Cold in Tottori & Thanks to Saga JETs!

Finished work at two and started work at 7 (it’s strange waking up at that time of the morning, I didn’t realise it was so light then!). There was a post on the discussion board asking about the Theory behind Genki English and I realised there isn’t much about it on the site – I guess I was just asking people to trust my research! So I started a reply back but it ended up massively long!! It is good to get everything written down though, but it’s so long I need to edit it up a bit more, a bit more time please!

I also got some fantastic emails today, including one from South Africa and one from the JETs in Saga asking us to do their mid year conference. Very often the only people who we hear talking about Genki English are the people who moan (usually high school JETs saying the site’s not suitable for them – please tell us some ideas you use and we’ll put them on the site. It’s not just Elem School, I’m quite happy to put up info for all teachers!). But it’s so great to hear from the people who use the site everyday and the comments they had were just great (things like “I think this idea ROCKS!!!!!!!Β ” & “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”) , need I say more! We’re really looking forward to coming down there!

Then it was time to get everything ready for our 3 day tour of Tottori and getting ready for the 7 hour drive up here! Mind you it is freezing! I packed my long trousers but I wish I’d have brought a sweater, all I have is Ehime T-shirts!!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. 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. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
