APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

I think it may be time to re-evaluate the Open University - what do you think?

You are about to see a video called "How the English Language was developed".

Web2Literacy states:
"A fantastic series of ten 1-minute video clips outlining the evolution of the English language from Anglo-Saxon times to the  Internet and Global English.

"Brought to us by the Open University Learn You Tube channel and humourously narrated by Clive Anderson, The history of the English language in 10 minutes amounts to a gem of video material for English language learners.

"Over the next ten posts you will find the ten 1-minute videos with activities for lessons. My main aim with this work is to use video resources to develop speaking in the classroom. Furthermore I think the video resources and activities posted could be used as part of a project on the History of English or a learners’ language histories project. I hope you and your students enjoy the videos and activities. Any suggestions of your own would be very welcome."
 Clive Anderson is extremely funny and each stage only takes one minute. Enjoy and pass this on if you are on Twitter as it deserves a wider audience.
