Waiting for the show to start
Thursday, March 25, 2010
Yesterday Samuel's elementary school had a Spettacolo (show/program) starring the first and second grades. These programs always make us laugh. The second grade performed a skit and the first grade did a dance. And both classes also demonstrated their English skills. I was amused as you will be when watching the video of the kids speaking English. A quick glance around the room during the performance and I caught several eyes from parents looking to see what our reaction was. Of course, the parents had no idea what their kids were saying. And come to think of it even I had to strain to understand what they were saying with their Italian-English accents. Samuel goes along with the poor pronunciation, so you have to ask him to speak it in American-English and then he says it right.
