William Shakespeare born - Apr 23, 1564 According to tradition, the great English dramatist and poet William Shakespeare is born in Stratford-on-Avon on April 23, 1564. It is impossible to be certain the exact day on which he was born, but church records show that he was baptized on April 26, and three days was a customary amount of time to wait before baptizing a newborn. Shakespeare’s date of death is conclusively known, however: it was April 23, 1616. He was 52 years old and had retired to Stratford three years before. Although few plays have been performed or analyzed as extensively as the 38 plays ascribed to William Shakespeare, there are few surviving details about the playwright’s life. He probably attended the grammar school in Stratford, where he would have studied Latin and read classical literature. The first reference to Shakespeare as a London playwright came in 1592, when a fellow dramatist, Robert Greene, wrote derogatorily of him on his deathbed. Shakespeare died in Stratford-on-Avon on April 23, 1616.

12 songs to practice the pronunciation of -ED endings - Luiz Otávio Barros As you know, the “-ed” endings of regular past tense verbs can be pronounced in three different ways: /t/, /d/ and /ɪd/, which is the one most students tend to overuse. Click here for an overview of the rules. Over the years, I have found that /t/ and /d/ are easier to notice and to produce if the verb comes immediately before a word beginning with a vowel sound: liked it – /laɪktɪt/dreamed of – /driːmdəv/ To help students get their tongues around the two sounds, I usually ask them to move /t/ and /d/ to the front of the vowel sound. This makes it obvious that there’s no room for /ɪ/: liked it – /laɪk tɪt/dreamed of – /driːm dəv/ Out of all the ideas and techniques I’ve used in class, this has probably been the most effective. So I decided to put together a 7-minute video containing 12 song excerpts you can use to help your students notice how /t/ and /d/ are linked to the vowel sounds that follow. By the way, if the video is out of synch, go back to the beginning and / or refresh the page.

A week after Air New Zealand launched its latest inflight safety video – which swiftly went viral, clocking up 16 million views on YouTube – British Airways has released its star-studded equivalent. The six-minute film runs through the safety instructions for BA flights, as well as introducing their Flying Start charity, which supports Comic Relief. The video – produced in conjunction with the charity – features the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Gordon Ramsay and Gillian Anderson running through the safety demo. Thandie Newton is on hand to explain where the emergency exits are, Rob Brydon demonstrates the use of a lifejacket, and Sir Ian McKellen and Warwick Davis show how to use an oxygen mask. Jim Broadbent, meanwhile, demonstrates how to put his tray table up and down and Rowan Atkinson finishes off the film with some Mr Bean-style capers with the Flying Start donations envelope.
