Teaching Adults: MBA? Princeton? Genki English? Itโ€™s all the same! TED Talk

Besides being super fun, the reason the Superhero lesson is so near the beginning of the Genki English curriculumย is because it teaches a key skill in that your body language controls you mind.

Kids who are slouching around? ย There’s no chance to get them Genki!

But make them into Superheroes? ย You have instant attention!

Now some of you still keep saying “No, that’s just for kids.”

Nope, it’s what they teach at Princeton on their MBA course too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Try it with your adult lessons, every Genki English lesson has a key confidence point like this built it, from eye contact and handshakes in What’s your name?, ย trying again with Rock, Paper, Scissors, finishing on a high note with How are you?, ย changing “I have to…” to “I can …” or controlling your heart rate with Eat! Drink! Dance!

Also have a look at the book The Charisma Myth, just about every technique Olivia mentions we use in Genki English.

And who are her clients?

Company executives and CEOs! ย  (Plus she gets paid a fortune for doing it!)

There is a reason Genki English is so popular, ย it’s not just because of my orange t-shirts you know! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ninja Trick: ย Andย here’s how to get your adults *wanting* to learn like this!

Be genki,


P.S. ย If you’re still waiting for my TEDx talk to get uploaded, it should be soon!

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!
