Telling a Story. Using Past Tenses


When you have to describe an event or tell something curious which happened in the past, you should use past tenses. The most common of these is the past simple. Two other tenses, past continuous and the past perfect can help us to say what we want more efficiently. However, it should be remembered that almost any story can be told using the past simple.

Flags of the World and their Stories


Many people could tell you what the stars and stripes represent on the flag of the USA, or why the Canadian flag is emblazoned with a maple leaf. But most of these people could not be as confident in clarifying the reasons for the unusual shape of the Nepalese flag and would struggle to explain the reasons behind the curious presence of an AK-47 on the flag of Mozambique.
There is huge variety in the colours and designs of national flags, but there is much more to consider than first meets the eye. A flag is not simply designed to look good flying in the wind, but often symbolises the culture, history and ideals of a nation. Just The Flight has explored the stories behind some of the world’s most interesting and recognisable national flags in this fascinating infographic.

A Good Idea...
