photoblog image I dance...I sing...

I dance...I sing...

You are never to old to learn new skills...and the kids' appreciation is a powerful incentive!

 

In the top picture I am singing "Where is Thumbkin", and it is clear that the Pointer brothers have just revealed themselves.

 

In the lower picture I am singing and dancing "Heidi...Heidi Ho...".

 

When you visit me, I can get you a Guest Gig at this venue...the pay is lousy, but the audience is generous!

Les enfants ont l'air de bien s'amuser et toi aussi.
Ray: Il y a beaucoup de rires dans nos cours, Martine.

I love the expressions of the children, they've never seen anything like you before..
Ray: Ha ha

I think it is clear this is not the usual form for classes, Chris.

You are a wonderful teacher - 'Heidi' is a German name. Nice pictures! The school looks quite better equipped than many of our schools.
Ray: I don't use much equipment, Philine....sometimes a ball, or a few flashcards, sometimes a bag of clothes or cooking utensils I bring from home...mostly I talk, sing and dance, and get the kids to use a few English words in those activities.
I can do a fair rendition of wind the bobbin up
Ray: I don't know that one, Bill...is it something useful that I could learn?

Are these children in some of punishment class? "If you don't behave yourself, you'll have to spent time with a Mad Australian!". I hope that despite this, the children turn out to be quite normal smile Good for you though; win-win.
Ray: I take my cues from the kids, Alan...if they are enjoying the activities and using a few English words then I give the class a positive rating.

Needless to say, I suppose, but an hour's class leaves me a little tired as I am a very active class leader. smile
I wouldn't mind betting yours is one of their favourite lessons of the week.
Ray: They get very good reviews, Brian.
They appear to be entranced by this eccentric Aussie, brilliant keep up the good work helping shape the nation.
Ray: Most 70 year old blokes they know are mainly sitting around and waiting to croak, Martin.
I guess you've found your true vocation, Ray smile
Ray: As with most males, Tom, my natural vocation is Applied Lurv...everything else is filling in the gaps between opportunities to practice it. smile

Teaching Conversational English is a filler I can easily recommend.
