Teaching American culture to wonderful Czech kids

This is the format for the English class I taught in Prague during my TEFL course. There were eight 12-year olds, all wonderful and attentive. At the end of the class, one of the students gave me a portrait she had made of me (!) with colored pencils.

My Portrait

Truly, I look better in her drawing than I do in real life. Don’t you agree?

Here is what I taught.  

Words to the Song:

There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Chorus: There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Chorus: There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Chorus: There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Chorus: There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a hair on the wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a hair on the wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Chorus: There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a flea on the hair on the wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a flea on the hair on the wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Chorus: There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There’s a chigger on the flea on the hair on the wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a chigger on the flea on the hair on the wart on the frog on the knot on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,

Last chorus: (slow waay down) There’s a hole…

No, there ain’t no hole! We done filled up the hole in the bottom of the sea!
