Today is the day of my first English/Theatre class. It’s for 30 kids aged 6 to 12. How the fuck is it going to work? Good question. Soemthing i’ve learned in living here inItaly is that Italians speak on average 0% English. Maybe “Bye-bye” is the standard and entirety of their english. How they’re going to learn English in a group of thirty I don’t know. I can’t think much will get accomplished. On the other hand theatre wise me and my coleader plus 30 kids equals (this is a guess) close to 5% productivity theatre wise.
In other news I’ve worked with kids before of varying ages. The developmental similarities between a six year old and a twelve year old are not great. Hmmm. I think we’ll dance alot.
We danced alot.
