One hundred students from the 3rd and 4th grades of Prives-Charenzac Public College attended a drama show hosted by the Irish company “Pickles” in English on Thursday.
The play, entitled “Hot Spot” (“Hot Potato”), added pride to the comedy and acting, allowing all students to immerse themselves in this ridiculous story of life in a small Irish village saddened by the arrival of an alien.
A preliminary workshop
Students who follow the “Euro” option in Years 4 and 3 were also able to participate in a drama workshop in English at 1:30 pm before the play, where they practiced in English through several drama games presented by three English-speaking actors. Six more students climbed on the boards during the show.
To make up for the lack of travel
The scheme aims to make up for the absence of students for two years of the traditional UK trip offered each year to Class 4 students, which should be restarted as soon as possible.
All the students left happily and thanks to the talent and communication interest of the three actors of British, Canadian and Australian descent, they were able to see the scale of their English skills “in real life”.
Two hours of English in playful form
Anne-Frank College offers all volunteer students the opportunity to follow the “Euro” option, focusing on oral training in the form of two hours of additional English games or programs. Students can take advantage of the presence of an English-speaking assistant during this option.
