Resse (Germany) The Langenhagener “Englishman” Andy Reed was recently guest in the primary school in Resse and entertained the third and fourth year children in his special way. “We could sometimes speak German but first of all I’ll try everything in English.” he said. One day he discovered his musical and comic talent and decided to combine these with his wide educational experience.

The result is an excellent mix of entertainment and playful learning of the English language. The pupils and teachers sit in a circle and everybody takes part. Jumping up, sitting down, forcing a grin and wobbling the bottom are just a few of the things with which everyone joins in. It was hardly surprising that after the initial slight embarrassment everyone had a lot of fun and the English expressions went straight into the bloodstream. Drawing on his experience as entertainer, singer, musician and teacher Andy showed a playful English world, that every child immediately sung, joined-in and understood…
For large and small groups. Generally schools plan shows to start every 60 minutes – show about 55 minuts, change of group 5 minutes. Many schools prefer a show per class. Six shows in one day are possible. The Show is generally acoustic. Andy provides all props and costumes and a music system for the dance music.
