Phonics CD and the need for GenkiMaths

The plan this month was to get the new Genki Phonics CD ready for the big launch at the Maruzen Bookstore in Tokyo on the 23rd. The thing is that nobody has anything like the phonics CD I’m planning. But after trying to record it for the last couple of weeks I think I know why – I don’t think it’s physically possible to record it!! Hmmm… this is a bit of challenge! But as I’ve passed the deadline then I think I’ll leave it till I get back to Japan next month. It’s been good this month just hanging out in the UK, being able to get up, watch a bit of telly, popping out and getting some work done when I want. There was also a big thing on the news about Maths education in England not working because it’s not fun enough… sounds like a job for Genki Maths!! It’s also strange being back in England as I just hang out at home, just being a big kid. The thing is that a lot of people in Japan think I lead the same hectic business life over here as I do in Japan. So I have lots of people saying “Can you help with this?”, “Do you know these people?”, when in reality I haven’t a clue about anything in the UK really!! I half expect people to think I dine with the Queen every night! Watching Coronation Street is more like it!

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!
