Learning English with Christmas Lights

This video really is a gift in my Countdown to Christmas technology Advent Calendar. Canberra barrister , David Richards , has just won the Guiness book of records for the biggest LED Christmas light display. His incredibly success has been driven by a wish to help others and recover from his own sad loss. His pain has brought us all so much light because it has been the driving force behind creating something so magnificent which inspires others and raises thousands of dollars for SIDS, Mr. Richards lost a little son to SIDS in 2002 and wanted to raise money to help other parents in a similar situation have access to quality counselling. To achieve his goal he has created the most dazzling display the world has ever seen and taught us all about teaching, learning and sharing what you have done. The BBC picked the story up for its English lessons. The video goes through the text, highlights the vocabulary, repeats the text. Technology is such a boon to language teachers. Before we had to repeat he text. We had to keep repeating the vocabulary . We had to keep repeating and repeating and our voices were strained and sometimes damaged. The video shows you how effective it is to get those sentence pattern and key word repetitions into your head so you can easily speak a language. The report, though, is on David Richard’s achievement and when I looked up the back story I found out just how wonderful a story it was. It was even  more of a bonus to find out that David Richards came from out capital city, Canberra.
