We are 100!
Yes, yes. I know. I promised I would write Childhood II, but I'm afraid you'll have to wait just a little bit longer. I'm sorry. Actually, I'm not sorry, because this is the start of an exciting year, which I thought I'd tell you about. You see, we're 100. Not me personally, you understand. Not even BBC Learning English. In fact, to go off on a slight tangent, can any of you guess how long the BBC has been teaching English on the World Service? We haven't always been called BBC Learning English - we've been called: English by Radio, English by Radio and Television and BBC English.
Anyway, back to the title of this blog. "We" were 100 on 4 September. Any idea who the "we" is? Do you know, I'm going to be very mean and see if you can guess. Tonight is Sunday evening. I'll give you until 5 p.m. GMT on Monday to see if you can work it out.... Would you like a clue? Hmmm. OK: well we have 10 million members around the world. Does that help?
So there you go: two puzzles for you:
1. When did the BBC start teaching English on the World Service?
2. Who or what was 100 years old on Friday?
