Practice your language skills by reading the news! International newspapers are also a good way to learn about what's happening in other countries in more depth than the US press provides, as well as to gain an "outside" perspective on how the US is perceived in other countries.
Onlinenewspapers.com is a large, easy to use collection of links to newspapers from many countries.
The databases below provide indexing and fulltext to newspapers and sometimes to news magazines and other news sources. Most of these are US sources. Academic Search Elite, Ethnic Newswatch, Lexis/Nexis, and ProQuest Newspapers include material from international sources.
