Global Education City ~ Korea's English Focus

Interesting to read Choe Sang-Hun's NYTimes piece Western Schools Sprout in South Korea. They are prioritizing English as world business language...
"By 2015, if all goes according to plan, 12 prestigious Western schools will have opened branch campuses in a government-financed, 940-acre Jeju Global Education City, a self-contained community within Seogwipo, where everyone -- students, teachers, administrators, doctors, store clerks -- will speak only English."
Very cool. And an impressive commitment.
