World´s largest English class in.....?

buzz this
Spanish newswire EFE reports an attempt to break the Guiness world record for the largest English class by Mexico on August 29: México intentará batir récord Guiness con la mayor clase de idiomas del mundo (Mexico will attempt to break the Guiness world record for the largest langauge class.)

The class will be held in the stadium at the Ciudad Universitaria in DF (Distrito Federal - Mexico City) and held simultaneously in 25 other cities in public squares, all with the watchful eye of Guiness officials.

Mexico wants t break the record held by Germany in 2006 when 6,287 students gathered to learn languages.

The 45-minute class will cover basic English: salutations and greetings, the numbers or telling time.

In Mexico, though bordered to the north by the United States, only 10 percent of the population speaks English, and this event hopes to "impulsar la enseñanza del inglés" (promote English teaching) - and learning too!

What a great way to call attention to the importance of learning languages and especially inglés!

So mark your calendars and if you are in Mexico, attend a local lesson!
