Oh god, I understand this. Last week I showed Avatar the Last Airbender to my (tiny) ESL class. The two older kids were silent, unless they really didn’t understand something. The six- and the barely-seven-year-old, though…
“Who’s he?” (“Zuko.”)
“What’s that on his face?” (“A scar.”)
“Who’s that?” (“It’s still Zuko.”)
“Is that a boat? Is he going on the boat?” (Zuko is getting on the boat, but he can’t see because he’s twisted round in his seat to speak to me)
“Who’s that person with the scar?” (“GOD FUCKING DAMMIT”)
It’s fascinating to see the behaviour of children change so clearly between age groups, but Jesus Christ there’s days I think my head might come off.
Hope you’re talking about the animation D:
Otherwise, poor kids.
My niece is like that except its much more “Watch this part! This part is sooo funny! Look at this person! See this part now!” Just DAMMIT CHILD I SEE IT!
We have a similar problem. My son asks what’s going on as they’re explaining what happened. So I don’5 have a clue half the time either.
