We’ve always enjoyed making funny videos with Dwane Thomas. He has a great sense of humor, and we have enjoyed poking fun at his own classes or whichever class we are about to launch. Here are three of our favorites – we hope you and your kids enjoy them, too!
April 2013 (?) – Visual Klingon
This was one of our first April Fools videos. One of the producers had spent hundreds of hours watching Star Trek, and recalled that Klingon was an actual language…
April 2015 – Homeschool Made Difficult?
We created this video to coincide with the launch of our excellent series by Carole Joy Seid Homeschool Made Simple.
April 2016 – Futurity
For those of you old enough to remember when Flash Gordon came out in theaters (1980), you’ll appreciate this spoof. This was in response to our launch of Dave Raymond’s second series on modern world history: Modernity.
April 2020 – Dwane’s Next Class?
This one was a bit of a mashup: we took an old April Fools video (from 2014!) and re-worked it to talk about the upcoming launch of Volume 2 of Word Up! The Vocab Show as well as the unexpected quarantine from the Corona virus. We were surprised (and pleased) when so many people wanted the actual classes!
We always hope you and your family laugh as much watching them as we did making them… tune in next year to see a bit more foolishness.
Oh…and here are some of Dwane’s real classes. That is, if you actually want to learn something!
