Hello,
The mood pictures are a nice idea.I have a few questions about the second video:
Is Brita suggesting that students can't read at 0.27?
 
"(I know Spanish and I love it), but they can't do consonants" 0.37 - really?
 
Also, as a native English speaker, I have never once rolled the 'r' in the word 'there' as she mentions in the same video at 0.57.
 
Perhaps I have misunderstood, would anyone be able to explain what she means?
Many thanks,
G
