“The world has a new mania — a mania for learning English,” said Jay Walker on the TED stage in 2009.

English is accepted as a shared language of science, a language of global business and the language of the Internet, with at least 1.5 billion students learning it worldwide. So the TED Distribution team wondered: What if students could learn English through TED Talks?

To test this theory, we’ve partnered with National Geographic Learning and Cengage Learning to roll out three English-language curriculums, each grounded in the ideas of TED speakers. The first in the series: World English, a four-level survey course that teaches basic reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. For those a little more advanced: 21st-Century Reading, which is designed…

Custodians of living history

Originally posted on National Trust Press Office:

The Woodland Trust’s Ancient Tree Specialist, Jill Butler, writes about her favourite National Trust trees and the threats facing the UK’s historic trees.

“As a tree archaeologist, I don’t find it very surprising that the National Trust for England, Wales and Northern Ireland is one of the major custodians of ancient and other veteran trees.

“One of the most special on my list would be the Ankerwycke Yew at Runnymede in Surrey. It is thought to be the location where King John, almost 800 years to the day, sealed the Magna Carta. Yews, which can live such long lives, were often used to distinguish burial or religious sites or venues for special occasions.

Katzenjammer – I Will Dance (When I Walk Away)

In our cold and empty house
I lingered now for far too long
I vainly held the rosary
To pray you’d stay with me a while

But nothing seems to keep me here
The way it used to do before
This time it’s me that’s leaving you
I’ll never turn around

(Bridge)
Cause when the laughter’s gone
I know I must be moving on

(Refrain)
And I will dance when I walk away

(Verse 2)
I’m standing at the crossroads now
