"When You Wish Upon A Star" is a song written for adaptation of Walt Disney's Pinocchio.
The original version was sung by Cliff Edwards in the character of Jiminy Cricket.
This song has since become the representative song of The Walt Disney Company. 

And the song won the 1940 Academy Award for Best Original Song, It was also the first Disney song to win an Oscar.



The lyrics of this song tell the message very the U.S.A. like and the Disney movie like,

"If you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true."



Today's discussion theme was "If we were a parent and had children...".


We did group discussion about
"Would you be a protective parent ?"
"Would you spoil your children ?"
"Would you allow your children to travel by themselves ?"
"What would you allow your children to do and what wouldn't you ?"
"Would you teach your children to believe in magic / miracles ?"

Our discussion also became deeply today!

The next is June 7.
See YOU Next time !

"Cheek to Cheek" is a song written for the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers movie Top Hat.
In the movie, Astaire sings the song to Rogers as they dance. The song was nominated for the Best Song Academy Award for 1936.


The lyrics of this song reflect the contents which sang for a woman from a man,
for example "To dance with you is enjoy twice as much as the river fishing" , "To dance with you is thrill twice as much as mountain climbing".


Pronunciation to become the key to this song is pronunciation of "heaven", "dance", "thrill" and the sound of "r" of "arm" and "charm"., Yuko-san adviced. 



Today's discussion theme was "the image when we hear "Cheek to Cheek" ".


We did group discussion about
"What words / images come to our mind when we hear "Cheek to Cheek" "
"Discribe the appearance/ the character of the person we would like to go out with ?"
"What are some popular places to go on a date ?"
"What would we like to go on a date ?"
"What do we think of public displays of affection ?"

Our discussion also became lively today!

The next is May 10.
See YOU Next time !
