Eminem taught Zhang English

LONDON: Zhang Ziyi, the star of Memoirs Of a Geisha, found a controversial way of learning English that got her in trouble — she learned by listening and repeating obscene Eminem lyrics. According to contactmusic.com, Zhang studied music and commercials to learn words and phrases. But she confesses that she had no idea just how offensive her Eminem-style English was. She says, “It was television commercials and Eminem. I loved to watch the commercials because they pronounce their words so clearly. I don’t always know what (Eminem) is talking about, so I write down the lyrics and repeat them. Later, I understood how rude they were.”
