Fodder analysis

Showed my sec1 classes the trailer for Mad About English. Most of them found it amusing, but somehow the GE classes laughed the hardest. Like exaggeratedly so. I wonder if this is just a sign that they’re less inhibited and restrained, or if they are really less able to empathise with slow learners…

(Is it true? Are GEPpers really socially retarded?)

  1. hm. had forgotten about this movie. liked and also disliked some parts of the movie. but i guess its a good starting point for discussion.

    but why shouldnt one laugh, really. all language learners laugh at one another. learning language is a live and fun process, its not studying law.

    still, social, economic issues, cultural, whatevers. and well China.
