They crossed the state lines with the sole intent of shaking up the status quo and doing it in a way that would change the trajectory of history forever.

For ten weeks, over 1,000 college students, black and white, inundated Mississippi looking to be the spark that would ignite positive change.

For those teachers who wanted to be good at Business English I would recommend three websites related to Business English, listen to podcasts, read English newspapers every day, watch videos and use dictionaries.

1/Learn English Today (abbreviations, vocabulary, games, interviews, business conversations, etcetera)

2/Business English Site ( general Business English, sales and marketing, listening comprehension texts, reading texts, etcetera)

3/Teaching English Org.(meetings, socialising, lesson plans and worksheets included)

Moreover I would insist on reading English newspapers such as The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail or The Daily Telegraph on a regular basis. Anyway, there are plenty of online magazines and newspapers with brilliant articles (Buzzfeed, The Independent, The New Yorkers, The Guardian)

Watching videos on @YouTube, the news on @euronews and listening to podcasts on @BBC_podcasts is essential to keep English alive
