130m people on less than $1 a day, this is how we’re helping

Here’s a video of the current project I’m doing in India, for the ASPIRE programme.
Hopefully this will be the first in a series so we can see how things progress as the children learn with phonics and Genki English!

What do you think?

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    HI:)
    Thanks a lot for sharing the Indian experience:) I had some summer teaching experience as a volunteer in Nepal – so I really know what you are talking about when you describe it as chalk and board teaching. I would strongly recommend trying out teaching skills there. Usually with no equipment(f we teach in so called state schools), no photocopier, no pictures, no books – apart from the textbook full of excerpts from Dickens , etc.,no posters, card games, board games or whatever we use in our language classrooms.The computer is present in the kids’ life but only in the Internet cafes.So it was very challenging, a tough test for being a real teacher.On the other hand it was so rewarding ! They need English so much and most of them have the motivation that can do wonders. I hope I will be able to repeat the experience this summer. And I keep my fingers crossed for you and your Indian students. I could see in the video you taught women as well! Thanks a lot – on behalf of them – they need it as much as the children. And an educated mother means educated childre:) All the best in your work.
