Follow Me! was a series of television programmes produced by the BBC in the late 1970s to provide a crash course in the English language. It became popular in many overseas countries as a first introduction to English; in 1983, one hundred million people watched the show in China alone. It was, and maybe still is, the most successful English course ever.

(NOTE: Explanations are later given in Portuguese)
