AIT’s Kaohsiung Office Provides Pop Culture English Lessons for KMRT Riders

The Kaohsiung Office of the American Institute in Taiwan is proud to present the fourth series of American Pop Culture Lessons.  Starting November 24, the fourth series will be broadcast in the Kaohsiung MRT stations and McDonald’s stores around Taiwan at the same time as a public service.

This year’s production and broadcast is possible thanks to support from the Kaohsiung City Education Bureau, the Kaohsiung Tourism Bureau, Chilin Technology Company Limited, Pilot TV, Bank SinoPac, National Sun Yat-sen University, and G3 Audio & Video Propagates Company Limited.

As with last year’s program, 15 lessons will run for 60 to 90 seconds and each lesson will be broadcast in Kaohsiung MRT stations and McDonald’s stores around Taiwan on a daily basis for a week, with a new lesson every week. Afterwards, the lessons will be broadcast on the AIT/K website.

Various American volunteer actors and actresses were involved in the project, lending their native English to the videos.  The 15 episodes were filmed at various tourist sites in the Kaohsiung area, including Sizihwan Beach, Shoushan, Meinung, Cishan, and the China Steel Building. We would like to extend our thanks to the many enthusiastic organizations and individual supporters who made this program possible.
