Ever wondered why purple doesn’t appear on flags, or why there are always four strawberry flavoured yogurts in a packet of eight? I can’t explain the second question, but here’s a really interesting video that explains the reason why countries traditionally didn’t use purple on their national flags. The video is from After Skool Youtube channel. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
Benjamin Zephaniah’s poem on animal rights and Christmas, is not only thought provoking, but is also put in such a humorous and clever way, that you actually can’t help admiring him as one of Britain’s top post-war writers.
Zephaniah, a dub poet and Rastafarian, once mentioned that his mission was to fight the dead image of poetry and take it to the streets with messages that concerned the daily lives of ordinary people; like you and me.
As an ESL teacher, having the opportunity to introduce students to the culture of my native UK and to poets such as Zephaniah, is really something awesome.

Listening to the news in English is a must for language learning, even if this means news such as the one I have prepared for this listening activity.
Horrified by the news of another wildfire in California, I set myself to prepare a listening activity for my students so they could get into the habit of watching news in English. It was then, when I happened to ‘bump into’ some terrible facts that seem to make some of these fires different from the ones we are, unfortunately becoming more and more familiar with. Some of these fires don’t seem to behave like any other fire. The video is from The Watchman Reporter on Youtube, and I don’t agree on his theory about a divine intervention behind these fires, but I agree that the issues he mentions in his video, make one wonder if they have been caused by other means rather than accidents or arsonists. Watch the video and reach your own conclusion, as this may be true or not.Click to listening
