This is for ELLEN, our resident Ukelele resident (how do you spell that word???). Enjoy. Much like the Hey Jude cover of another child star.

Hey, he's pretty good! I bet his daddy plays the ukulele : )

Do it yourself ukulele - come play naked! (No kidding, it's a trend ; ) )

Just spell it UKE David - easy, no worries : )

Ok, in case it slipped by anyone, there is a big language learning lesson here -- maybe if we could imitate how a new language sounds to our ears (like babies and kids do), it would help us learn it. What do you think about students mulling around cocktail party style, pretending to speak English? So socially unacceptable, but it's been bugging me that there's one step in language development that we're not allowed to do (or rather, only allowed to do once, with our mother tongue.) How come? Maybe it would help!

I laughed so hard the first time I saw this video... it is so bad. But why? Why is this such an obnoxious thing to do? I mean, come on, that is kind of what it sounds like...

Yes, that is a classic of "babble"....

Here is another cool Jason Mraz song - a duet. Great for language learning in class. Boys sing one part / Girls another....!
