A report (by Altan 3c)
From the 8th to the 13th of May, five English speaking teachers from different countries came here to Austria just to teach us another language by talking, playing, singing, and acting with us.
Hanna from London, Louise from Australia, Andy from the USA and James and Danny from England taught all pupils of the third class for one week.
In the first three lessons they played action-games with us. In the fourth lesson we did some sports and then we read and talked about different countries. For the games they divided the classes into two groups, which had to score points for their teams with right answers.
Every team had to act out a sketch for the performance on Friday. The parents were warmly welcome. After the show there was a big good-bye. It was a really funny week and hopefully we students learned a bit more English. ;)
What the pupils wrote:
This week was the best week of the school year. But it was too short. Thanks for this fantastic week! (Larissa)
The teacher was so nice and he made good jokes. He explained everything so that I could understand all he said. (Öznur)
The week was awesome. I liked to speak so much English. (Nadine)
My favourite song was “Get loose” and the Bubble-gum-song is so funny. I loved it so much. Dancing with James was the best thing ever. We all miss him. He can rap, sing popular songs and he can dance so funniliy. (Jona)
We played Frisbee, Baseball, Gaelic and Australian Football! The virtual classroom is a wicked good idea, because we can chat with the ABCi-team then. (Liam)
I think that the second class can look forward to this great week. (Valerius )
I liked all sports, most of all baseball. I loved all games , especially the whispering- game, Rockstar & Toaster, and “I take…with me” (Raffael)
The sketch in the end was cool, because we could show it to our parents and they were happy. We gave the teachers a present and a shower of confetti - that was so cool! (Andy )
The English week was brilliant. The best thing about it was to hear the teachers speak English. If I had the chance, I would make an English week again. I miss Andy, Louise and all the other teachers so much. (Madita )
What I liked best was the sketch, because I love acting and changing into another person. I hope the teachers will visit us one day. I miss them. (Silvija)
I liked to play Frisbee, because then I could run a lot. (Adam)
I liked the sketch, because we made it up by ourselves. And I think the virtual classroom is a good idea. (Hanna)
I liked our teacher, because he is a good entertainer and we had so much fun. I liked the guessing games, the whispering game, the Maths and the Geography quiz. (Kumsal)
I think all games were great , but the best one was Snakes & Ladders. I will use the virtual classroom for learning. (Lukas)
Our teacher helped everyone and explained the words really well . (Klara )
