polandThis May, Macmillan Poland launched the series Global with a tour of several Polish cities. The people at Macmillan Poland have original and great ideas for teacher events, and the Global Festival was no exception. This year they invited Ben Crystal to join the show. Ben Crystal is the son of David Crystal and is a published author and experienced speaker himself. His latest book is called Shakespeare on Toast (, all about making the bard’s work more accessible to a modern public. Here he gives some extracts from the book in Warsaw.
