SERIES - DOWNTON ABBEY

Hi everybody !

I just watched the season 1 of Downton Abbey (I heard from this serie thanks to my father few month ago, he really wanted me to watch it, so, better late than never, I did it !)

The series begins in the year 1912.
Downton Abbey is the name of a large estate where a family live. All the plot is built around the life of this british family, the Crawley family.

The context of this season 1 is interesting, it is the declaration of the First World War, and that creates a special but addictive atmosphere.
The main issue is around who will inherit Downton Abbey after the current Lord Robert Crawley, and the second storyline is to find a suitable husband for the Lady Mary Crawley.

I really recommend this series. You have the opportunity to follow a British family in its daily live during the First World War. You learn a lot about history, about the British culture, about its custom, about politics. It is impressive how realistic this series can be.

Beyond the history, it is a perfect opportunity to hear some beautiful english.

Hope making you want to watch this program Wink
