2.en.4 . The Love of the Three Oranges.

Thanks to Bernat’s skills as a story teller and getting inspiration from Majorcan popular stories, Rondalles, in English lessons we tried to  re-tell one of them  making a short sketch ” The love of the three oranges” . We only had one day to prepare it, but the result was great and we had fun, so we might  repeat it again in a more professional way. What do you think? I feel there are good actors and actresses in 1st Year ESO E and your ability to improvise and your imagination to adapt the story was also excellent. Finally, the most important thing was that group work and cooperation   functioned.

Thanks to Pep Toni’s journalist skills, we can have a look at the recording of part of the sketch. The narrators have lost their heads during the process, but it was just the first time we did it anyway!
