  • “You could not possibly have had a greater loss” Benedict Cumberbatch reads Alan Turing (check!);
  • “I am the dead one” Andrew Scott reads Spike Milligan letter to his elusive friend, George Harrison (check!).


As a preparation for the speaking exercise, you will prepare a five-minute presentation of one of the following NYT’s video (again, your choice!):

  • He Draws New York’s Skyline From Memory (check!);
  • William Eggleston (check!) – If you don’t know this great American photographer, this video might require a little bit of research on the side;
