Evolution

I came across this short video while reading the paper, clicked on it and was strangely mesmerised. I found it beautiful and compelling but at the same time very thought-provoking. I then discovered two more things: firstly, that I was one of the few people on the planet still unaware of its existence and secondly, that not all people felt it was as pure and innocent as I did. The exercise also makes use of the online comments on the article in the paper, which is something I think is a brilliant resource for vocabulary and discussion.

      Yes, Mura. We’ll have to further explore the whole area of comments on articles. It’s becoming ubiquitous and it’s a goldmine for language teaching. Lots of great structures and useful chunks although some censorship is often advisable!! And thanks for commenting yourself! It’s always great to get people’s feedback on the posts.
