Back to School: First Day 2012

So tomorrow is the bog day: first day with students for the school year 2012-13... Butterflies in the stomach again and probably not only in my stomach but in most of my students´... lots of mixed feelings... So, let´s star with a smile (or two or three...)

The following video is from "The Cosby  Show" a popular sitcom which ran for eight seasons, from 1984 to 1992. In this episode the Huxtable children (Denise, Theo, Vanessa and Rudy)  face the first day of the new school year while their parents (Cliff and Claire) seem to be looking forward to getting the children finally out of the house. I guess lots of families will be living something like this tomorrow morning.

There are no subtitles in the audio but the situation is familiar to all of you so you shouldn´t have big problems to understand the episode: rely on what you see and what you expect to see. Read the following vocabulary first and make sure you understand it -this will help you follow the story: 

chase someone
fix breakfast
get someone dressed
the room where the clothes come to die
first warning
lunch box
to look good for the teachers
a senior student
