English talk carried out by one man, Rupert (from Firewalk Theatre), at school on January 9th, 2013.
There was quite a big difference in the students’ opinions: 3rd year students didn’t like it in general, they thought it was boring and didn’t follow it properly. (Perhaps it’s due to their lower level in English). 4th year students, on the contrary, had a better overall impression: in general they followed and liked it, they thought it was funny and interesting.
These are some of their opinions.
The talk was interesting because he talked about the horoscope and the stars. In my opinion the horoscope and his instructions were very funny. In general I think it was a little bit boring but the songs were very fascinating and I had a good time.

The talk was about the cycles of the world. He spoke about the sun, the earth, the horoscope symbols. And he thinks that it was such a strange thing that people from different places think that the life will finish. I really liked the talk because I learnt new things, and although it was boring he sometimes did funny things and sang enjoyable songs. When the talk finished some people said that it was very boring, whereas I didn’t find it at all boring.

In my opinion the talk was interesting, but my seat wasn’t in a good situation, so I didn’t feel comfortable. The songs were well chosen and we got away from monotony. In addition, his pronunciation was quite good and if you didn’t know the meaning of a word, he’d tell it again but in Spanish. The rate of speech was very good too.
MARKEL GALLEGO (4.A)
The talk was about the earth, the horoscope and the relation between these two. The guy was really funny and the songs were well chosen for teenagers. I knew all the songs he sang, so I enjoyed it, and the talk was easy to understand because he talked very clear English.
