“I think nobody like the children to value the work and the effectiveness of teaching English with puppets, so I talk about the work of Ana Lorite through the mouths of my two children:

” I want Ana to always be my teacher “.

I have never seen children as excited about an activity as when they arrived home after having a class with her. It may seem excessively flattering, but it has made the combination of children-English and puppets have a winning result with the little ones and that learning the language for them is something charged with illusion and fantasy. “
