New Delhi, Sep 2 (ANI): An 80-year-old Chinese man, who wants to spread the English language, has authored and published three booklets in the past four years to help people learn it.

Tang Zaixing, from Nanhai district of Foshan, Guangdong province, moved to Foshan from Hong Kong when new China was founded in 1949, and his dream of learning English faded away, reports the China Daily.

But he started to regain interest in it after he retired from service in 1991, and began learning the language again, printing his first oral English booklet while he was hospitalised four years ago.

Tang, whose library consists of a huge collection of English books, distributed copies of the booklet to doctors and nurses at the hospital.

But his passion for the language does not end there, as he even has the walls of his house covered with English words. (ANI)
