    Are you tall enough to learn English? Have you ever reflected on the relationship between height and language learning? Well, I haven’t, and I’ve been in language teaching and learning for almost 20 years. So, I assume that most of you haven’t, either. Probably you are even thinking that a relationship between height and language learning is unlikely to exist. However, it does, as I’ve recently discovered when I read Leslie T. Chang’s fabulous book Factory Girls: From village to city in a changing China.
