While teaching children English in a hagwon (for-profit after-school academy) in Incheon, Korea I was often struck by the bizarre, stilted English in some of the dialogues on the CDs we used for listening classes. The sample used in the first track 'Little Laurie" sounded to me like an inquisitive young Laurie Anderson learning the ways of the world. I left some choice audio on my hard drive knowing I'd find a use for it some day. Today is that day.
