One of the many events being organised today is a 24 hour global Dickens reading marathon which has been organised by the British Council across 24 countries from Albania to China, Pakistan to Russia.
Reading extracts from Dickens's books is probably one of the best ways to celebrate such an anniversary.
If you check the British Council twitter, you will see the links to the many videos of people from different countries contributing to this reading marathon. I would like to embed here for you the video of the girl who represents Albania.

Have you seen any of the many films based on his books?
Or perhaps you have read a graded reader of one of his books in your English classes in previous years.
TELL US ABOUT IT!!
