English Fever = an overwhelming desire to learn English (and make sure your children learn English).
The obvious importance of English in today's world has given rise to English Fever. I propose here a cure that does not threaten the first language, that is available to all students regardless of family income, that does not require full "immersion" or the extensive use of native speakers, and that leads to continuing growth in English after the program ends.
