Sarah loves being at Holmes with Sherlock

Sarah Hanesch has been teaching at City Langauge School for over three years. In the latest of our Teacher Recommends Series we chat with the popular teacher about her favourite TV watches and why she thinks students might like them.

I like any Whodunnit series basically and Sherlock Holmes is one of my favourites. I like this one because, well, Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman, right? Need I say more? Each episode is intriguing, fast-paced, full of plot twists, and, in general, simply entertaining.

Each series has one main storyline, but each episode usually deals with one particular case. Even though I don\’t necessarily believe in all of it, I find the idea of \”inductive reasoning\” or \”scientific-deductive reasoning \”very entertaining and interesting.  

I have recently watched a lot of John Oliver\’s show Last Week Tonight and I\’m enjoying that too. First things first, don\’t take everything too seriously. He doesn\’t. It\’s interesting and informative thanks to relevant topics with a splash of sarcasm & a pinch of \”salty humour\”. It\’s entertaining & you\’ll definitely learn a thing or two. From a linguistic point of view, it\’s great for wordplays, metaphors, idiomatic language & slang in general. And sometimes, all we need is a good laugh that makes you cringe a little on the inside.
