What is Global Newsroom?
I am very excited to welcome you to El Colombiano’s Global Newsroom, a blog created in order to offer readers the chance to find current news about Colombia and Latin America written in English.
It is an opportunity for Hispanics to practice the language with current, relevant vocabulary and information, as well as for native English speakers to read and learn about Colombia. This is not to say you will not find articles about the rest of the world, but there may be fewer of them due to the fact that English speaking media already covers these events and information is readily available.
For me, the author, it is a privilege to write these articles. I consider it an opportunity to make sure Colombia is not only known about when there is something wrong, but also for its achievements and positive developments.
I will make every attempt to give readers extra information, be it through links to informative sites or explanations posted on the blog itself, in order to teach about Colombia’s government, geography, economy and people.
I am looking forward to the beginning of Global Newsroom, and will take my job as the link between El Colombiano and the English speaking world very seriously. I am proud to be a Colombian, and I sincerely hope this blog will give others a chance to become familiar with a beautiful country.
