There is educational theory that postulates movement assists learning. Maybe that’s the idea behind the Japanese videos that use scantily-clad women, synchronized movement and word repetition to help the Japanese learn English.

When learning a foreign language, most of us learn phrases that will let us eat, sleep, find a restroom and navigate to the next tourist attraction. Apparently, the Japanese view of English-speaking countries necessitates learning phrases that can be used during muggings and after eating disagreeable food.

You really have to watch the videos to appreciate how the Japanese learn English.
