Proof Obama is the socialist overlord 3

Obama speech book

Follow Barack Obama (to Learn English)

You know that headline is a joke, right?

Seriously, the Chinese regard Obama’s oratory highly. A few of my students listen to his speeches (especially his acceptance speech and the one in Shanghai’s Fudan University) to improve their spoken English. Bookstores also have speeches by other famous Americans in compilations, even a few by George W. Bush. He did make one or two reasonably good ones.

    I also teach ESL. 🙂 Are students memorizing, then reciting the speeches for spoken English practice? We have listened to several speeches in class including Martin Luther King's "I have a Dream" from http://www.amer​icanrhetoric.co​m/ This site is a great resource!

    They do it on their own time, mostly. I know that site well, and recommend it to my students, especially ones who will participate in the English speaking contests here.
