Eddie Izzard – Learning French

*** Language alert – “f” word ***

Eddie Izzard is playing to an adult audience in America and the fact he can do this routine incorporating French tells us how much our world had changed and how important it is to become at least bilingual and not only do your brain a favour, but create a bit of cultural togetherness. He makes a good point about how school French can be quite useless in a real context. He does that really well . It is something I ensure I don’t do and the clip has reminded me to keep context and authenticity intact in my class. He has also shown that as a British comedian he is prepared to build on his linguistic knowledge to further develop his career but you can see how well it serves him even in an anglophone context.
