Exactly 20 years ago, back in the year 2000, I gave up my full time school teaching job and Genki English became my full time occupation.
The website I had started one year earlier to share my ideas, lesson plans and games.Β My motivation was seeing so many kids suffering from really bad lessons and I figured with the experience I had I could help!
The full time thing started off crazy small with a bicycle in a typhoon, Β then borrowing a friends’ 1975 camper van to tour the country and finally out to national newspapers, international TV, TEDx, trips to LA, Thailand, Tanzania, India, Β Vietnam, Europe and beyond.
The most important point? Β We’ve played a small part in thousands of teachers and millions of students around the world hopefully get a better education. Β It has been hard. Β Very hard. Β But also full of smiles, amazing people and definitely worth it.
Thank you for all your amazing support!
And ….. Be genki!!!
P.P.S. Β And to celebrate I just added a new course to add extra value to theΒ Teacher’s SetΒ – it’s on how to teach Advanced C1/C2 level English (a great extra string to your bow) and all you amazing VIPs can find it hereΒ – Enjoy! π
