You do not know if your students would like to speak a foreign language or not. Let them make their own puppets and try. You will be amazed at the ability of children to use the language and with the joy they amuse themselves with it.

If you happen to be in São Paulo and likes Shakespeare, you can’t miss ‘The Clowns of Shakespeare performing Sua Incelença (Your Majesty) – Ricardo III. See how I and my students enjoyed them and visit the group’s site on http://www.clowns.com.br/site2011/index.php, the soundtrack brings Luiz Gonzaga, surely one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of all time, together with Queen and Supertramp. I wish you could check it out.

If you like storytelling, you must visit Canterbury. The city is famous for the Canterbury Tales and it is amazing visiting the theatre where small groups move into different scenarios to listen to them. In the picture I am imitating the powerful ‘Wife of Bath’, one of the tales you can learn more about on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wife_of_Bath’s_Tale and visit also the site http://www.canterburytales.org.uk/home.htm
Castles, the Cathedral of St Thomas, the boat trips and the very streets of Canterbury make you feel yourself in medieval times.

William Shakespeare, without saying a word, gives a quick run through of all his plays in a very special audition. Fantastic.
