Poetry Day: 10 British Actors Read 10 British Poems Today is National Poetry Day (October 2) in the UK, and the Brits have always done pretty well at providing the world with poems and people who are good at reading poems, here are 10 poetic moments, provided by some of our favorite actors and actresses. Starting with Benedict Cumberbatch reading “Ode to a Nightingale” by John Keats: And, getting our Anglophenia big two out of the way early, here’s Tom Hiddleston reading W.H. Auden’s “As I Walked Out One Evening,” which uses the folk ballad tradition to draw comparisons between the streets of a city and the fields of the country, with the city clock reminding one and all that natures cycles of birth and death are never too far away:

Introduction - Pre-sessional - ISLC The Pre-sessional Programme is for students who need to improve their English to study on a degree programme at the University of Reading, or other UK universities.

Why study at the ISLI 'Our well-established, high quality Pre-sessional Programme is recognised as "outstanding" by BALEAP, the global forum for EAP professionals.' The International Study and Language Institute (ISLI) has an international reputation for excellence in offering English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses to students from around the world.

The Poetry of 'Doctor Who' Shakespeare is stuck for a rhyme for TARDIS. Poetry has come to play a large part in the way Doctor Who tells a story. If, for example, you wish to add an unsettling undercurrent to a cozy situation, why not have some children recited an eerily specific poem in a spooky way? Or sing a little song with dark lyrics?

Both approaches suggest that the events that are about to unfold were always going to unfold, because in the future (or the past, the Doctor gets about), they are already legendary. About the Test of English for Educational Purposes (TEEP) - ISLC The TEEP is a test of proficiency in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), for students whose first language is not English, and who are planning to study a degree programme at a UK University.

For ESL English Language Learners "1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future, but Orwell’s narrative is now timelier than ever. A startling and haunting vision of the world." "Reading George Orwelll's 1984 in post Edward Snowden America is almost surreal. Perhaps Orwell foresaw that Britain would wield surveillance like an unrestrained weapon, with London boasting more CCTV cameras than any other city in Europe. But he couldn't have guessed that the degree of surveillance he imagined in his worst nightmares, when he wrote the book, would be so easily surpassed by an out-of-control NSA in the United States.
