ESL English Lesson: New Suez Canal for Egypt
David Robinson

A new Suez Canal is being built in Egypt. It will run alongside the current Suez Canal. The idea is simple – by building a second canal it will allow the number of ships passing through to practically double, thus increasing trade. This will mean a lot more money coming into the Egyptian economy.

The idea is the brainchild of Egypt’s President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi who is hoping the new second canal will kickstart the country’s ailing economy. For the last few years it has been down on its knees; due to the Arab Spring happening and ultimately then falling flat on its face.

Reading: Students should now read the article aloud, swapping readers every paragraph. Article quiz - Students quiz each other in pairs. Roleplay: One of you is the interviewer. The others are one of the following people. You are in the Egypt FM radio studio in Cairo.
