“Hi Fergal!
Thank you for being at out school this morning! I’ve learnt the students really enjoyed the show  and they didn’t want to leave!
My colleagues Were enthusiastic and so I hope to see you in the next school year!
Thanks again!”
Prof.ssa Simonetta Vidoni

“Dear Fergal,
Your show is great and you’re an excellent showman. You’re able to entertain 150 little rascals for two hours and make them have a lot of fun. A hero!
I enjoyed  your show and having fun like my students. If you want to show the picture of a very happy teacher you can put it the photos on your Facebook page ( if my ugliness doesn’t scare anybody ).
It surprised me to see that most students knew the lyrics of the songs you presented and sang them. You know very well their tastes!
I hope to see you again next year and to keep in touch.
P.S. The Irish sono forti!”
Prof.ssa Andreina Dolcet

“Hi Fergal, thank YOU for coming here. Most of the students were happy and they want you back. Here are some adjectives that they told me to write to you:

simpatico, divertente, coinvolgente, interessante, stupido in senso positivo (eheheheheheehehhh), comprensivo, capace di capire NOI ragazzi, ottimo gusto musicale (ahahahahahahahah)

Moreover, canta bene e balla bene, lo rifarei 1000 volte (commento di un compagno… ‘be’ 1000, dai non esagerare… !!!!), un approccio diverso all’inglese, profe, perché non fa così anche lei, come Fergal! (mio commento: ‘sono stonata!, ma ballo bene’ 😉 )

It was our first experience with the Roadshow and I feel there will be a great outflow of energy from it. The next morning I found my students were very reactive and they still are. I really appreciate your creativity in intertwisting vocabulary and grammar exercises with songtexts and I find the show very involving for students. You handled the difficult students very effectively.”  Prof.ssa Valeria Taddei

Until next time…”  Prof.ssa Maria Giovanna Luminati
