The world we live in now is a global world, or in sociological language, we call it a global village. People are now connected with each other digitally. You cannot just talk to anyone sitting in the other corner of the world, but you can run and do business anywhere in the world virtually. The market has expanded and now there is one global market of buyers and investors. This new digital era has surpassed the hurdles like time and space between countries and regions. In this rapidly changing world, we need to keep up our pace with the rest of the world in order to survive. But how can we do so? How can we move with the outside world? The answer is information. This is the era of information, you have to keep yourself well informed. And one of the best mediums for getting the information is international news. Here’s how international news can benefit you:
Enhance your knowledge
There are so many stories and matters when you start reading news, and if you follow the news regularly you know about the developments which are happening around the world. It can be an economic matter or political issue, you can learn about international sports fashion. If you are a student of international affairs or journalism this can be the best source of your knowledge to stand out in your class.
Increases your grip over the language
When you read and listen to the foreign news it helps you improve your grip over that language. You know the exact pronunciation and the right words to use. If you are a writer or like to write, you can learn a lot from international news. If you aspire to be a journalist, follow the articles of the foreign journalists to have different ideas or writing.
Gives you a broader perspective
You see the same local news the whole day, anything can be breaking news in Pakistan, and you listen to the same politicians and journalists with their opinions. It makes you think in the same way, you cannot think out of your bubble if you only follow local national news. International news gives you another perspective to see, you observe what is happening in other countries and the developments in the world are affecting you and your country.
Take the current major issue of our country which is increasing inflation, now the people who follow international news will know that inflation is not just a national issue but the whole world is experiencing an immense inflation rate. Due to the pandemic, the supply chain all across the world got disrupted, even the US is experiencing the worst inflation in years. This will help you think more critically and clearly.
Connects you to the global world
Do you ever have the fear of missing out (FOMO)? That is what’s going on around you and you should have the information about it because you just can’t miss things out. Well, I have, I want to get connected to the world through social media or news so that I don’t miss out on anything, this makes me feel left out. International news is the source for me to stay connected to the world.
Let’s say during this pandemic, international news helped me keep aware of other countries’ policies regarding Covid, it was like we were all in this together. Moreover, you get to know what are the new trends, the latest inventions, and discoveries. What milestones people in different countries have achieved. This gives you a sense of connection and can also inspire you in many ways.
It fulfills the true purpose of news
News is basically a tool to get information, it is not specified to the national or local news. Its purpose is to provide information from all over the world. Through international news, you can know the facts and the true events happening around the world. It also serves the purpose of entertainment and sports or even fashion. If you are a Pakistani football fan you can get the news regarding football only through international news. The breaking news in Pakistan can only be about cricket.
International news can benefit you in any way you want, you can find foreign newspapers to read or you can read digital papers. You can follow different authentic pages on social media to get recent and daily updates. You have access to everything, you just need to develop the interest.
