LeRock & Roll
This morning the students were excited to experience a Gregg LeRock concert for the first time. It was my first time, too! Gregg and DJ David were lively, very entertaining, expressive, and had us singing along to the tunes….en francais, of course! I still have the song C’est Bon in my head! Oh dear. He has been nominated for two JUNO awards and has performed his French language concerts to more than 500 000 students Canada-wide.
Gregg spoke entirely in French but sometimes whispered the meaning in English so we could figure out what he was saying. His songs and interactions with the students reinforce french vocabulary. He does a great job teaching his audience while at the same time, entertaining everyone with his fabulous electric guitar playing and singing groovy tunes.
Un spectacle superbe!
“My philosophy is that the best way to teach kids is to teach them without them knowing they’re being taught and to make French ‘cool’. And being able to do this while playing guitar behind your head always helps!” —Gregg LeRock
