Anyone whose DC is studying AS English language?
They might enjoy watching these videos for the paper 2:

Video seminar David and Ben Crystal : Dealing with Accents

It is a seminar which is far from being boring. :D It is rather fascinating and full of humour! :D

I was not aware that words such as 'loot', 'pyjamas', 'shampoo' and 'thug' have an Indian origin.
I do not know enough the A level specification at AS and A2 to say if this is in direct link with the qualification, but I find this article very interesting for those fascinated with the English language; hence my desire to share it:
