Woke up in Tokyo and it was freezing. Flew back down to Fukuoka and it was really nice! So straight back to work and after a few emails I got a call saying I needed to buy a bigger laser printer ASAP, it seems the picture cards are proving very popular at the moment and we’ve nearly run out of stock! I also checked the orders and we sold a lot of superpacks yesterday, I should go to DisneyLand more often! In town I happened to bump into a friend and big Genki English fan. I mentioned that I was thinking of moving to Fukuoka, and just like everyone else the answer was “please do”. Well, it is a nice place! Then after more work down by the river I uploaded 3 more phonics quizzes. That means there is basically all kids need to read English free on the site! To be honest I should have made the phonics page into a paid for product. But teachers have been giving me such good feedback about the results their kids have been having by using the page at home, that I figured “OK, let me just give it away!”. You never know, if enough kids start using it, it could be the page that lets Japan learn to read!! That took till about 10-ish, so whilst finishing off today’s emails I’m checking out “Boku to Kanojyo” on Fuji TV to see which Genki English materials they’ll use this week!!

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...
