what is a classroom?

 

This Kaplan University commercial made me think! This idea is very similar to my philosophy on teaching. I try my hardest to “trick” my students into learning without even knowing it. We play with Barbies, we bake cakes, we talk about famous teen stars… anything! I do everything in my power to make them use English and have fun with it! If they can tell you that Barbie is mad at you for going on a date with Ken, they are using the language as well as having a good laugh (among other things of course). You don’t just learn in the classroom.

What do you think about this video? Does it inspire you to be more creative, or is it cliche?
