How to Learn English - an ESL Infographic

I'm bringing copies of this infographic by Kaplan into my TEFL class this week. There's some interesting information here about what elements of western pop culture attract ESL learners.

Bob Marley? Star Wars? This survey was definitely not done in Korea.

  6. Dear Anne, I just read your article about "How to learn English". To be honest, I am NOT suprised that the majority of learners said, that watching TV and movies helped them learning a foreign language. Actually we apply this concept at successfully for learning English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. We produce videos with glimpses of daily life which enables viewers to learn essential vocabulary, grammar structure, pronuncation and more within the context of authentic situations.
