Quoting: Joseph Hewitt
This week I've been feeling much better; almost back to normal, but still low energy. In between classes I've mostly been staring off into space.
Space as "a blank or empty area" or "L5 space"? Good to hear that you are getting better.
I came across this Asia Times Online article
Meanwhile, Roh, whose loquacious nature never fails to create controversy, has come up with some words of advice that appear at variance with his earlier criticism of South Korean dependence on the US military alliance. Koreans, he has been saying, have got to get up to speed in English if the country hopes to compete more effectively on foreign markets. "International cooperation and coexistence are essential," he said on Educational Broadcasting System. "English skills are a must."
With that, he proposed setting up English immersion centers at 1,300 schools, all staffed with native English-speaking teachers, at a cost of more than $250 million, and the building of an English town on the resort island of Jeju, off the southern coast.
The question is whether South Koreans who look with disdain on American troops on the streets of Seoul and other cities will be more enthusiastic about an army of foreign teachers penetrating their entire society. Like a flood of American imports, their presence may be the price the country will have to bear for shipping ever more goods the other way, to the United States.
