Twenty four thumbs up!!

This movie was viewed by a group of ESL elementary students (ages 9-12). We liked the flying ship because it was a magical thing. It was a good example of a folktale because it stokes the imagination. It also gives many details about how they travel. It was a little bit difficult to understand Robin Williams at times, but he did a good job overall with the story. The students thought it was boring at times because the pictures did not move too much. We also thought that it was interesting because we like to learn about folktales from other countries. The students' favorite part is when the fool kisses the princess. Overall, we enjoyed the magic and the music very much.
