Linguapress EFL newsmagazines, published from 1980 to 2001, had readers in high schools and further education all over Europe, notably in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Norway... and as far away as Japan and Mongolia. In the pre-Internet era, before the World Wide Web put worldwide news in any language into every school at the click of a mouse, Linguapress newsmagazines in graded English offered teachers and students the unusual ability to keep abreast of the current affairs from the English-speaking countries. was set up in 1998 to publish and develop material from the Linguapress archives, add new material, and make it available to teachers and students worldwide.
