English-education city opens in S. Korea

With a big bang, the groundbreaking for an ambitious new project on
the South Korean island of Jeju got under way last week, a project
that hopes to make these "geese" nouns obsolete.

The central idea is relatively simple. More than US $1.3 billion will
be poured into creating a city where elementary schools, middle and
high schools, and ultimately universities, will be taught almost
entirely in English.

Top-notch schools outside of South Korea are jumping in, one of the
first being Britain's North London Collegiate School.

And while the location will be in Jeju, organizers say the curriculum,
except for Korean language and history, will all be taught in English
and be identical to that being taught at the institute's headquarters.
