One on One Lesson Success & Shy Kids

Whilst I always recommend you move up to group lessons (with ideally 8 students!) as soon as possible (they work out financially and academically better for all involved – after all it’s much more fun talking in English to your friends rather than just the teacher!) Β many of us did of course start with one-on-one lessons.

And, compared with other systems,Β Genki EnglishΒ gets really great results.

Elisabeth has just sent in this email of her first one-on-one lesson in Canada with Genki English:

I finally started my first lessons. I teach one to one. Not too easy but…….it was a great succes !!

IMG_0026Even the most shy kids were moving and singing together with me. They all like your games very much.

This afternoon a very shy five year old, who cried a lot when his mom left, wanted to stay at the end ofΒ the lesson and play the game. His mom came to pick him up and asked him what he learned. AlthoughΒ he almost didn t say anything during the lesson, he whispered in her ear: What’s your name? My name is Emile.
Can you imagine how proud I was of him??!!!

Greetings from Elisabeth

I’m always very happy to get emails like this! Β What success stories have you had with Genki English?

P.S. Β  The minicard games are also really popular for this type of lesson. Β Just follow the regular lesson plan and curriculum, but swap out the class game for one of theΒ minicard games.

P.P.S. I’ve also written up my otherΒ One-on-one lesson ideas here.

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!

    I’ve recently received your free starter pack; my kids and I loved it! I am saving money each month so that I can purchase your whole set sometime soon.

    I have a boyfriend who is 26 years old and does not know a single word on English. We are from Malaysia and first language is Malay. But he wants to learn English. How can I teach him? He doesn’t have much free time as well because of work. Please help me πŸ™‚

    Anyone ever tried GENKI English in an On Line Session (Perhaps using ‘ManyCam’).

    I have done a GENKI English Song or GENKI Phonics, for some of my ‘DaDaABC’ younger Students when there was still time at the end of the Courseware (and not worth starting on next Unit). seemed better than playing Tic/Yac/Toe or something!
