Japanese Learning English

One of the Clarion West 2006 found this. Gord lives and works in Korea, so has a real appreciation for English as a Second Language (ESL) and having both taught ESL and lived in China, I would say I thought I had seen a lot, too. But this is pretty damn weird.

Saw this several months ago--believe that it was BoingBoinged. Unfortunately, the weird one about salary men giving replies like "This is all your fault" isn't up any more, but it featured the same dancing girls.

Spare me MY life. Spare me My life.
Spare me My life. Spare me My life.

kick, turn, turn, turn.

Yes, we all know how valuable it is to know those phrases, since most of us get mugged on a weekly basis, here in America.

My wife and I did many recording sessions for English Language schools there, and I taught privately as well, but we never did anything even remotely as wacky as this.

OK, I admit to once teaching my students to say, "Hot, warm, cool, cold, butt cold."
