An upgrade to the website Breaking News English.com means it is easier to use on mobile phones and tablets. Students and teachers who want to browse through the news articles or do the activities on their mobile devices can now do so with ease. The Internet has changed considerably since it started a few decades ago. It is worlds apart from how it looked 20 years ago. Back then, web pages were just text that took a long time to load. People could only view them on bulky computers. Today, we have movies, music, games, GPS and millions of apps on our mobile phones.

The owner of Breaking News English used the website developer markbaindesign.com to make the site mobile friendly. Mark Bain has made many eye-catching sites for some of the world's top teachers. He summed up his thoughts on technology by saying: "Expectations about what can be done on a phone are rising every day." His work has made students happy. Saeed from Kuwait said: "It is now much easier to get to grips with the activities." Rosa from Bolivia said she could now interact with the news articles and exercises while she commutes to work.
