How much is a smile worth?

UPDATE: This offer has now finished.  Thank you to everyone who participated and you can still find the vol. 12 on at the regular price here. (And still worth every penny!)

It’s always tough trying to price Genki English and the smiles it brings to your kids.

And with the new vol. 12 it seems that lots of smiles are the order of the day!

The songs, the animations, games and everything else make it almost magical. And are almost guaranteed to make you one of the most popular teachers with your kids!

So my dilemma is how much to charge for it?

We know that “free” doesn’t work – because that’s what it gets valued at i.e. zero.  And also that doesn’t provide funds for the next one.

And how much should software be anyway?

For example “Flash”, the software I use to make the Genki English software, costs $699 and the upgrade costs $119.

“Komplete 8 Ultimate”, the music package I’d love to have for the next songs,  costs $1,099   and the upgrade costs $559.

So even without thinking about the extra fun you’ll be having, but just thinking about other software and  …

  • How much Genki English can make you in terms of getting extra students
  • How it helps you keeping existing students
  • Not to mention the homework programme
  • And all that saved preparation time,

Then how much is all this worth to you?

I’m probably going to put the Download Pack up to $299 soon.

And I also know lots of teachers use Genki English in very low income developing countries.

3 Days Only

So for the next 3 days, till Wednesday evening, I’m going to put the new vol. 12 download pack on at not $89 – which I’m sure people would be willing to pay,  but just $19.99.  That’s less than $2 a lesson!

I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a ridiculously cheap price.

The idea is that it’s a big “Thank you” to VIP members who have helped spread the word about Genki English to their friends.

And for teachers who haven’t had the courage to buy the full Teacher’s Set yet, hopefully it will give you a little taste of what is in the full pack.

But I’ll only be able to do this till Wednesday (when my office manager gets back from holiday and will tell me how stupid I’m being!)

So if you want the latest version, today’s the day!

Order here for Non Members:

What other teachers are saying?

Just in case you want more proof, here are just some of the comments from the beta test!

This is absolutely amazing! I loved it. Cool characters, bright colours, catchy songs.. This is what kids need.. Can’t wait to try them in class. – Eva in Hungary

Fantastic. I love it. What a great CD. I already have two favorites: Pirates and Gingerbread Man. Your CDs should be used in all schools…the kids love Genki English. So do I.. – Betty in Germany

Awesome work! I had a quick run through the various themes and found them adorable… – Nena in Italy.

Fantástico como siempre, me encanta mucho Genki English, amo Genki English – Maria in Mexico

Richard, it’s been said by others but this volume is amazing! Absolutely wonderful and so much fun, the kids loved it! Especially pirates coloured beards and spider prepositions. – Sussie in Italy

Dear Richard, I am speechless!!!! It is simply GREAT! – Kolinda in Croatia

Awesome. I love every bit of it. – Fantastico in Turkey

You can’t really put a price on having your students walk out of class with huge smiles on their faces.

But I’m sure $19.99 is more than worth it.

Thanks for all the support!

Be genki,


P.S.  I’ll make the price increase Wednesday at 11:59PM at your local time, so it works out fair for everyone!

P.P.S Please feel free to post about this offer on facebook, twitter, blogs etc.  I’m happy for everyone to take the opportunity!

Richard Graham

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!

    Hi Richard,
    Being one of those who missed the beta test, I’m not entirely sure what’s on vol.12. Can you give us a list, or better yet a sample with pictrues of what’s on it? Thanks!

    I think the teachers pack is too cheap because:
    a)You can teach all the topics accordin with the curriculum.
    b)You save time in prepare classes.
    c)Pupils learn more with genki english than with another method because it has got the most wonderful CDS, songs, activities, interactive activities you have ever seen.
    d)It’s the funniest method you can find all over the word.
    e)If you are a VIP member, as I’m, Richard sends activities free and also do teachers who are VIP members.
    f)Pupils love genki english, love learning english, are happier and you as teacher feel better.

    Por cierto, soy funcionaria y trabajo en un colegio público en Ponferrada ( Castilla y León), mis alumnos no tienen nada que envidiar a los de los centros privados y con genki english no necesitan ni refuerzo , ni clases particulares.El material lo pagué yo de mi bolsillo, pero ha merecido la pena.
    When I bought it I didn’t know how it was and I was afraid of putting my foot in, but genki English is GREAT.
    As i have all the teachers set, I would like to have vol 12 only.
    Thank you very much

    ∫o question about the content.
    I am still not really through the stuff we got last year.
    “Again Halloween and Christmas?!

    But there is so much more than that. This volume is kind of different in several ways (Well, since CD9 it’s always different,…!)
    It’s like stories, the level is not really higher, but more intense. More than basics, but still simple. And very very detailed, animations and images.
    Some different styles of music as well.
    I think that especially the Halloween stuff can be taught at any season.

    well heavy rain and flash flood warnings have left me alone in the classroom with the newly complete vol 12. After updating my menu with all the new songs from vol 11 & 12 (thanks so much Richard for all the links!) and playing the new volumes on the Smart Board (electronic blackboard) all I can say is WOW! Halloween will be extra fantastic this year, especially for my 5th and 6th graders. It’s always easy to get the younger grades into the Halloween spirit, but these new additions will get even my too cool for school elders on their feet. As always excellent work Richard and I think your fees are more than reasonable considering the outlays you have for software, not to mention all the creative ideas. It’s a fact that lessons with digital, interactive software are the future. Kids these days are digital and they respond to material presented in a digital format.
