English Drama "Momotaro: Peach Boy"

By experiencing Marbles Original semi-musical "Momotaro", you will discover how kids learn new expressions and vocabulary. The expressions they learned though English plays will never be forgotten, because they are so involved during this activity. Let's have fun making a musical together. You will be inspired!

Ways of making your lessons great fun!
