English Showcase IV

My Fair Lady is a 1964 musical film based upon Bernard Shaw´s book, Pygmalion.The story is about a flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, who takes speech lessons from Professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, in order that she may pass as a proper lady.

As you all recall, the topic Cinema was studied this term during class.

The main purpose of the film is to demonstrate the importance of learning English, but with special emphasis on the significance of “proper English”. This is shown throughout the film by how characters speak English differently. Also relevant is the Ascot Race as we also learned about it in Sports.

The film was directed by George Cukor starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison. It won 8 Academy Awards in 1965.

The second showcase is just to remember Christmas is coming.

Don´t forget the Chritmas Spirit!
