Learning English

It is a sign of our school’s sophistication that English classes start as early as age 2. Every week I get handouts with simple phrases printed out in English and Chinese: Hello Teacher, Sit, Stand, Goodbye.

Mostly the class consists of singing, but the songs are unfamiliar. In content, theme and pragmatic intent, the latest seems suspiciously Chinese.

It goes like this: “I like noodles, I like rice, I like tomatoes, I like tofu. I love food”
