Scuola Media “G. P.Gaspari”, Latisana (UD) – 26 March 2009

“Congratulations, Fergal, you have devised a great way of enhancing MOTIVATION. The shows were definitely successful. The students really loved the show, and a lot of them asked me to invite you again this school year! Most of them realized it was a different learning experience, something unique in their school life.” Prof.ssa Monica Bergamo

“Thank you for giving us and our students some hours of learning with fun! The comments were enthusiastic.
The girls in the third class especially enjoyed the songs, and many said that they were happy because you spoke slowly and clearly, so that they could understand, and that you led them gradually into the activities. In the second class the boys were especially satisfied for being able to get directly involved too!
It was really a very nice and useful experience for them and for us.”
Prof.ssa Elena Bonino

Scuola Media, Villa Santina (UD) – 27 November 2008

Troppo forte! Mi sono divertita tantissimo e penso che vado sul sito per cantare le canzoni. Questo è un bellissimo modo per imparare l’inglese! Sofia

E’ stata un’esperienza interessante perchè il dj ci ha stupiti, dato che , invece di farci scatenare con musiche e luci da discoteca, è andato con calma mostrandoci un nuovo modo di apprendere l’inglese ascoltando delle canzoni. Lo spettacolo mi è piaciuto. L’ho giudicato innovativo. Eric

Grazie dj Fergal. Abbiamo trascorso due ore bellissime. L’unica cosa che non mi è piaciuta è quando hai detto che la squadra più forte d’Italia è il Napoli. Forza Juve! Manuel

The students of VA

Scuola Media “Verga”, Niscemi (CL) – 31 October 2008

“Although I am the director of a State Junior High School in Sicily, I began my career as an English teacher. The heart of the teacher is still living inside me, the enthusiasm of watching so many students all at once together, happy to stay at school. This is what happened to my students with Tune Into English. 120 students learning English through this interactive lesson using songs. The teenagers felt at ease with Fergal, he used famous and modern songs to achieve his goal of improving their English, building up a new lexical world through verbs and adjectives with a perfect rhythm. In addition Fergal used the strategies of contrastive analysis among words or analogies, to help the students to fix the sounds and the musicality of language. He is a D.J. of English because he treats the language as if it were a mixer, he passed from one word to another as a D.J. does from one song to another.
And finally the importance of the body at the end, letting them dance to give a memory of the event with all their energy, to let the language live inside them in a teaching sensitive method that they never want to finish.
In fact, at the end, nobody wanted to go home and the school became a party – this means I’ve partly achieved my goal of seeing my students eager to spend their time at school, a place of enjoyment and not a passive torture prison.” Preside Antonella Panarello
