'Britain's Most Natural Beauty',

Do you recognize this woman in the photo? No? She is an 18-year-old girl who has been found to have the most beautiful face in the world, or at least in Britain.
I’m not writing to show you guys her face, but to say that we can use this subject to teach our students. How? Well, maybe by presenting them the ‘superlative’ in English. I know this is not enough, but probably a good beginning.

All you have to do is show the video and ask them to talk about it and naturally you, teacher, may focus on ‘the most beautiful’ structure. Enjoy the moment and elicit from them if they could say more adjectives about the photo and then ask them to compare it to another famous people.

[Video] A schoolgirl from the British seaside town of Deal in Kent has been found to have the most scientifically beautiful face -- at least for the purposes of TV. 18 year old Florence Colgate, who works part time at a fish and chip shop, won a competition called 'Britain's Most Natural Beauty' after she sent a photograph of herself into a television programme, and then won a public vote.

Britain's Most Natural Beauty winner Florence Colgate: "Basically it was just about natural beauty and I had to send in a picture wearing no make-up and from that I got called to say I got through into the top 5 out of 8000 people."

Researchers who've studied attractiveness say that on a perfect face, the distance between pupils is 46 per cent of the width of the face from ear to ear - Florence's is 44 per cent. The distance between the eyes and mouth should be a third of the length of the face - Florence's is 32.8 per cent. A picture of Florence will soon be on show at 'Superdrug' stores throughout Britain and she says she hopes some offers of modelling work come from there. The 18-year-old says she's a confident and happy person which she believes shines through.
