A quote from Tamas' post that immediately attracts attention:
The typical teenager will:
- Wake up to music, 90 percent of which is in English. Task: Describe the kind of music you like waking up to.
- Check Facebook. Half of the posts from their friends are cartoons, videos or music, with the occasional article, all in English. Task: Choose the best video or comic your friends have posted this week and choose the group top list.
- Go to school by public transport, and listen to music during the journey. Task: Talk about the soundtrack to your daily journey, and why you choose this music.
