Vidcast Script:

Intro: Hotch Potch English: The Mega Minute!

Hello, and welcome to Hotch Potch English - 'The Mega Minute'! And today, I'm talking to...

Sébastien: "Sébastien! Hello!"

And where are you from, Sébastien? Hi! 
Sébastien: "I'm from Le Mans, in France."

OK. You don't sound like you have a French accent.

Sébastien: "No, I'm half French, half English. I've lived in England for the last 23 years."

OK, and what are you doing here in France?

Sébastien: "I'm studying for a TEFL Certification."

OK, where are you doing that?

Sébastien: "I'm doing that in Tournan-sur-Brie."

OK, where is that?

Sébastien: "Ahh, that's just south-east of Paris."

OK, and where are you living at the moment? Are you living in Paris?

Sébastien: "No, I'm living on-site, in Tournan."

And what are you about to do in the next hour or so?

Sébastien: "I'm going to teach a English class!"

OK. Looking forward to it?

Sébastien: "Yes, indeed!"

What's the topic of your lesson today?

Sébastien: "Ahh, activities and interests that one can be passionate about. So 'passions' in a way."

Passions! OK, that's a nice subject! And have you, yourself, got an activity you're 'passionate' about?

Sébastien: "Yeah. I'm an aikido teacher, so I've been doing that for seven years and I'm very passionate about that."
Have you got a quick move you could show us? Which doesn't involve pain to me!

Sébastien: "Not really!

OK, all right, I'll leave it at that. I'll wish you luck, and you'll let us know how it goes!

Sébastien: "Thank you very much! Thank you, bye."

Good luck! Bye bye.
