This is the Sainsbury´s Christmas 2014 advert. It commemorates the events that happened on Christmas Day in 1914, when the war (World War I) stopped for a while and German and British troops sang Christmas carols and played football together - this fact is known as the "Christmas truce of 1914"
Everything in the video has been made as accurate as possible, based on historical fact, from the insignia on the men´s uniforms to the depth of the trenches.
The chocolate bar featured in the ad is on sale at Sainsbury´s now and all profits will go to The Royal British Legion
The video below tells the story behind the Christmas ad: the stories told in the diaries of the soldiers, the interviews with the experts who advised the ad creators, the interview with the grandson of a soldier who was there…Click on CC to get the subtitles

A very useful piece of advice from someone you may know:
If you don´t revise properly, you shall not pass!
Sir Ian McKellen the Lord of the Rings star, went to visit Chew Valley School on 17th October 2014. He had this important message for the students gathered outside the library to catch a glimpse of the actor:
“If you don’t do your revision properly, do you know what will happen?”

Little kids will learn anything; watch this one answering a phone call as if he worked at a call center.
Here is some food for thought for you:
On the one hand, this video is a good example of what these calls are like (how one should ask and answer the questions politely, the kind of vocabulary one should use...); on the other hand, a 4-year-old boy should be playing instead of learning the skills of a conversation like this for the mere purpose of somebody else´s smile….What do you think?
