I've recently started teaching Business English in Moscow. We go through the text =books but need exercises to do inbetween.

We play some games but the students want to study something more contemporary like recent news stories from around the world. I've been looking for extracts on the web but every article is either much too long or too many difficult words. We want to start healthy discussions so any advice on good places to find suitable articles for intermediate students would be really appreciated.

You can find suitable and not complicated articles on newsweek international, euronews english and voa news special english VOA News - Learning American English With News and Feature Programs in VOA Special English (http://www.voanews.com/specialenglish/). etc. They are very useful.

Switch books. Or use printouts.

There are some really cool biz books out there.
