Monday 2nd March 2020, BELL went live for the first time!
In light of recent events in Italy, BELL has decided to bring the classroom to those stuck at home – for free!
The news of schools closing across Italy was sudden and sad for all of us here at BELL! So we had to think of new ways to ensure that everyone still had the opportunity to learn and practise English!
What is BELL LIVE?
BELL LIVE is your opportunity to learn English with our trained, mother-tongue English teachers and actors FOR FREE!
Students and schools across Italy tuned in at 2:00pm for an interactive show on our YouTube Channel. We broadcasted our show live for hundreds of you and you responded with enthusiasm and fun!
We played interactive games where you had to write your answers into the live chat in order to win a prize! We had special guests – Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio and more! We started learning about possessive pronouns, clothing vocabulary and even animals! Some of our favourite songs were sung with you and we let you control what we do. Do you want a game or a song?
Our first BELL LIVE…
We had a very short period of time to bring all of our team together to produce our first BELL LIVE show! The team worked every day for 4 days to create our programme, with our IT Department bringing our resources together to make the show.
We played lots of games, sang some songs and you at home had to interact with us in the studio! It was great fun as we learnt what you enjoyed, what worked well on this new platform and what our possibilities were!
We had a few speed bumps and learnt a lot from our first show on Monday!
BELL LIVE 2.0
Having learnt from our first experience, we took all of your feedback and decided that – BIGGER IS BETTER!
We have created a new programme with much more audience interaction so that you at home can have even more fun!
This time there will be more zany characters, more audience interactions, more prizes and more activities! We’ve got:
GAMES AND PRIZES
QUESTION AND ANSWER
WHO’S THAT CELEBRITY?
NEW – PRESENTERS’ CHALLENGE
I watched your you tube live: great!! May be on Tuesday 10th some children and students of primary and middle school will watch the new lesson. I know it’s difficult, but It could be better if older students will not write stupid things in Italian. Thanks
Buongiorno Simonetta, ci stiamo applicando per moderare di più i commenti evitando i contenuti offensivi ed inappropriati. Spero le sia piaciuta anche la live del 10. Torniamo domani con una nuova puntata!
A presto, Andrea.
