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!) many of us did of course start with one-on-one lessons.
And, compared with other systems, Genki English 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 !!
Even 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 of the lesson and play the game. His mom came to pick him up and asked him what he learned. Although 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! What success stories have you had with Genki English?
P.P.S. I’ve also written up my other One-on-one lesson ideas here.
