๐Ÿ“ Just a minute! Why is there so much writing in the new Genki English course?

Everyone one who has seen the new Genki English Course for advanced learnersย has asked me…

Just a minute! Why is there so writing there? ย Don’t you always tell us to NOT teach writing?

Well the answer is …. because it’s an advanced course ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking and fluency is always first, but as soon as students can already speak and listen and read well i.e. advanced or maybe intermediate, ย then it is time to use the power of writing.

After all writing is the superhuman power of Time Travel. ย ( Think about it ๐Ÿ™‚

The period you don’t do writing is in the beginning.

(Just think of all the high schools around the world who do writing too early – and the results they get!)

So it’s a simple 1,2,3

  1. Speaking first ( with the Teacher’s Set) with the focus on getting everyone to be super confident speakers.
  2. After 100 lessons or so bring in phonics for the reading.
  3. Then move into the mechanics of writing

Then when you get into advanced classes we can really use that power of writing to transform your English level in just 30 days!ย 

Be genki,

Richard

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...
