The Essence of Britishness

The Essence of Britishness

In this lesson you will read an extract from Bill Bryson’s book – Notes from a Small Island – where he describes his first impressions on arriving in Britain twenty years ago.

You will watch some videos about stereotypes generally associated with the British and discuss whether you think there is any truth in any of them. You will chose the ‘Greatest Briton’ of all times, and prepare a 5-minute oral presentation about him/her for your class. Finally, you will write an article explaining why you admire this person.
