The language teacher asked us to find a newspaper article about any war. We had to find war vocabulary or words that we didn’t know. I found this article in BBC about the Syrian war.
Here is the link to it: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-35806229
It talked about why is there a war in Syria, how did it start, what is the war about, and also showed many stats about the war, for example, how many people have died because of it.
These are the words that I didn’t know and some war vocabulary.
Dissent: the holding or expression of opinions at variance with those commonly or officially held.
Fostering: encourage the development of (something, especially something desirable). Encourage, promote, further, stimulate, advance, forward, cultivate.
Torn: ripped, split, slit, cut, lacerated, rent, separated, severed, cracked, destroyed, ruined, in disrepair.
Full-scale civil war: a civil war is when there is a war which involves only one country, there are two groups of people who want different things and because of that a war may break out. When it is full-scale it means all the country is involved.
