This week we’re going to delve into the world of children’s entertainment and education with my favourite, Sesame Street. Sesame Street is a TV program created by a non-profit organization (NPO) called Children’s Television Workshop and is famous for such characters as Elmo, Bert & Ernie and Big Bird. The characters can be seen at Universal Studios (USJ) in Osaka and all over Japan on various products, ranging from notebooks to backpacks and even dishes. One of my favourite features of the program is the vocabulary section, where famous guest stars will teach Elmo or other characters a new word. Watch the actions of the actors carefully, as they are helpful in understanding the meaning of the word. I’ll post 3 for you, but of course I would encourage you to watch as many as you can, as often as you can. Sesame Street’s You Tube account has almost 1300 videos, all of which are short, simple and fun. Enjoy!
