as of 30 seconds ago, i have been convinced to get the ‘learn english at home in 30 days’ course from either TVS or star networks. i don’t know which, but watching the quandary of the little boy who knows no english as compared to his compatriot.. or even the stuttering sales talk of the UP-bhaiyya salesmen in an office; really makes one think. it may have been the stuttering apology of the waiter that slowly brings a smile to the face of his customer. who obviously lets him go with a big tip. then, of course, there is the most convincing “skit” of all. the geeky college kid that kept silent, and was called ‘bhaiyya’ by the girls, by his own admission. of course, the issue was that he could not speak ‘ingliss’. people thought he was a serious boy, who was studious… which he wasn’t – by his own admission, again. such is the hard life of college today.
all these people benefited by this unique cd and book combo (with an ayurvedic medicine bottle for free!), which uses proven scientific techniques of concentrating brain power to specific areas, and indeed.. uses no reading, writing, or anything else to teach you english. i’m guessing somewhere in all this there is a wire on a spike, a la the matrix, and stuff is piped right into the “concentrated” part of your brain.
of course, one cannot forget the advanced dictionary that you get as well.
and finally the in-chorus final endorsement by the people i spoke about earlier. “get de lurn ingliss en tirty das, todayyyy !”
i so need this.
