President Obama’s speaking style is very distinct and his voice iconic, much like hearing Reverend Martin Luther King or say Chris Rock, You don’t have to see them speaking to know who it is. But I would not have thought that it would inspire Japanese high school students to learn English, but it is and teachers are even using Obama’s speeches as class curriculum. The Obama English grammar text book has actually become a best seller. The following video is a report on how Obama’s inspiring speeches have captured the affections of would be English speakers in Japan. I actually found the students in the video pretty funny as they seemed to really enjoy learning from Obama sensei.
