Introduction to English-speaking Countries (Lesson Outlines) Foreign teachers at Chinese universities are sometimes asked to teach a course with a name such as "A General Survey of English-speaking Countries", or "An Introduction to English-speaking Countries", or similar. I taught this course for a semester in 2003, and found the lesson preparation quite overwhelming. This was especially the case since I was given very little guidance and no clear objectives. In the hope that it might be of some assistance to other teachers who find themselves in a similar situation, I have collected together some notes on how I ran the course, and the Microsoft Powerpoint presentations which I used during the lectures. Of course, I do not expect that any teacher would follow these notes to the letter, since their own lessons will naturally be influenced by their individual expertise and their ideas about teaching. I would like to make it clear that this is not an ideal teaching plan, and if I taught the course again I would certainly make some alterations.

New Zealand English To the untrained ear, the Southern Hemisphere accents — Australian, New Zealand and South African — are rather similar. This may have to do with the fact that it is much easier to travel between these places than from any of them to Britain or North America. Listen more closely, however, and you'll hear that the accents have in fact developed in different directions. This young woman, like many New Zealanders, uses the word "Kiwi" to refer to both herself and her way of speaking. The kiwi is a national symbol of New Zealand — if you're talking about a flightless bird with a long beak. The kiwi fruit, although often imported from New Zealand, is native to China. Access VG1: Extra text: English in Jamaica The story of how English came to Jamaica is closely connected to one of the most shameful chapters in the history of the British Empire: the slave trade. The British conquered Jamaica from Spain in 1692 and the island soon became a producer of sugar. Harvesting sugar cane requires a lot of manpower, more than the British could supply themselves. The local population was no use – they had already been wiped out. The solution was found over the ocean in West Africa.
