Learning English the Manly Way

After close to two years I still love shopping in China. You never know what curious things await you. Case in point, from the children's section of a local bookstore:





It's not that we don't have war-inspired children's toys and merchandise in America (I remember owning a pack of Desert Storm trading cards myself) or America could be considered a pacifistic country at the moment , but the learning English theme is interesting. But hey, if "guided-missile submarine" inspires a child to learn a foreign language, I'm all for it.

There was also an earlier post at Sinosplice about the same subject.

Hey Dan, I've been reading around here a little bit after finding a link here from dave's esl cafe.

Was wondering if I could contact you through email or msn [if you have]; drop me a line at dan.desousa[at]gmail.com [works for email and msn!]. I would really like to get some pointers in my situation.

Thanks,
~dan

I've seen some similar English materials here... just not with so much military junk (I'm not paying close enough attention). I think I have to pick up some of these to bring home.
