Eton vs Gangnam Style

Eton College, England's most famous, and most exclusive public school, has been teaching the sons of the great, good and plain rich for the past 565 years. Founded by King Henry VI, it has grown to a school of 1,290 boys aged 13 to 18, charging fees of more than £20,000 a year. There are so many famous Old Etonians (David Cameron, the current Prime Minister, and Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, are Old Etonians), the school has to divide them into categories, including Prime Ministers, Royals, Martyrs and Saints. Never before, however, has it produced stars in the field of 'K-pop', or high-energy Korean disco music. Until now. A group of sixth formers from the public school have created an internet smash hit in that very genre, after posting a VIDEO PARODY of the number one hit 'Gangnam Style' on YouTube. The English Blog suggests some tips to approach this video in class. Take a look at them HERE.
