"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

English at school

Hello everybody

While working on my thesis about problems foreign English learners encounter, I noticed that most of the students around the world have difficulties with pronounciation. Therefore, I would love to get to know how much hours of English you have/had at school a week. Could you please also tell me the country you live in?

e.g. 3 hours a week / Belgium

Thanks in advance

    In Nepal children are taught every day for about 40 minutes. However often the teachers don't give the students much opportunity to speak in class, so they get next to no time to practice speaking.

    @mheredge Why do Nepalese students don't even have the chance to practise their speaking skills? Isn't it a part of the subject English then?

    The teachers don't usually like to speak English or if they do, it is not particularly easy to follow them @BrentDeBondtORC. But I think this is a common problem is most of Asia.
