So bad it's hillarious

Imagine a cheap, cheesy Moscow club, playing bad synth music that could be from the backing track of a CBBC documentary. Then imagine a sleazy man from Surrey flirting with a Russian girl who laughs at his bad jokes because she's after his money. Then imagine the acting, scripting and production values of a CBBC documentary.

I love the idea of using music to aid learning, and if it actually worked it'd be possible to laugh through or ignore the cheesiness. For me at least, it didn't. They have the Russian first then the English, so my brain filters out what the Russian lass says, because when I hear it I have no idea what she's saying, then the sleazy Surrey man tapes over any lingering traces of memory for it that I might have. To be fair, the music rhythm thing kind of works - I have a really clear memory of Mr Woking saying "I would like..." "I would like..." in a clear south-east accent.

If you're Russian, you want to learn English and you have a good sense of humour, you'll enjoy this and will probably learn a bit from it. I'm not convinced it works the other way around.
