This Week's English Speaking Country


People in southern Sudan began voting on Sunday on whether they want their independence. The are expected to vote "yes" on that question. You might find this link from The New York Times interesting. The BBC has provided us with a helpful Question and Answer Page about the referendum and its consequences. The Wall Street Journal  has an interactive explaining Sudan's turbulent history. Listen here to discover how the charity Plan International is retraining former child soldiers and other young people in skills such as building, mechanics and carpentry so they can build new lives.
