It was a day that changed the world forever, the terrorist attacks of 9/11 on the World Trade Centre changed how we live or lives today and travel. Anyone old enough to have been around on that fateful day on September 1th 2001 will almost certainly remember where they were and how they felt when they heard the news that two passenger planes had purposely been flown into both towers of the World Trade Centre, New York, causing the deaths of thousands of innocent lives and billions of dollars in damage.

ESL News English: The D-Day Landings (1944)

By 1944, the Second World War was on the turn after the German forces' disasterous campaign in Russia and with the Germans also being pushed back in North Africa. The time had come for a full allied landing in Europe which would eventually lead to the end of WWII.

The 6th June 1944 will be forever known as D-Day (which stood for 'Day' Day) - the day in which the allies stormed the beaches at Normandy, France, in a bid to make a foothold in Europe and to force the European campaign.


In this ESL News English lesson, students will discuss what they know about World War Two and any other conflicts they know. They'll then practice their reading skills to learn facts about D-Day and work in pairs to find and expand their vocabulary about war and conflict. Your students will love this war-themed News English worksheet about D-Day and the Second Worls War.
