They're never too young to start learning English. Even if the kids don't take it very seriously at this age,
the parents do. They know -- if your English isn't good enough, you'll end up in a second-tier (or lower) high
school and university. That means a worse job with less pay and lower status. Then how will you take care of your
parents in their old age? How will you find a good wife or husband? |
You may think I'm exaggerating. I'm not. This is serious business to Koreans. If a Korean kid doesn't do well in English, the effects ripple all the way through his life. See why good English teachers are so much in demand?
