Cultural and background resources

Part of the aim of any language course is to introduce learners to the culture of those who speak the language whether through exploiting events which are common to that culture, or events where different cultures come together.

Here is a collection of resources which can support this aim.  Some resources will need to be up-dated  / edited annually to make them relevant.
