INTRODUCING EACH OTHER in a students' party! By Iván Argente, Jaime Sobrino and Alejandro Sospedra.
The 15th day of last October everyone in the English lesson became unknown for everybody--Well, not really. It was just a speaking activity...--. Then, we had to learn things about other people to be able to work as a group!
Yes, no one had ever seen anyone of that class. What should we do? Firstly, start talking to other people profanely— I mean, without spirituous drinks—. What did we really do? We had a party.
Of course, we couldn’t escape from school. Then, we imagined we were having a party:
(I added some emoticons to decorate the text)
JAIME: Hi, I am James Nephew.
IVÁN: Hey, my name is Silver, Ivan Silver. What is your name? (to Alex)
ALEX: Alex. I am sixteen. Are you sixteen too?
I: Where do you live, Alex?
A: Here, in Valencia, in front of the Turia.
I: And you, James?
J: I live in Valencia too, down the ‘Pont de fusta’.
A: Wow, what an interesting place to live!
J: Yes, but I am living there temporarily: my family and I are moving to another house.
I: I do not sorry for you then. Your story is not as interesting as I though.
I: Well, I live with my mother and my little sister.
A: Ah, I am only child. What about you? (to Jaime)
J: I do not. I have got a 21-year-old sister.
I: Oh, and I go to Comenius School. Where are you studying?
J: I am studying in Komensky School.
A: I go to Komenius Jean School. I am studying Biology, Chemistry and Physics, but till now I have not decided what to do in the future.
J: So do I.
I: Wow, what a scientist group. I am not like that: I am fancy about History, Geography and Latin.
I: Why boring?
A: I agree with Nephew. It is a bit boring. But I respect that…
A: No, I was going to say that I respect that you like learning boring things.
J: Leave him, Alex. There's no point in explaining.
A: Yeah, that is true.
J: «Stuff, stuff, stuff…Frozen hearts, psychopaths, psychopaths…In the friiidge I haave…my bra-a-a-a-ai-aiiin…tururuuu…» Yeah.
(IVAN and ALEX are staring at him, surprised by the situation)
A: Excuse me, but I am a bit surprised by the situation… (I told you they were!)
I: I am not surprised by this: I am shocked by this! Did you hear the lyrics!!??
A: I’d prefer not to have heard them…Could I join in your fantastic plan now? I’m fairly afraid of him…
(J: «Climb, crawl, jump oover…throw, run, keep-it-opeen»…)
I: Oh, no! You lost your opportunity, man!
A: My name is Alex!
I: The point is that I was not sorry for him before; consequently, I am not going to be sorry for you either!
J: «Furious with the world, pum-pum, tired of wa-a-ays…PUM-PUM».
(Both ALEX and IVAN open even more their eyes and, suddenly, run away from the party. JAMES stays up there.)
J: «Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your attention, and for coming to another class of ‘Short course about how to frighten away annoying people in a party’»…Hah, hah…I am good, veery, very good…Yeah.
