The only place in Japan my wireless internet doesn’t work is the mountains of Hiroshima! And it took my computer over night just to download the 2 days worth of email ( mostly spam of course!). And this morning I had loads of deadlines to get things sorted, so didn’t leave Hiroshima till lunchtime!!

I also put up a page about Craig Desorcy’s “Super Teaching in Japan Handbook” – it’s a great collection of all the hints, tips and advice that all the successful teachers here use. I’m so glad that someone actually took the time to put them in a book, it saves me having to write the same sort of info down in reply to all the emails I get!

Now I’m on the Shinkansen to Osaka where I have a few meetings today and then a full day workshop tomorrow! That will be so good, just being able to present everything, not just the very simple stuff!! I had a run through the materials on the train and the GE website is just so useful, even I’m impressed and I wrote it! Best of all most of the ideas don’t need any preparation, just the picture cards and CDs. I’m also looking forward to trying lots of the Readers’ Games for the first time, Cowboy and Harry Potter look really great!

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!
