Ten ten ten ten ten ten…

Fruency!

While waiting at the Ob-Gyn’s office, I spied a headline in our Straits Times – “Japan acts to raise fluency in English” – and was reminded of a YouTube video we saw ages ago of a Japanese game show game where participants were smacked (on their bottoms, no less) whenever they lost control and laughed at a clip of a man trying to read in English. The best part is when he tries to count to a hundred in English.

He gets to 19 with few problems.

  1. It's about time the Japanese do this – raise the level of fluency in English in their country. We exist in a global village and not in isolation. Especially with the Internet, English is still is the main language being used. Chinese being the other exception.
