What it the Anacreontic Song? Thanks for answering.
It is a song that was sung by the Anacreontic Society; an English club of Amateur musicians and poets in the 18th century. The Anacreontic Song is the song used by the United States of America as its National Anthem.
Great answer which makes huge sense to me as a language teacher! I think it still retains its meaning of an advantage because it's often applied to someone who has some extra talent or asset. Thanks for answering.
