164 In...Milan!

September 26, 2014


This is the last of our special summer edition of Hiroshima University's English News Weekly Podcast. In 2013 ENW travelled three incredibly interesting European cities - Paris, Edinburgh & Lisbon. This summer, ENW is on the move again to another 4 European cities. The last city finds ENW travelling to northern Italy and the major financial city of Milan.

English News Weekly will again be visiting four interesting and unique sites of Milan, a city that is both historic and modern. We will start with perhaps the heartbeat of the city's population – the San Siro Stadium home to Milan's two football teams. We then move onto Milan's historic cathedral before taking a break in a beautiful park on a gorgeous summer day. ENW ends its trip with a night at perhaps the most famous operatic theatre in the world – La Scala.

September 08, 2014


This is the third special summer edition of Hiroshima University's English News Weekly Podcast. In 2013 ENW travelled three incredibly interesting European cities - Paris, Edinburgh & Lisbon. This summer, ENW is on the move again to another 3 European cities. For the past two weeks, ENW has been in the canal city of Amsterdam as well as two well-known English cities, Liverpool and Manchester - download ENW episodes 161 & 162 to find out where we went to!

This week ENW is travelling back to the continent to visit Berlin, the capital of Germany. ENW will start with one of the most powerful images of the country - the Brandenburg Gate. Then it will go up to the very top of a huge glass dome of the Reichstag. After enjoying "bratwurst" for lunch in a scenic park, ENW will find out what has happened to the iconic symbol of a divided Europe - the Berlin Wall.
