  • Join three gravure models - Akiho Yoshizawa, Mihiro, Kasumi Kaho, and learn English. That&apos;s right, ENGLISH by way of simple sentences and sexy models. Stare at a girl such as Akiho and watch as she recites a bit of English and prompts you to repeat what she just said. The gals are invariably chipper, ebullient, and attractive as they are shown in crisp and bright DVD-quality video. Stare too intently and you might crack the PSP screen. Japanese vocabulary blocks

  • “ Conquer English to make China stronger!!” is the slogan of Li Yang’s Crazy English course in Beijing Li’s classes - held often in large arenas attract large followings, making him a sort of “Elvis of English” for many Chinese. Some followers even go so far as to donate blood just to be able to attend his lectures, while others faint in the crowds as if at a Beatles concert. Whether these ardent fans are actually learning English remains unclear. What is clear, however, is that this “crazy English” program is one of the few instances of visible populism in China since the Cultural Revolution. Having taught himself English - and in China, no less Li does not claim to love the West, and instead describes it as an imperialist power set on infiltrating China with its customs and culture. His insistence on English is thus derived from a recognized need to close the gap between English-speaking and non-English speaking countries, rather than from any particular affinity towards all things Western. More than an English course, Crazy English appears to be a way of liberating millions of Chinese from centuries of cultural indoctrination and making available to them a world beyond their own. :  “ Calling the program Crazy English is a stroke of genius. It provides the students with the justification for liberating themselves from centuries of cultural conditioning that expected people to be reserved and act within a group context instead of being openly assertive as individuals. Crazy people get to do anything they want.”
