Liceo Scientifico “G. Spano”, Sassari – 27 May 2008
“I’d highly recommend the roadshow to all school grades because one is never too young or too old to learn how to have fun learning a foreign language. And when you are having fun you won’t feel the pressure of doing an assignment.
The T.I.E. roadshow in Sassari was terrific (“a blast” in John Travolta’s words from Grease). Students and teachers alike got involved and learnt some important tips while singing at the top of their voices.
I particularly appreciated the way Fergal got the students to remember new vocabulary by simply focusing on their rhymes. And the amazing thing is that my students could recall those words days after the show. So this means they have learnt them.
Summing up: amazing show, charming host, gripping songs and catchy tunes.
We’d do it over and over again!” Prof.ssa Antonella Porcu
Istituto Scolastico Statale “C.Amoretti”, Imperia – 14 May 2008

Liceo Linguistico “Mamiani”, Pesaro – 9 May 2008
“It was great experience because we could understand the words of some songs we already knew. Fergal was really good.”
“He made us enjoy ourselves. He was able to choose songs we knew, so this means he understands us. We also learnt a lot of things about pronunciation, but it wasn’t hard because we were having fun at the same time.”
“The show was really original and great fun. I knew that singing was useful to learn English, but now I realize it’s true. I really enjoyed working as part of a team and Fergal was good at making us sing together.”
“I think it is the best show of the year.”
Liceo “Regina Margherita”, Salerno – 29 April 2008
“It was a very exciting experience, I will do it again if possible, so I thank my teacher!” Oriana 2L

Don’t miss the chance of having the Tune into English Roadshow at your school!
You’ll see the exceptional Fergal involving your students in very motivating, interesting and funny activities for two unforgettable hours.
You’ll see your students enjoying themselves while learning and improving their English. They’ll rhyme, match, guess, repeat, learn new words, improve their spelling, pronunciation and grammar while smiling, laughing, singing and dancing. They’ll thank you for this unique opportunity. They’ll keep humming the songs and asking when Fergal is coming back to school for days!
You’ll be given a fresh insight into your teaching approaches and techniques. You’ll have a very good time yourself, singing and dancing together with your colleagues and students.
At the end of two intense hours we were all asking for more!
Thank you once again, Fergal!”

L.Scientifico I.S.I.S. “Einaudi”, Dalmine (BG) – 1 and 2 February 2008
“Toall colleagues and students interested in…. “What’s Fergal’s show?”
It’s a show, a great show which is made so great by its strange floyd named Fergal.
The show is motivating, stimulating and helps people to share English language and music.
The ingredients might be obvious but the mixture is well balanced: self-confident and shy people (teachers and students) find themselves involved in something unusual which makes the English language taste brighter or …less bitter.
Foreign languages are made of sounds, colours, tastes, moods and that’s what Fergal tries to teach us.
Nearly 400 of our students were involved in the experience on February 1st and 2nd 2008.
Now the problem for us is…. “how will we manage the remaining amount of students for a new show?”, because others have been very stimulated by the boys and girls who have told them about Fergal’s performance.
That’s Fergal fever!
I hope all site visitors will book Tune Into English and enjoy the Roadshow. It is really worth while!
Thanks Fergal, I wish you you could always turn it on again!”
