What British People Say vs. What They Really Mean British journalist-turned-novelist Lucy Sykes has become known for her snarky social commentary, thanks to her bestseller The Knockoff, a satirical take on the budding fashion tech world. Now, she and co-author Jo Piazza are at it again with their forthcoming novel Fitness Junkie (out July 11), which comically tackles society's wellness obsession. Given Sykes' British background—and her penchant for keeping it real—we asked her and her sister, author Plum Sykes, to give us a breakdown of popular British phrases, and what they really mean.

The Film Trailers Shed The Legend of Tom Trueheart Although this is not a film trailer, (it is a book trailer) I think this is the best place for this to go.

The Magical Forest The ecosystem is a beautifully complex collection of life forms working in harmony. The intricacies of these connections are explored in The Magical Forest, a riveting episode from the BBC's nature series Secrets of our Living Planet. The filmmakers embed themselves in one of the most glorious natural environments in the world: the sprawling seasonal forests of North America. Here, plant and animal life share a stunning give-and-take relationship. The most profound examples of this can be found during the autumn as the cold moves in, insect life burrows deep into the ground, and the trees begin to shed their leaves. Nature depends on a series of surprising relationships in order to thrive during even the harshest of conditions.

Why doesn't the Queen of England need a passport? Miért nincsenek személyes dokumentumai a királynőnek? És mit mond ha a foglalkozásáról kérdezik? As the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom, the commonwealth, and certain other countries that have since declared independence but decided they kind of like having the Queen on their money, Queen Elizabeth II enjoys a number of unique perks not bestowed on any of her subjects. These include being immune from prosecution from any crime she may happen to commit (justice is served in her name); she cannot be compelled to give evidence in court; she owns all of the dolphins, sturgeons and whales found in British waters (she also technically owns all mute swans found on open waters in Britain); she has the ability to declare war on any other nation if she so desires it; and, most pertinent to the present conversation, she doesn’t need a passport to travel abroad.

You can see a few of these books at my Youtube channel zdendarotesl.

Jack the Giant Killer - comic story part 1 Students like reading comics. Comics are often the only thing students read. When I started an extensive reading project last year, students did not mind reading comics, however when we moved to short stories, more than half of them stopped reading and started to hate the programme. On the basis of this experience I have prepared a fairy tale comic for students to read.
