Iowa native uses music to teach English in South Korea

Posted:

Peter Strutt just wanted to show his family what he was doing in South Korea when he posted a video on YouTube in August. He told his sister Cheri Strutt he never thought the video would become an internet sensation.

Strutt is a McGregor native who has spent a year and a half teaching English and music to children at Sullivan School in Seoul, South Korea.

Cheri Strutt said her brother used the song "Judy is a Punk" by the Ramones as a fun way to get the 3-year-olds interested learning a new language.

His video on YouTube is getting lots of attention and has close to 200,000 hits.

He has also used "The World's Greatest" by R. Kelly. Peter Strutt is a 2004 graduate of Cornell College and he will be moving back to Iowa this spring.
