68%! This figure is so fascinating to me, since I'd be thrilled if even ten percent of our NKHS student body were clever enough to find their way into our German program. (Numbers like twenty percent; forty-; sixty-; nearly seventy percent seem-- radical!)
Furthermore, since the Japanese also learn English (making German their third--or so--language), their world is certainly worthy of our curiosity. They're on to something. These are the kids who will be some of your chief competitors. After all, interest in all things Asian is breaking the lock on the world's pop culture, which the US has enjoyed since post WWII.
Are Asian teens so very different from us?
Maybe you'll enjoy this peek into an Asian (South Korean) boy's band, TVXQ. They incorporate an English chorus. Let me know what you think of their choreography; sound; message.
Did you see elements of the Asian society, which might eclipse the current fascination there is with Times Square?
