I don’t mean to make anyone jealous, but here’s something that might cheer up a winter’s morning. It’s a video I took of the hotel where I’m staying in Koh Samui.  It amazing that it’s cheaper for me to stay here than in Tokyo.

The new project I mention is really exciting. It’s still a little secret but I’m sure a lot of you are going to like it, I’m trying to get all the new materials together to hopefully include as well.

One nice thing about the 2007 Thai project is that as the Ministry of Education organised and paid for Teachers’ Sets for all the primary schools, none of the teachers themselves paid for the sets they received. Maybe that’s something you could ask your Ministry of Education about in your country, then you too could keep getting the latest sets for free!

Anyway, enjoy the video!

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...

    And there was me, getting excited over the slightest increase in temperature here in Tokyo! Maybe I should suggest my school take a short ensoku ;D

    That looks fantastic. What a great place to be, so quiet and peaceful for working. I fancy a dip in the pool too! Oh well sledging in the mountains for me today as there is plenty of snow.!!!

    Looking forward to the surprise, can’t wait to hear all about your new project!

    Ooooohhh, I’m dead jealous, more snow here today and minus temperatures. Took my son to an indoor skateboarding part for a coulpe of hours today, so froze my butt off. Would love a dip in that pool.
