Payzee Mahmod | TEDxLondonWomen - A true story.

Over my thirty four years of teaching, pupils and students have often told me that they like true stories.

Here is a gut-wrenching one. This TEDxLondonWomen talk lasts 18mn.

It's worth the while. Those of my pupils who will tell me at what time she says in this 18'45'' vid :
" Childhood, up to 18 should be a time to learn, to grow and to pursue your dreams."
So those pupils who will tell me when she says that in the video ;-) will get a good grade... 
They can even ask, in the comment section of this post, some indication... I do want you all to succeed in learning English as your second language, or third or fourth. The larger the number of languages we speak, the better.

Sir Ken Robinson 1950-2020

Sir Ken Robinson

Life is short but wisdom, values remain.

Sir Ken Robinson died Last August from an aggressive cancer, not from Covid, eventhough this is 2020.

I hope you'll listen to it all. 

"People love to learn he says."

What he says before and after that is really something. 

"There is an opportunity, it takes bravery and imagination and we have plenty of that in store."

You've heard of the boiling frog syndrom. Haven't you?

Some reading about anger

“If someone infringes on your rights, you need to tell them. Directly tell people what you’re mad about, and what you need.”

A French mensch

A mensch is a person of integrity and honor in North American English.

Let's translate this speech, in as many languages as possible,
so that every citizen of the Earth listens to this famous French actor, "specialized in nothing, interested in everything".

Listen to the propositions of Vincent Lindon French citizen. particularly the "Jean Valjean tax".
