Learning English, the Chinese Way!

Hundreds of Chinese youths gathered around a podium, chanting and yelling after a man on a bullhorn. Are they protesting something? No, they're learning English Chinese-style!

I followed a link on Youtube to get here. I made this movie and posted it on Youtube while I was teaching at HUSE earlier this year (2007). What struck me as most interesting was the fact that it was 6AM on a Sunday... I live in France and have two daughters in University, I teach English here to adults. I can't imagine a University student here in France getting out of bed at that hour (If they were even back from a night out by then) just to learn English.

The method works for some people, usually lower level learners who are shy. They feel more confident when shouting in a "pack" where they can't be singled out.

I am a believer in "any port in a storm" when it comes to getting the language message out.
