Overall though, the whole Pirate thing escapes me.
So why a post about "Talk Like a Pirate Day" then? Because of my brother. He is the director of a school in Tokyo, Japan that teaches kids how to speak English... (he's actually much more than that, and I would love to direct everyone to his blog and his projects, but he doesn't know about this and I want to keep it that way). He's always looking for fun ways to get the kids singing and moving around while he teaches. Today on his blog he posted this cool video as part of a guide for other teachers looking to incorporate "Talk Like a Pirate Day" into THEIR classrooms... once you get past the very beginning it's pretty cool!
Little crush on one of the pirates in the vid... can you guess which one?
