Today my cell phone company sent me an unsolicited offer for free French lessons timed to coincide precisely with the period when my French tutor will be out of town.
This creeps me out a little. How did they know I started working on my French skills again a few weeks ago? How did they know that the Parisienne who’s been helping me is out of town on exactly these seven days, so I need alternative ways to practice? Someone must have been eavesdropping on me.
The service is part of MTN’s new SMS program called mLearning. I could find virtually nothing about it on the web so I’m going to try it out for a while and report on it in future posts.
