Another video from the Fukuoka workshop about teaching with Genki English. It’s in Japanese but I’ve added subtitles. The topics we cover are:
* Multiple Intelligences (i.e. different people learn in different ways, but teachers are usually driven by reading and writing)
*Accents (use computers to get the kids good),
*L +1 (don’t rabbit on in English, use language that is the kids’ level plus a little bit)
*Meanings (you must teach the meanings of the words in a way that the kids understand i.e. in this case Japanese)
then we go into one of the Genki English songs “Eat! Drink! Dance!”
Plus a cool trick to calm down the over genki kids!
And just look at the reaction this got from the students on the Youtube page – they love it!
P.S. for those of you on email, here’s the online video if it doesn’t show up above!
