Studying Italian A level as mature student. Chose Mafia as oral topic (not on syllabus) Obscure important anti-mafia judge called Giovanni Falcone. Found book in Italian on Falcone in Italian specialist bookshop. Struggled to read/understand. At top of my street, people sometimes dump rubbish by railway line, say book dumped, "F a l c o n ", one month before exam. assumed about falconry/birds, but on Falcone, in English, tremendous exam help and very improbable unlikely, amazing,very helpful coincidence.
