Between Us Links

"Between Us" is the name of unit 4 in my AS level students' book. It deals with relationships with people, either romantic, friendly or family-based. Given that 14th February is round the corner, we will set on the mood by reading about and listening to two amazing love stories.
READING: BBC News article Happy Ending for love letter pair. A true story.
LISTENINGYoutube video (with subtitles in Spanish) in which we are told how old Fred Stobaugh wrote such a sensitive letter to her wife, who had just passed away, that the moving words turned into the lyrics of the song "Oh Sweet Lorraine". Green Shoe studios were looking for a good songwriter. They definitely didn't get the singer out of Fred, but made the most out of his writing. Enjoy his story.
Here you are an alternative perspective of romantic love, or should I say romantic-free chemistry-based reality? THE SCIENCE OF ATTRACTION ;)
