“No School Fridays” now an English lesson for Chinese students


by Larry Geller

When we traveled in Japan during the school excursion season, it wasn’t unusual to be stopped on the street several times a day by a gaggle of giggling school children eager to try out their English on a real, live foreigner.

I wonder if the same is happening to Governor Lingle during her Chinese junket? At least some students have been studying this page on Way2English.com:

English Lesson

You can see “Hawaii’s Budget Cut: No School Fridays.

A translation of the page is here. The video is an ABC news clip.

Shame on us.
