Funny sketches in English
 
Hello dear teachers,

I would like to ask you whether you can tell me about any nice, funny and easy to understand sketches in English. I give private classes to some children aged 10 to 12 who are practically bilingual. Last year I watched with them all the episodes of Mr Bean which they loved. The sketches helped me catch their attention and make them talk about what they saw, about some English customs, and the character of Mr Bean that they adore. The problem is I ran out of Mr Bean episodes, the new school year is approaching and I have no ideas what videos show them this year. Last year I also showed them some parts of Jaywalking to make them laugh and show them how many things they know at the end of the school year. Could you give me some ideas of what to show them this year? I was thinking of Monty Python but it might be too difficult for them. Anything as funny as Mr Bean and easily understandable? Thanks in advance, Ela

Thank you, savvinka. I was thinking about some videos, though. So as to watch them with my young students, laugh and then talk about them. I am thinking now about Monty Python sketches. But still not sure whether it will appeal to them. They may be too young for Monty Python. Maybe it ´s too sophisticated for them. Any ideas for some funny and short videos?
