Taeglish: learning English the physical way

This week’s English language in the news post comes from South Korea, where the latest education craze for kids is Taeglish – the combination of English lessons and the martial art of Taekwondo.

Kim Sung-hoon, creator of Taeglish, explains:

Taeglish is a combination of the words Taekwondo and English.
 Normal English education is boring with no fun and they do not understand why 
they have to learn it. After English is combined with Taekwondo practice,
 children can learn English with fun and in high spirits.

Watch the New Tang Dynasty Television channel’s video on YouTube to see classes in action.
