Here’s a very nice email from Margit, who organised a Genki English workshop in her town last year and liked it so much she’s doing another one this year! Have a look here to see the sort of thing we do!
Many GE readers wrote in the comments that they would like to join a workshop, and asked about when Richard would come to their country.
I myself thought that I would have to go to Tokyo or Okayama or elsewhere (maybe even Germany, if I happened to be there, when a GE workshop was held) to join. It didn’t even come to my mind that I could ask Richard to come to Shiga to hold a workshop. He’s so busy, even if I could gather a couple of people, it wouldn’t pay as much as he deserves…
But after meeting Richard first time last year in a workshop in Osaka I knew that all this was so simple minded, and that I was so wrong. It was beginning of August, and as it was just a half day and I had so many more things I wanted to learn, I organized my own workshop for September.
There was somebody in Mexico, somebody in Korea, and in France during the last two weeks writing that they would like to meet Richard. Maybe I can tell them from my side:
I’ve organized many things, but even small events in the neighborhood weren’t as easy to organize as this workshop with Richard. I’m pretty sure he would go anywhere if it covers the minimum of the costs. And :
…It is soooooo different from watching a teaching DVD from one of the GE workshops. It’s not only the content,~ but it’s the energy.
So, PLEASE anybody who would like to meet Richard, or join a workshop, just go ahead , gather a few people and rent a room and go for it!
