollars in 2005. Two-thirds of them live in North America (2.9 m) and Europe (2.8 m). Most of the rest (2.4 m) live in the Asia-Pacific region.
Sue: Oh, it sounds interesting!
