“Last Samurai” star & Genki English in new TV Drama

Wow, the start to 2004 has been exciting to say the least!

“Last Samurai” star Koyuki is playing the part of an English teacher in the major new Fuji TV Drama series. So guess what materials the producers chose for her character to teach with? Genki English of course!! So after appearing with Tom Cruise on the big screen, on Tuesday night she was singing one of my songs ( “How are you?“) on TV to over a million viewers!! Flippin’ eck!!!

This week is also really exciting as GenkiEnglish.com is now an official company (“kabushiki gaisha” in Japanese). Up until now we’ve been working as a “sole trader” business, but hopefully the new designation will help me to branch out and make Genki English available to even more people.

I’m also working really hard on some cool new stuff for the site, so keep tuned in and I wish you all a very, very Genki 2004!

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!
