Today we picked a very topical video for our Turkish students, the start of construction of the Third Bosphorus Bridge! The article appeared on the Reuters news service on May 29, 2013. You can find a copy of the article here. This is a great article for all Turkish students of English, but especially those working in design, engineering, architecture and construction. We hope that our Turkish students of English enjoy this Turkish focused article!
This is an upper-intermediate to advanced article containing some relatively challenging vocabulary. We recommend this article for experienced students, especially IELTS students.
