speaking english

So, I told my friends that I sometimes call home at lunch, and that if any of them wanted to speak english, they should come with me, and I would have them talk to one of my friends. Well, they were all too scared, but today, I dragged a couple classmates to a phone, and they talked. Not all of them wanted to talk, so they played rock-paper-scissors, and the loser talked first. Bad at english my ass. ok, well, so maybe they arent perfect, but I would say (and Im sure Sarah S. would too) that they english is pretty decent. The first kid was pretty decent, and then after that, I made teh other 4 of them talk. It was mostly short introductions, and somevery basic questions, but it was good practice for them. Afterwords, they all said it was fun and interesting. i did something right!!!! I think that from now on, about once a week, I will take the kids down to the phone, and have them practice with my friends. it was fun.

Who's paying your phone bills!? (just kidding.) Yeah, that's a cute idea, it makes the whole reason to learn a language so much more concrete. I wonder whether these kids would do so well speaking English face-to-face with American kids? Can you get them to do it with you? Does talking over the phone reduce the embarrassment factor?

love,

da

Dear Peter,

What a good idea. And how nice to hear you saw so casually, "my four friends..."

love you,

mom (p.s. I cycled today, and Coach Christine says Hello. She loved your Lincoln Times article.)
