On Monday, the team went to visit a school in Prague. We went to give a presentation in Wales, and to help the students practice English. It reminded me strongly of the time when four native German speakers came to my German class when I was 15. We sat and stared at them and spoke as little as possible. I’m glad I’m not in junior high or high school any more.
After visiting the classes, we attended an English club at the same school. One of the students that we had met earlier came running in, and said that they had two free tickets to a singing competition, and did any of us want to come? I said yes and so did Kristin.
So that evening, armed with small Czech phrase book, Kristin and I caught the metro to meet Misha and her family. It turned out to be our best evening in Prague! We had so much fun with Misha and her family, trying to say things in Czech and English, and making each other laugh because we had no idea what was being said!
The competition was superb as well, rather like American Idol or X-Factor. I have now been on national television in two countries. That’s just weird. In the song clip, we’re standing up on the right-hand side in some of the frames. It was fun being a teenage fan-girl for one night!
