Friday, 24th December

This is the last ‘Free Resources’ message till 6th January. If you’re getting a break, luxuriate!

1. This has been around since 2016 but was new to me earlier this week: If The World Were 100 People https://youtu.be/QFrqTFRy-LU

2. Eating eels, electing bean kings and Roland the Farter: part of the medieval Christmas and New Year festivities in the UK https://theconversation.com/eating-eels-electing-bean-kings-and-roland-the-farter-part-of-the-medieval-christmas-and-new-year-festivities-174003 With a free Latin word at the end of the piece: bumbulum!

3. I don’t always – often! – agree with the political views expressed in The Spectator magazine https://www.spectator.co.uk/ but this list of The Spectator’s best films of 2021 includes a number I hope to watch over the Christmas break https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-spectator-s-best-films-of-2021 Starting with The Power of the Dog tonight, which I hope is at least half as good as Thomas Savage’s book https://youtu.be/LRDPo0CHrko

4. And, finally, a fun piece by Sarah DeVries from Mexico News Daily, Learning a language leads to something greater than the sum of its parts https://mexiconewsdaily.com/opinion/sarah-devries/learning-language-more-than-collecting-words/

See you next year – thanks for reading!
