I have mentioned Breaking news in the past with someone on here but I am going to share a couple of links from the BBC Enlgish learning site that I think makes it great. I use these exercises with my A" and B1 groups.
The site is set up with current news and events.
The articles are simplified for non=native readers.
You then have exercises you can do as a comprehension test.
Sometimes there are synonymous words to choose from the article which is awesome for extending your vocabulary and in general as the stories are updated so regularly it means you can hold a conversation or understand a conversation about current events!
Here is a link to all the graded news stories (it is a huge archive!)
Secondly, they have multi-speed listening tests which you can find here; https://breakingnewsenglish.com/multi-speed-listening.html
