Meet the 10-year-old YouTube star teaching the world how to speak English

FIFE, Wash. – She may be 10 years old but Emily Gapon has her own YouTube channel, “Emily’s English” with thousands of subscribers to learn a new language.

“Hello my friends!” she says at the beginning of each clip. “Privet, moi druzʹya!” she added in Russian.

“I teach people English by speaking Russian,” says Gapon.

Her parents are from Ukraine, so she grew up speaking Russian at home.

“Before I went to kindergarten, they taught me how to speak Russian properly and then they sent me to school,” says Gapon.

“Emily’s English” began when the pandemic broke out in March 2020 when she was 7 years old and stuck at home.

“Emily has a lot of free time so we want her to stay busy and the way to keep her busy is to start this YouTube channel,” her mother Anna Gapon said.

More than a million people watched the first video.

“She did a great job and we thought we’d go with that idea,” Emily’s mother said.

Initially, Emily Gapon’s videos were all made at home. Then she started participating in the show on the road. Seattle first. Then as far as Dubai. The videos also became more lavish.

“Emily’s English” is a family affair.

“Emily is our actress,” said Anne Gapon. “I’m the scriptwriter and Evelyn is in charge of the subtitles and her father, my husband, is the cameraman, producer, and editor.

They get paid additionally. Most were sent from the other side of the world. Sometimes it’s even closer.

“I asked my teacher if she could show me the video ‘Emily’s English’ and then all my classmates just said, ‘Wow! “They were shocked. They loved it!” Emily said.

With “Emily’s English”, a little girl is making a very large world a friendlier place for all of us.
