For sale, baby shoes, never worn: Hemingway probably did not write the famous six-word story. Photo by AFP/Getty Images Quote Investigator is a terrific website that examines the provenance of popular quotations, which, as you may have noticed, frequently get misattributed online. On Monday, the site’s proprietor, Garson O’Toole, looked into a six-word fiction supposedly written by Ernest Hemingway: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” David Haglund is a senior editor at Slate.

Describe an Imaginary Place or Strange Land Summer is a season of travel, a time of sandy beaches, hypnotic sunshine, stamped tickets, and the excited laughter of children visiting out-of-the-ordinary places. Summer vacations—and the summer months—fill our minds with those moments of wonder and imagination so natural to childhood and keep us connected to our own children. But sometimes the household budget doesn’t stretch quite far enough for exotic adventures. What to do? Selfie This EFL lesson plan is designed around a short film by Matthew Frost starring Kirsten Dunst, and the theme of celebrity selfies. Students discuss meeting famous people, roleplay meeting their hero or heroine, watch a short film and discuss selfies and celebrity selfies. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free. Language level: Intermediate (B1) – Advanced (C1) Learner type: Teens and adults Time: 90 minutes
Met Film School - Documentary Courses The Met Film School is London's leading provider of practical filmmaking courses, based in Ealing Studios. About our Documentary Courses: Documentary filmmaking is a genre that calls upon a filmmaker's ability to tell an interesting visual and narrative story, whilst relaying truthful and accurate information. Subsequently it defines its own set of learning criteria that is both complimentary to and distinct from other areas of filmmaking. We offer students the option to study documentary both as a standalone eight-week course or as part of our one-year and BA programmes. In all instances, students will be given the opportunity to make their own short documentary film. So whether you are just starting out as a documentary filmmaker, or you have relevant experience and are hoping to develop your skills further, we have a study programme to suit you.
