| Ghostbusters useful in classrooms!
I use to love this show as a child. It's not a rip off from the movie as i twas already mentioned many times. I had a really hard time getting a DVD and now I finally have it. I'm a teacher at a elementary school and I teach English as a foregin language. Guess what - this cartoon is a perfect tool for that. The language and the plot are simple enough for kids to follow it even without listening to the words, so the language sort of slips into their conscience. It's good for basic vocabulary and listening comprehension. The cartoon is also not violent (not really) and funny enough with a strong moral point at the end. So it's perfect for a classroom. At first I was afraid the children would hate it, because the plots are simplistc and the are quite a few goof-ups, but children up to the age of 10 simply loved it and learned quite a few things. We could always start a discussion about the moral of the story (told at the end), revize the new words they've learned and simply reenact some scenes (for pure fun and relaxation). This made me think about this cartoon in a whole new light. It's not just a trip down the memory lane, but it's also a useful tool for foregin language teaching (who would have guessed :)
