Introduction

add videos of really good impersonators (Trevor Noah, guy doing multiple languages in gibberish); why is this compelling/useful?

ways of knowing; what does it mean to "know" your target language?

Antonio Banderas demo: step into character based on procedural knowledge, rather than translation

Demonstrate skillful AND non skillful examples (solicit examples from students)
