An English language school in Japan is using a speech by US President Mr.Barack Obama as a teaching material.
14 students, comprising company workers and housewives, joined a class in Niigata City, central Japan.
First of all they listened to the first 5 minutes of the US president's inaugural speech and then given quizzes on the vocabulary.
The students took turns to practice the speech, imitating Mr.Obama's delivery and body language.
The school will hold the class every week this month because so many people have signed up.
