Korean train journey keeps MEC news on track

We’re introducing a new feature on connect2mec. Every week we’ll update you on the latest news item that we publish on MEC. Each month we’ll also update you on the word games we publish.

This week’s MEC news item is about a historic train journey between North and South Korea. It is the first train journey between the two countries since 1950. What does this mean for the future economic and political relationship between North and South Korea? Go to the Headline News area on MEC to find out more.

We have always included Food for Thought questions with our news items because they are something that can be used in the classroom to help stimulate discussion. We’re interested to know how you use these questions in class. Please let us know by leaving a comment.
