You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
First create a table to hold the various languages in which films can be made:
The table contains two fields: one numeric, one text.
Append records from the file called Languages.xlsx in the folder above into your table to get a table of languages:
The first few languages in the table. Trivia question: which is the highest-grossing foreign language film of all time?

Close all of your tables down, saving any layout changes that you've made.
