Le Je est un Autre

Choice of content, again, is the spark that ignites or douses stories. Check out Double Je by Christophe Willem –  on YouTube.

You know what? The kids can get this. Easy for them because half of them ARE this video – they live it daily. We’ll spend a week on this song. Translation, PQA, extended PQA, listen to it, lipsync it, spin stories from the lyrics. Luckily not objectionable subject matter.

For those who believe that the language in this song is too fast and therefore not understandable by first year students, I say hooey. We learn languages because we are interested in what they mean, not because people start out speaking slowly to us.
