Revise Geography with a ukulele

20 2009

Alfred Williams has created a ukulele song which is in fact a revolutionary method to help you remember the shapes of the maps of several countries. If Geography was not your best subject, here is a chance to see it differently.

I am pretty certain that you have never thought about country maps in such a light.

The song is called Trinidad looks quite like Wales.

And here is another video by Alfred Williams, who is probably the fastest talker I have ever heard, for a good dose of British sense of humour.

    Yeah, I realised it was the Love Machine in Latin guy when I read Acilius’s post. Subscribed to him now so I won’t miss any more.

Language Fun

A place for language lovers where I’m trying to demonstrate how fun it is to learn other languages and how much of a culture you understand through its language.
