English … As She Is Spoke! takes a highly entertaining look at the many strange ways our language is used and abused around the world – the confusions and distortions induced by jargon, the different meanings that the same words may have for people of different national backgrounds, the origins of the language and how it has developed through the centuries, and the opportunities for enhancing your pleasures in life through a new appreciation of the power of words.
This unique presentation is not a conventional lecture. Drawing on their international experience and highly acclaimed writing and performing talents, June and Donald create an intriguing environment in a series of discussions and satirical vignettes which dramatize with wit, humor and provocative insight the delightful vagaries of the Mother Tongue.
