This paper discusses the effective use of English newspapers for TEFL instruction. Teaching English through newspapers has begun to attract the attention of school teachers recently. Newspaper is one of the most familiar sources of information. It provides us with topical, interesting and useful information. In this paper I would like to introduce my two-staged approach to teaching English through newspapers. The first stage is how the students learned to read newspaper articles. The second is how the articles were used in a communicative way. Lastly, the methodology of this approach is discussed, and some suggestions are made for further study.
