I wonder . . .I have developed an ESL program called "Footballogy (tm): An English Language Learner's Guide to American Football." The book product is expected to roll out at the Beijing Internatioanl Book Fair in 2018. I intend to be doing workshops at univeristies, book stores, civic centers, et al, on teaching English in the context of America's number one sports passion--gridiron football. In addition to nuts and bolts, it gets into the culture, heritage and traditions of the sport and parlays the language into its comnmon usage in everyday life and business. We shall see if thsi will fly in China and, indeed elsewhere. Some observers feel this sport is headed to the Olympics as an exhibition event. On the pro level, the LA Rams are slated to play a regular season game there in 2019.
