Title: Sing Along in English: Doing English in Indian Classrooms
Pune, Maharashtra, India. Kalmadi High School, Mini Kindergarten class (2-3 years old). English-medium Indian students watch songs in English on TV. Students sit mesmerized by a video playing songs in English. An assistant sits beside them and makes sure they stay on task, mainly, sit quietly and watch the video. Their bright colored uniforms set them apart from the other grade levels at the school and blend into the bright colors of the classroom and its wall decorations.
