Monica MIRZA's insight:

The video displays arguments favouring code learning : charismatic ICT world leaders hammering the necessity of coding in nowadays modern world. And I have to confess I agree with many of the views they energically assert -but hey !  Not with all of them, not all the time....

The video (abridged) might be used to deal with all of the 4 Frenc 'BAC' exam notions... though I'd probably mainly focus on power / progress.

"The History of Christmas Cards" | whychristmas.com | ELT resources designed for building EFL-ESL lessons & courses | Scoop.it

Since the advent of film and television production, Shakespeare's plays have been adapted, re-imagined, and performed on screen hundreds of times.
