Learning English at the Park

I am currently house sitting at my Dad's place while he and Nancy are traveling in China. The following is from his recent email. -Roger Frank

This time email from China brings a blog post from Nancy...

We are in Xi'an, this week, and then we will tour Guilin for one week before returning to Shanghai. Last night Hongying, her husband, and son took us to a neighborhood park for an after dinner stroll.  18 babies from one to two years of age were on a blanketed area, learning English to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. GymBaby was the name of the group of leaders. With clapping hands, stomping feet, touching noses, toes, it was quite a site. Learning English to music, who would have expected such a sight. This was a local neighborhood scene with no tourists. Jia Yue was asked if we are their tutors. He tells them that we are friends, and we are welcomed into the evening's events, openly.
