Koreans Going After English

Some South Korean parents are so motivated to get their kids into English classes that they are willing to split up their families to do it -- For English Studies, Koreans Say Goodbye to Dad. That's just very sad. The Korean government has stated that it will start addressing the problem by hiring more English teachers. I also didn't know that there are now more than 103,000 South Korean students in the United States -- the highest population of foreign students in the country.

And they do Chinese with a ferver. I have come upon Korean in Beijing that speaks better Chinese than myself.

Amazing. Should be an interesting future in East Asia with all this going on.
