This seminar will be about the importance and necessity of learning a second language. It will be in our school conference room for students,teachers,headmasters maybe for local directors of our city. I want to prepare something enjoyable and comic. I want them to smile and enjoy while I am lecturing.

Mona - That sounds like fun, but it also seems really open ended, "the importance and necessity of learning a second language". What are some of the ideas or points you want to incorporate into the presentation? What is the importance of learning a foreign language for your group? What age are the students and how long is the presentation?

Knowing some of that will help us to give you some suggestions.

Build up! Be positive! Teach hard!

Hi Mona
The Barking Mouse is a good story to tell. I think you can find it on youtube. Here is how one teacher used it for Parents' night:
and the illustrations

this video isn't about second languages, but delivers a convincing message on the dangers of rote memorization:
Do Flowers Fly. You can find this on youtube, too.
