The Indian presentations I did in May were a huge success. But however big or motivating a single week of workshops can be, the teachers face new challenges and come up with new ways to use the materials in the classroom.

So this week I’m back in India, mainly as a fact finding mission to find out what what works, what needs changing, what other materials are needed and what problems the teachers are having with Genki English and their new phonics programme. Rather than just writing on the blog, I thought you might like to see an Indian street hence the video! Our schools are in the poor areas of town (I’ll try and shoot some video there next week), but this video today is in the very posh part of the city.

I’m invited to a wedding this evening and it’s a festival day today (hence all the orange flowers) so if I can I might update this post later tonight.

Anyway, let me know if you want to see more videos!

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...

    It’s great to see you in India! Yeah, I’d love to see more videos!!

    The town you are in is very lively, isn’t it?

    I wish you have a great time there!

    I’ve not even had a chance to see this clip yet, but it is India, so it must be fascinating. So, yeah, more video clips! If only to whet the appetite of those of us unable to go jetting around the world…..

    Good luck with your mission, Mr Graham!
