Newswatch is a program that is geared at helping international students with their English comprehension, listening, speaking skills. Both students and volunteer helpers watch and listen to two recorded news items as a group. In the first screening of the news, students listen while the helpers write down phrases or words that the students might possibly find difficult to understand. During second screening, the students write down the words and phrases that they do not understand. After, both students and helpers would get into smaller groups to discuss the things that have been written down before watching the news a third time. Newswatch is a really great opportunity to connect, meet and build friendships with International students at Massey Wellington. From friendships that have been fostered at Newswatch, several students have accepted invitations to study the Bible with us.
