Flip Your Classroom with the Genki English “Superclass”

We’ve got a new name for it ….

Imagine trying to learn the guitar without a guitar at home.   That’d be crazy!

Inspired by the success of programs such as Sugata Mitra’s Hole in the Wall (they put Genki English in his schools in Hyderabad!)  and the Kahn Academy’s maths and science programs,  you “flip” your classroom.

Your students have Genki English at home.  They learn at home. Then classroom time is to actually use the English.


Step 1:  Are you ready?

  • You offer a separate “Genki English Superclass” with all the extra benefits of speed, fluency and creativity that come with this program.
  • Either offer the Superclass as a replacement for, or as an alternative to your current English classes.
  • In addition to the extra monthly fee, each student also purchases the Genki English software from you for 190 Euros / US$250 / 29,000 JPY.    Half the money you keep, half you send to Genki English.
  • To insure the success of all students (& to remove a teacher’s fear that parents might buy just one copy and duplicate it)  every student in your Superclass has to purchase the software from you in order to join the class.

Step 2: Each week you ….

  • Each week you assign next week’s lesson as homework.
  • Students play with the video game, song and talking words sections of the software at home and parents check off each time the students do so.
  • Students come to lessons already knowing today’s target English.
  • You simply check their comprehension & pronunciation and do the song all together in class.
  • The rest of the class time is spent actually using the English they have learnt with the classroom games/activities.

Step 3: The future ….

  • Your Superclass students graduate faster than any other class in town.
  • Word spreads.
  • You end up with a waiting list of students desperate to join classes that are much more fun, easy to prepare and fulfilling than ever before.


To apply for the program you have to be a Genki English VIP member, be confident in your own teaching & business skills and believe in your ability to work together with parents to provide a truly Superclass experience.

If that sounds like you there is a small $499 admin fee ( which will pay in advance your first $499 of commissions)  and welcome to the new world!

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...

    I always thought “The homework program” was a very boring name compared to the type of language you normally use and recommend using.

    Dear Richard,
    I do love your proposal, but I want to try a traditional approach in the first hand and so my question – is it a short term offer or I will be able to apply in, say, November?

    Hi Elen,

    Good question! It all depends on how many people apply this year. I’ve increased the up front fee so it should reduce the numbers a little, but if I do get too many people applying I will probably close it again for a few months so I can get caught up on other work!
