In Asia, chances for face-to-face interaction with English speakers are limited, making it harder to learn English. But the situation is changing. A study started by the Hong Kong Institute of Education has found evidence of language learning and teaching on the social networking website YouTube.  The study investigated a video featuring the 2008 Olympics song, Beijing Welcomes You, which was sung in Mandarin Chinese. It was translated and subtitled by amateurs or fans into English — a process known as fansubbing’. The researchers were particularly interested in the comments made by viewers. They were investigating whether there was informal language teaching and learning taking place.  We have seen language teaching and learning-related episodes where there is direct attention to language forms, but also episodes where there is relatively deep discussion of issues concerning languages and cultures,’ said principal investigator Professor Philip Benson.  The online interactions often involved English and Chinese speakers helping each other to learn each other’s language. Findings showed that online language teaching and learning had ‘an informal and playful character often characterised by a direct style of correction and expressing opinion that may be unique to YouTube.’ Your teacher wants your group to give a presentation to encourage other students to learn English outside the classroom.
