Spent a lot of today producing jingles, commentaries and voice overs for the video. I spent a fortune last month on library music, but there is a still a lot of stuff that I’ll just have to write myself. But it is so much easier to produce audio material than video, I guess that’s why I like the format of CD so much! It’s due to a nice mix of spending hours and hours learning music and recording theory as a kid and the fact that video on computer hasn’t quite caught up with the audio side of things yet. I also got a really cool “How are you?” video segment done. Mind you although it looks really good, it’s maybe a bit too different to go on the DVD. Then out for some noodles and a bit of time on the net. I had a look at the English Raven’s guide to language theory, brilliant, all the major theories summed up on one page! I also followed some of the links through to the TPRWorld pages and got really excited about lots of new ideas! I always recommend TPR, calling it the “Warm Up Game”, and the key with learning the songs is to use gestures, but there is so much more you can do with it, cool!! It’s always nice to see it reconfirmed that what I’m doing is all good and above board!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And 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. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
