❤ Lesson 121: Genki English Valentine’s!

This year we have Pancake Day on February 13th and then Valentine’s Day the day after – 2 Genki Lessons in a row!

Teacher’s can find the song & animation in the Teacher’s Set and for students it is in the Student Sets!  Enjoy!

Lesson Plan

As always with Genki English we have a really easy 3 step lesson plan:

  1. Warm Up & Review with the Secret Warm Ups
  2. Input with the Genki English song
  3. Output with the classroom game!

Check out the song in action with Frederic’s amazing students below & look how even the younger and older kids are getting into it!

As always,  get the kids to do gestures (works even better in pairs!) and you’ll have a very fun lesson with lots of learning!

“I love you. Happy Valentine’s. I love you. Happy Valentine’s.”
“Give me a ….. hug, smile, high five, heart,  fist bump, wave, wink.  Blow me a kiss!”


Plus for this lesson you can also use the “greetings menus” that are hugely popular right now:



How to get the song/animation/software:

  • Everyone who has bought the Genki English Teacher’s Set in the past year should have it in the “Holidays” section of their software menu:

    So cool! It’s in the best traditions of Genki English-
    a catchy melody, useful vocabulary and bright pictures! What’s especially great is that one can easily come up with gestures!
