Chickens Are Mine Became The Cold Baby-This Is Conversation Corps

Conversation Corps logoThe video embedded in this Blog post is by the great Italian actor, Adriano Celentano.  Also a song writer and singer, Celentano wrote this song entirely in gibberish to show English speakers what English sounds like to non-English speakers.

As a member of the Conversation Corps, you are called upon to speak "conversational" English and we thought you would enjoy hearing what that sounds like to your "students."

GeoVisions does provide our own text, "A Tutor's Guide: Teaching English To Families And Children."  We also provide an online source to provide English flash cards and worksheets.  And let's not forget a 24/7 email hot line for personalized assistance and ideas.

Originally, this video did not contain the subtitles, but after searching around we found the official subtitles for you and we think they help make the point even further.  So enjoy the video and remember, "My eyes smile senseless and we got some growing diesel, alright?"
